A lot of actors and actresses bag roles in movies because someone recommends their name to the director/producer. This is not necessarily wrong or inferior unless the person in question is being cast for reasons that have nothing to do with their talent or credentials.
Actress Taapsee Pannu is happy that she has bagged a role in a big-ticket Bollywood film without someone recommending her name. Director Rajkumar Hirani’s 'Dunki' is the one. Taapsee still can't believe that she is going to be a part of a Shah Rukh Khan film!
"Nobody picked up the phone for a recommendation. I got the film only because someone liked I what did," the 'Anando Brahma' and 'Thappad' actress has been quoted as saying by Bollywood media.
The 'Mishan Impossible' actress has indirectly confirmed that there exists a strong 'recommendation culture' in the film industry, much as most actors won't confess it openly. She has outed an embarrassing secret, actually.
