When Taapsee Pannu said she'd never date an actor: ‘There can be only one star in the relationship and that’s me’

The actor turned 35 on August 1 and has developed a reputation for not mincing her words.

Years ago, when she was still new--and relatively less stable--in Bollywood, Taapsee had declared she would never date an actor.

Taapsee is currently dating badminton player-turned-coach Mathias Boe.

Mathias and Taapsee have been dating for a few years but she spoke publicly about him only this year.

On her relationship she said: It’s a very, very respectful relationship. I am very surprised. That’s the first time ever my father has not picked out a problem in something that I have done or chosen. First and hopefully not the last time.

Taapsee was most recently seen in Mithali Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu. The Srijit Mukherji film received mixed reviews from critics but failed to work at the box office.

The actor will be next seen in Anurag Kashyap’s sci-fi thriller Dobaaraa. She has several other films in the pipeline, including Alien, Blurr, Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? And Dunki, her first collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan.
