Taapsee is known for doing unconventional role. She has also in her kitty ‘Shabaash Mithu’ where she is playing the role of cricketer Mithali Raj.

Talking about her choice of films, she recently told IANS, “How I stand for gender equality and women’s right has nothing to do with success, but everything to do with upbringing. I was never told that I am any less because I am a girl. I have a sister and, whether it is education, jobs or any other choice we made, in our house my parents never questioned it because we are girls. So the choice of films that I make is a reflection of my mindset. My audience sees my belief in my choices.”
