Tapsee…Film does not highlight ‘rape’ or Delhi as a ‘rape capital’.

After becoming famous with Neeraj Pandey’s action-thriller ‘Baby’, Tapsee Pannu portrays a victim of sexual abuse in Pink. She thanks producer Shoojit Sircar for bringing out the best in her during the difficult scenes.

“Shoojit Sircar is extremely good at psyching out an actor. He really brain washed me in order to get me in the mood of the character. He would talk to me for more than half an hour in my vanity van to help me in enacting a particular scene, to get me in the mood of it and make me think like the character before the shoot,” the 29-year-old actress said in an interview.

Explaining the difficulties she faced while filming Pink, the actress said, “Being sexually abused was very difficult to  understand because no matter how hard I try, I can never feel the exact way a molest victim would really feels.”

“But I have tried to be as real as possible and I hope I have done justice to the character. I am not a trained actor, so I really had to put myself in the situation and then act,” she added.

The Chashme Baddoor actress said that the film which speaks about women empowerment, does not highlight ‘rape’ or Delhi as a ‘rape capital’.

“The film is not about rape or Delhi. But Delhi was a perfect place for the story as it was in news since long for being an unsafe place for women. The film tackles a general social perspective but you have to watch the film on September 16 to understand it,” she said.

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, Pink co-stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang and Angad Bedi. – CINEWS
