Tapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu, the Indian model turned actress was born on the 1st of August, 1987 to a Punjabi Sikh background. Throughout the years she has appeared in various Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Telegufilms. She pursued her education from the well knownMata Jai Kaur Public School situated in Delhi. Following this, she graduated in the field of computer science from the prestigious Guru TeghBahadur Institute of Technology situated in the capital city, New Delhi and soon after obtaining her graduation degree she started working in the domain of software development. One of her contributions in the field of software development was an application made for iPhone by the name of fontswap.

Next up she started modelling before becoming an actress. She got the opportunity to showcase her modelling skills in the talent show hosted by Channel [V] called ?Get Gorgeous?. During the time she had been modelling, Taapsee Pannu appeared in various television advertisements and at the Femina Miss India contest in 2008, she had also been bestowed with many titles such as ?Pantaloons Femina Miss Fresh Face? title as well as the ?Safi Femina Miss Beautiful Skin? title. Some of the brands which she used to endorse after she had become a modelwereVardhman, World Gold Council, Havells, Airtel, Dabur, Tata Docomo, Pantaloon, Standard Chartered Bank, Motorola, PVR Cinemas, Coca-Cola, Reliance Trends, UniStyle Image and Red FM.Aprt from advertisements, Taapsee Pannu had also made her place on the front cover pages of magazines like MaaStars and Just For Women. She had this eagerness within her to gain recognition and proper merit through modelling, which was not happening much then. Soon enough, she gave up modelling and decided to go for films.

In the year 2010, she made her debut in B Town with the film JhummandiNaadam, a romantic musical directed byK.Raghavendra Rao and starring Taapsee Pannu along with Manoj Manchu, Suman and Mohan Babu. Even before this film got released, Taapsee got another three offers in the Telegu film industry.

Her very first Tamil film was a film called Aadukalam, directed by Vetrimaran. Here, she enacted the character of an Anglo Indian girl who falls in love with Dhanush, who plays the role of a guy from a village. At the 58th National Film Award ceremony, this film went on to grab 6 National Film Awards and Taapsee Pannu?s performance in the film was highly appreciated by all. In the year 2011, she shared the screen space with Vishnu Manchu in the Telegu film VastaduNaaRaju directed by HemantMadhukar. Next up, she starred in the SohanSeenulal directed Malayalam film called Doubles (2011) starring Nadia Moidu, Mammootty, SaijuKurup, Suresh, Salim Kumar, Y. G. Mahendra, Avinash, SurajVenjaramoodu, AnoopChandran and Taapsee Pannu herself.

That same year, she did a small role in the Dasaradh directed Mr. Perfect where he starred alongside Kajal Aggarwal and Prabhas. Again in 2011, she appeared in the high budget flick Veera directed by Ramesh Verma but this film received only moderate reviews. Her next project was the Tamil film titled VandhaanVendraan directed by R. Kannan. This film did not create much of an impact at the box office. After VandhaanVendraan, she signed up for the Krishna Vamsi directed Mogudu in which she received lots of appreciation for her performance in this film.

. She will also be appearing in her first Bollywood flick with the David Dhawan directed ChashmeBuddoor (2013), starring Siddhart, Ali Zafar, Divyendu Sharma and Taapsee Pannu herself.
