Had More Scenes in Badla Than Amitabh Bachchan Yet it's Called His Film, Says Taapsee Pannu
Taapsee Pannu blamed the Bollywood industry's male dominance for not recognizing her role in Badla.

Actress Taapsee Pannu feels Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan has been unduly given more credit than her for their recent hit, Badla.

"Even when I do films like 'Badla', I had more working days or scenes so to say than Mr. Bachchan. He was the hero of the film, I was the antagonist. But the antagonist has more presence in the film than the protagonist. But eventually the film releases, they call it an Amitabh Bachchan film."

She added, "Yes, when I raise my voice and say I've done almost equal if not more, that's when people recognized and started taking my name because it's such a male-dominated industry, they don't even realize that I might have done more work actually. It was called Sir's film, it won't be called a female film regardless of the fact that I have more scenes, it will be called an Amitabh Bachchan film and the credit will go there," Taapsee said on Neha Dhupia's show, according to a report in pinkvilla.com
