It's been a remarkable turnaround for actress Taapsee Pannu. Having started out her career in the Telugu film industry in 2010,Taapsee, who earlier worked as an I-T professional, turned her career around with Pink last year. The film worked wonders for her, not just as an actress but also as a person as her confidence has grown tremendously. Taapsee these days seems relaxed and assured and since Pink, she has gone on to act in films like RunningShaadi.com, The Ghazi Attack and Naam Shabana — slowly but surely gaining a foothold in the industry.
Ahead of the release of her upcoming flick Judwaa 2, Taapsee shared a picture of her in a bikini, on her instagram page.
"When you are against the tide, it's YOU who needs to stand up for yourself......But don't forget the smile 😁" #Judwaa2 #AaTohSahi #songteaserout#sun #sand #sea #memoriesgalore#photooftheday (sic)," Taapsee captioned the image.
Even a she earned accolades for her new look, inevitably, the ugly side of social media came to the fore. From the creepy to the downright offensive, trolls targeted Taapsee for her post.
"Km se km social media pe aisi gndi pic mt upload kriye...gndi gndi movie bna ke desh ki young pidhi ko to brbad kr hi rhi h aaplog...(sic)," a twitter user commented.
Not one to back down, Taapsee gave it back in style. "Gndi??? I knew I should've washed that sand off me. Next time I will take care. I 'aaplog' for that (sic)," she tweeted.
Taapsee's witty response won over the internet with plenty of users joining her in her fight against online trolls. Here are some of them:
Looks like the way the tide is turning, Judwaa 2's success could be the icing on the cake for Taapsee. Directed by David Dhawan, Judwaa 2 features Varun Dhawan in the lead role and is slated to hit screens on September 29.
