Taapsee Pannu is currently on cloud nine after she won a Filmfare award for her performance in Saand Ki Aankh on Saturday. The actress received tons of congratulatory messages from her fans and other celebs. Producer Tanuj Garg, who has produced films like Tumhari Sulu and Lootera, also congratulated and wrote, ''Congrats to the powerhouse @taapsee, humaare #Bollywood ki female Ayushmann Khurrana. #SaandKiAankh #bestactress''.
The Pink star was quick to reply why she couldn’t have been addressed as 'Bollywood’s first Taapsee Pannu' instead. “What about calling me bollywood ki pehli Taapsee Pannu?,'' she wrote. To Taapsee’s response, Tanuj replied, “Woh toh ho hi! Inimitable, singular, distinctive!''

Her comment led to a flurry of 'befitting reply' comments. ''Yaaaas! Queen. Your success doesn’t need to always be equated to that of a man. You’re your own person and this is just amazing! Congratulations,'' wrote one person in reply to Taapsee, while several others said that her reply was 'befitting'.

Thank you for being the best Prakashi to my Chandro. To our undying sisterhood my bebe #BebeAndJiji forever.''

On the work front, Taapsee will be next seen in Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad. The movie also features Ratna Pathak Shah, Manav Kaul, Dia Mirza, Tanvi Azmi, and Ram Kapoor. Talking about the film, Taapsee had earlier said, ''Working with Anubhav sir is always an enriching experience and he encourages one to push the envelope. When he discussed Thappad, I immediately decided this was a film I had to do. It has a thought provoking storyline and deals with a subject which must be addressed in our society. To put it in perspective, looking at what we aim to convey with our film, I can say Thappad is this year’s Pink.''
Apart from Thappad, Taapsee also has sports-drama Shabaash Mithu. It stars the actor as Indian cricketer Mithali Raj.
