Taapsee Pannu has created a niche for herself in the Indian cinema. She picks up roles that have substance over style. Once in a while there is a Judwaa, but mostly there is Thappad, Mulk, Saand Ki Aankh, Game Over. But her journey to be known as a bankable actor has not been an easy one. She had to face rejections galore, sometimes for the silliest reasons. "I faced some really weird things in the beginning like she isn’t pretty enough. I’ve been replaced because the hero’s wife didn’t want me to be part of the film," she said in a recent interview with Filmfare.

She further pointed out other such incidents: "I was dubbing for one of my films and I was told that the hero didn’t like my dialogue so I should change it. When I refused to change it, they got a dubbing artiste to do it behind my back. There was a time when I was told the hero’s previous film didn’t work, so you slash your price because we need to control the budget. There was some hero who wanted my introduction scene changed because he felt it would overpower his introduction scene."
