New Delhi [India], Mar. 20 (ANI): Known for her hard-hitting performances in films like 'PINK' and 'Baby', Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu, currently in midst of promoting her next 'Naam Shabana', believes that she has not reached that position yet where she can choose her roles.

Taapsee, who set off on her Bollywood journey with David Dhawan's 'Chashme Baddoor' in 2013, is now riding high with back-to-back action packed movies, to which the 'PINK' actress said, "Beggars can't be choosers but I was fortunate enough to work with such directors who offered me different kind of roles."

Talking exclusively to ANI about her choices, Taapsee shared, "Only thing I keep in my mind is, I shouldn't repeat my roles as after 'Baby', I got a long list of action films but I didn't wanted to do it as even I will get bored if I will continue doing the same thing again and again."

Sharing about her preferences in terms of success, the 'PINK' actress said, "I would want a Box Office success over critical acclamations. I genuinely believe if a film can hold the audiences to seats for two hours then it's a good film and it will get a Box-Office success."

Taapsee Pannu, who was promoting her upcoming film 'Naam Shabana' here, further shared, "BO collection is also important because then only I will get to be a part of more films and I would like all my films to do good at Box Office."

Written by Neeraj Panday and produced by Plan C Studios, Shivam Nair's directorial 'Naam Shabana' is all set to release on March 31.

' Naam Shabana' will shed light on the life of Shabana, Akshay Kumar's mostly silent but obedient junior officer in ' Baby'.

The ' PINK' actress will begin shooting for 'Judwaa 2' from next month, co-starring Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles. (ANI)
