The buzz had it that the remake of the acclaimed German-language thriller titled Run Lola Run is being considered for the Hindi audience. With fans of the Oscar-nominated 1998 release thriller starring Franka Potente as Savi and Moritz Bleibtreu as Mannie excited to watch the adrenaline rush recreated for the Indian audience, the Taapsee Pannu, in an interview with a leading daily confirmed her participation as the lead actress. Titled Looop Lapeta, the film will be directed by ad filmmaker Aakash Bhatia and stars Tahir Raj Bhasin as Mannie, Savi's boyfriend. The actress who is on an award-winning spree for her performance in Saand Ki Aankh told during the conversation that she is excited to begin shooting for Run Lola Run's Hindi remake. Taapsee further assured that the audience will experience the same thrill and remain on the edge-of-their-seats in Looop Lapeta as well.
"Savi is a quirky, insane addition to my repertoire. I love how an iconic film like Run Lola Run has been adapted for the Indian milieu without losing its edge. More excitingly, it’s been laced with amazingly cheeky straight-faced humour. It’s cool in the truest sense of the word and as bold thematically as it is stylistically. I can’t wait to get started," Taapsee told during the interview.
