After nearly a decade of hard work, Taapsee Pannu has managed to carve a niche for herself in the entertainment industry, leading the way for her peers in many aspects. The actress talks about her doing a film on a profit-sharing basis, a practice common for male film stars.

“I did my last Telugu film  on a profit-sharing basis. I shared the profit with my producer as the film had no hero, and the concept was brilliant. I can understand the plight of a producer when there is no hero,” she says, adding “I told him that I would not charge a fee, but take a share of the profit.”

The actress, who will be seen in the upcoming films Soorma and Mulk, says that she cannot use the same strategy in Bollywood.

“I have worked in the South Indian film industry for eight years, and I have to build a certain rapport with the people there; so I can take that risk. I have done so many films there, that people in B and C-centres also know me,” Taapsee says.

“When it comes to Hindi cinema, I am new. I might opt for profit-sharing in the future. The day B and C centre audiences know me well here, I can take the risk. The day I’m sure people will come to watch my films, I will do that deal,” she adds.
