In Sujoy Ghosh-directed Badla, that appears to be an intriguing murder mystery, Taapsee Pannu’s character (Naina Sethi) is accused of murdering her paramour, and while she’s trying to defend herself, her lawyer, played by Amitabh Bachchan (once again) raises three questions that stump her. The entire guessing game has been an exciting ride for Taapsee, who has nailed almost every role, whether it’s playing a sexual assault victim in Pink, a secret agent in Naam Shabana, or a formidable lawyer in Mulk.
Taapsee is also happy about the fact that Badla is releasing on the International Women’s Day (8 March). “The film shows a very strong female character. Though there are a lot of talks on whether there is a need to celebrate this one day, I feel we should celebrate until equality between both the genders sets in. This should also be the day when we take that one step of bringing a change. My character is on par with the male protagonist in Badla, so this is my way of taking that one step in that direction. It is time now to have an equal role,” says Taapsee.Share this to your,
