New Delhi, Aug 25 (ANI): After rising to fame with Neeraj Pandey's action-thriller 'Baby', Tapsee Pannu is all set with her next thriller flick 'PINK,' where she portrays a molestation-victim.

Though the character was extremely relatable for Tapsee, she credits producer Shoojit Sircar for bringing out the best in her during the difficult scenes.

" Shoojit Sircar is extremely good at psyching out an actor. He really brain washed me in order to get me in the situation's mood. He would talk to me for half an hour and more in my vanity-van to help me in enacting a particular scene, to get me in the mood of it and make me think like the character before the shoot," the 29-year-old actress said in a candid conversation with ANI.

Further explaining the difficulties she faced while filming 'PINK', the actress said, "Being molested was the only thing which was very difficult to digest or absorb because no matter how hard I try, I can never feel the exact way a molestation victim really feels."

"But I have tried to be as real as possible and I hope have done justice to those scenes. I am not a trained actor, so I really had to put myself in the situation and then act," she added.

The 'Chashme Baddoor' actress further during the interview cleared that the film, which speaks about women empowerment, does not highlight 'rape' or Delhi as a 'rape capital'.

"The film is not about rape or Delhi. But Delhi was a perfect place for the story as it was in news since long for being an unsafe place for girls. The film tackles a general social perspective but you have to watch the film on September 16 for that," she concluded.

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, ' PINK' also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang and Angad Bedi. (ANI)
