Her next film is Rashmi Rocket where she plays an athlete and, in an interview today, Taapsee reveals what was the shocking thing she learnt whilst doing the film.
Taapsee Pannu gave an interview to a leading daily and spoke about how she came to know about gender-testing in sports. This gender-testing practice at times hinders many women athletes’ careers in sports. The actress says that she started doing her research on the same while the writers continued their work. She says it is shocking that a woman is asked to prove her womanhood in order to achieve her dreams. She further adds that it’s bizarre that there are rules that determine whether an athlete is woman enough or not to go ahead.
