Taapsee used to be a software professional and pursued a career in modeling. It seemed quite unlikely that she would one day go on to be one of the top actresses in India. Taapsee began her acting career with the movie Jhummandi Naadam. That spark ignited her career as a professional actress and she went on to act in more notable movies such as Vastadu Naa Raju, Mr. Perfect, and Aadukalam. Her works in the movie Aadukalam earned her six National Film Awards at the 58th National Film Awards.
