- Social media trolled Taapsee for allegedly trying to mock Raghavendra Rao
- I am not that stupid. I always give credit to him, said Taapsee
- Taapsee said that there's an 'obsession with a woman's body' everywhere
Earlier this month, Taapsee featured in a video with comedy collective East India Comedy where she discussed the South's 'fascination with the navel.' She said: "On the first day, they started with a song, with this obsession over midriff. The director who launched me is known to show the sensuality of a woman by showing the midriff and throwing fruits and flowers on the midriff. I saw Sridevi's and other videos everyone had flowers and fruits thrown at them. When it was my turn, they threw a coconut at me. I don't know what is so sensuous about a coconut hitting my midriff."
Speaking to IANS, Taapsee Pannu said that 'obsession with a woman's body' is not restricted to the cinema of the South. "There's an obsession for a female's body everywhere. Do I need to name some songs in Bollywood that have some weird obsessions? It's not just there (in the south film industry). I was just sharing my experience because I have seen that in south, and that glamour bit has not happened with me in Bollywood yet," Taapsee said.
