Taapsee Pannu who is acting in the sex abuse drama Pink was inspired by Lady Gaga’s act at the Academy Awards 2016 where the noted singer sang her hit number Till it happens to you”, in the presence of sexual assault survivors.
The actress who has been receiving rave reviews on her character says she found motivation from Lady Gaga. In ‘Pink’, Taapsee plays the role of a girl who fights for justice for her and her friends.
Gaga had performed on her Oscar-nominated song “Till it happens to you”, which is based on campus rapes in the US. The popular singer had performed the song in the presence of sexual assault survivors. This evoked a strong emotion in Taapsee, and she would often watch the performance before heading to the film’s set.
Taapsee said in a statement: “Lady Gaga’s song was definitely something that helped me get into the mood before I performed difficult scenes in ‘Pink’. For someone who hasn’t gone through any such incident herself, it’s almost impossible to feel the pain of the victims, but music triggers your mind and emotions. So it definitely helped me to get into that zone.”
‘Pink’, which revolves around three girls trapped in a criminal case, stars Amitabh Bachchan as a lawyer. Produced by Shoojit Sircar, it is directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury. – CINEWS
