Mumbai, April 1 -- Taapsee Pannu, who made her debut with Chashme Baddoor (2013), has decided to cut down on films in the south. The actor has apparently made this decision in a bid to concentrate on her Bollywood career.
However, recently, when she was approached by two of her producer-friends for a couple of films down south, she decided to take them up, just on the basis of the scripts.
"Two of her closest friends wanted to sign her for their movies. Because she liked the scripts so much, she has signed the films, and has somehow squeezed in the time for their shoots," says a source close to the actor.
Meanwhile, the actor, who garnered critical appreciation for her performance in director Neeraj Pandey's Baby, is reportedly in talks with him for his future projects. She is also in the process of signing several other Bollywood films.
This is why Taapsee doesn't want to be away from Mumbai for a long time. "The producers are arranging the schedules of the productions as per Taapsee's commitments in Bollywood," adds the source.
When contacted, Taapsee confirmed the development, saying, "I wasn't doing south Indian films as my time was required in Mumbai. But when my friends came to me with such brilliant scripts, I couldn't help but sign them. So I will now be juggling between the industries, trying to finish all the work."
