“Tabahi to machai usne. Not only he broke the internet he broke my self-confidence. How will I find it back? Hindustan mein har mard isi baat se pareshaan hoke Ranveer Singh pe attack kar raha hai (Every man in India is frustrated due to this reason which is why they are attacking Ranveer Singh.”
Further in the interview, when Siddharth encouraged Anurag Kashyap to do a similar naked shoot, Taapsee Pannu said that a "horror show" was about to be brewing. To which, Anurag joked that Taapsee is insecure about him as he has bigger boobs than her. He stated:
“Ye waise hi darti hai (She is insecure). She has a complex by me because I have bigger boobs than her."
