Taapsee Pannu to be shot in thriller
‘Rashmi Rocket’, ‘Looop Lapeta’ and ‘Shabaash Mithu’. What’s next for Taapsee Pannu? ETimes has it that if all goes well, it will be a thriller whose storyline has thrilled Taapsee so much that she took hardly any time to give her nod of approval.
The story goes that Taapsee had seen Ajay Bahl‘s ‘Section 375’ and the two chatted over the phone after that, almost promising each other that they shall work together in the near future. One day, Bahl got a call from producers Echelon and Outsiders asking if he would like to direct a thriller that they are planning. Bahl was told upfront that Taapsee was already on board. Bahl too liked the idea and soon started on the pre-production work.
We hear the Taapsee-starrer will go on floors in Nainital in mid-June and the makers plan to complete it in one schedule.
ETimes herewith also has it that Gulshan Devayiah is being considered for an integral part, probably even as the leading man. The modalities are fast being worked out and the balance cast is yet to be decided.
A source says, “Bahl feels Taapsee is the right choice for the role and eagerly looking forward to working with her.”
Bahl, however, remained unavailable for comment.
Meanwhile, we were the first to tell you that the shoot of ‘Shabaash Mithu’was shifted from Mumbai to Hyderabad. The latest on ‘Shabaash Mithu’ is that the cast and crew of this Taapsee film has already reached Hyderabad (shifted from Mumbai due to the ongoing lockdown) and the cameras on the sets will start rolling very soon.
