Actor Taapsee Pannu is known for her sense of humour and it was aptly proven when she shut down a person who asked her to speak in Hindi. During a discussion at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa in 2019, a man asked her, “Taapsee thoda Hindi mein bhi bolo kyunki Hindi film aap karti ho (Speak in Hindi also as you do Hindi films).”

She replied, “Mai toh pura Hindi mein baat karsakti hun. Mereko yeh nahi pata ki..accha sabko Hindi samjah m aayegi? (I can have the entire conversation in Hindi. I don’t know…does everyone know Hindi here?)” and the people shouted “no”.

The man persisted, “She is a Hindi actress,” to which Taapsee said, “I’m a South Indian actress also. Tamil, Telugu mein baat karoon? (Should I speak in Tamil and Telegu?)”. The audience erupted in cheers and applause as she added with a smile, “I want to get to the maximum people”.

The Thappad actor later tweeted, “Wow! In hindsight, it was actually a conversation on ‘fire’! Thank you @iffigoa and @maddymatters. My debut there will surely be a memorable one for a lot of us I guess. See you next year :).”
