Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu and filmmaker Anubhav Sinha last worked together in Mulk, which revolved around a Muslim family trying to reclaim lost honour after their kin joins a terrorist organisation. Now in a rather interesting turn of events, we hear that the two are all set to collaborate again for Thappad, a sociopolitical drama, inspired by true-life incidents. According to a report in a leading daily, the film is set to go on floors in August and will be shot in Delhi.
“Anubhav had decided on casting her while they were still shooting Mulk. It’s a female-oriented subject that defies narratives typecasting women. It questions the society and will deliver a poignant message on world domination by women. Taapsee’s protagonist will be a middle-class girl," the daily quoted a source close to the development as saying. Well, we cannot wait for the actor-director duo to give us another 'brave project'.
Meanwhile Anubhav, who has completed the shoot of Article 15, featuring Ayushmann Khurrana, recently headed to Rishikesh for the final touches on the Thappad script. “Anubhav is also producing the film and plans to release it on the International Women’s Day weekend in 2020. The film will feature a strong supporting cast. Readings and workshops will commence closer to the shooting date,” the source added.
On the work front, Taapsee is currently busy shooting for Saand Ki Aankh in Uttar Pradesh alongside Bhumi Pednekar.
