Here are 10 quotes by Taapsee Pannu that will motivate you to live your life on your own terms, be badass and honest to yourself.
“Either I choose to behave or live a life of someone else, or I choose to be myself and live the life the way I want.”
“There is no way everyone will approve of what you’re wearing. So just do what makes you happy.”
“There are so many fish in the ocean. I had to be a different kind of fish.”
“I am an outsider. I was never offered the kind of roles where I could play the glamorous diva, because there are already so many of them doing it - and doing it well. So I had to bring to the table much more than just looking good.”
“I don’t regret a single decision of mine. Even if I made mistakes, they helped me evolve.”
“Truth is, I’m less heroine and more the ‘hero’ in my story and for some that’s a bitter pill to swallow, but then that’s tough… because I’m not going anywhere.”
“We have to jump into the competition and prove ourselves every moment.”
“I never regret or sit back and think that I shouldn’t have said something. There are a lot of people who tell me that you shouldn’t say this or that or should keep quiet, and I really think that I can either be true to my conscience or can live a fake life by staying quiet.”
“I always find a reason to be happy before I sleep. For me, happiness is a choice that is in your hands.”
“As long as I get to do the kind of work I want to do, I am okay with being a Z-lister.”
