Taapsee Pannu recently won the Filmfare Award for her performance in Saand Ki Aankh, along with her co-star, Bhumi Pednekar. The actress was on cloud nine, naturally having won the coveted and well-deserved honour for her work.

Over the weekend, congratulatory messages poured in from fans as well as well-wishers from within the industry. Tumhari Sulu producer Tanuj Garg was one of the first ones to send across his wishes for Taapsee, in addition to referring to her as the “female Ayushmann Khurrana of Bollywood.”

However, does appreciation necessarily mean equating a woman to a man? It isn’t, and Taapsee made sure to let that be known.

Yassss! *Virtual applause* for the woman of the hour! You go, girl!
