When Hyderabad boxer Likhitha Battini was looking for financial assistance to get training to qualify for Olympics, Taapsee Pannu rushed to her help and raised funds.
According to sources, the ‘Aadukalam’ and ‘Vandhaan Vendraan’ actress joined hands with an NGO and ensured that the required funds reached the boxer. Battini is said to have touched and moved by the gesture.
Meanwhile, Taapsee realised her dream last month by buying a house in Mumbai, it is to be recalled. “I always thought I will buy a house in Mumbai only if I receive good response in Hindi film industry. It’s a huge investment so I didn’t want to take a risk if things don’t turn out good for me here,” she said.
“Fortunately, everything turned out to be better than what you expected, and I am really happy with the response and specially with the kind of films I am getting here. That’s the space I always wanted to be in. So, this calls for having my own space in this expensive city. Hope my new residence turns out to be lucky for me,” she added.
