Taapsee Pannu, who turns 35 on August 1, had once declared she would never date an actor as she preferred only ‘one star’ in the relationship.
Taapsee Pannu has always been forthright and straightforward. The actor, who turns 35 on August 1, has developed a reputation for not mincing her words, whether she is talking about her career or personal life. And this isn’t something new as well. Years ago, when she was still new–and relatively less stable–in Bollywood, Taapsee had declared she would never date an actor, claiming it can never “work out between an actor and an actress”.
In an interview with Hindustan Times in 2016, Taapsee had said why she would never date an actor. “I believe that there can be only one star in a relationship. I am talking for myself. I can’t talk films at work, and then back home as well. I need a clear demarcation between my professional and personal life. It has been my effort to not mix the two. I have a life apart from my work. I feel your career is part of your life, and there are many other parts that make your whole life,” she said.
The actor had touched upon the topic a year prior in 2015 when she discussed her dating preferences in an interview with Bombay Times. “I am clear that there can be only one star in the relationship and that’s me. I personally don’t think it can work out between an actor and an actress,” she had said.
