The actor also answered a question on the success of his films ‘Badla and Pink’, which raked in decent numbers. He called it the ‘final number’, which suggests that the films started off ‘very average’. Taapsee said that ‘for a film to be a big opener, it should be linked to the presence of a big hero’. He also added that the ‘support of a big filmmaker’ is another criterion for a big opener.

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Taapsee said, “Pay parity doesn’t mean producers don’t want to give money. So stop just blaming the industry for this problem. It starts from the level where women There are not much footfalls when it comes to a film directed by a woman. When it comes to a female-led film, people wait for more reviews than advance booking. When it comes to a male-driven film, advance booking is so much more It happens that in the first weekend itself, that is, on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, a crowd of people gathers.

“For a female-driven film, we have to wait for Monday because till then, there are a lot of word of mouth and reviews which give us a brief idea about the film. We have to go through review test while many Male-driven films start big without any of these. So audiences also have to contribute to this change, then only we can bring about the change that we want to see,” she also said.

Taapsee has several films in the pipeline including Anurag Kashyap’s Dobara opposite Pavail Gulati. It is the official Hindi adaptation of Oriol Paulo’s 2018 Spanish-language film Mirage.
