Reports lately have been highlighting how much actors and actresses are paid but it’s come to light that Taapsee Pannu acted in a film free of charge.
In her recently released Telugu film ‘Anando Brahma’ (2017), Pannu did not take a fee as the budget was so small. However she believed in the film and her character so much so that she starred in the film free of charge. “I am today in a position where I have been saying that I don’t want to repeat things and want to do something different. And if this is a chance for me to do something different, I can’t step back just because I won’t get paid that much,” said the actress, as reported in the Times of India.
Instead of a fee Pannu struck a deal which meant she would take a share in the film’s profits if it did well. “I genuinely believed in the script and so thought to take this risk which is a biggest gamble of my career,” she continued.
This was a smart business move by the actress as the film went on to gain success at the box office.
The film is directed by Mahi Raghav and is a horror-comedy.
