Actress Taapsee Pannu has cut down on her Telugu projects for now as she is currently playing a role in Ghaazi.
“Right now, unfortunately, I am doing only one Telugu film, and that’s Ghaazi. It’s a film both my co-star Rana Daggubati and I are very proud of,” says Tapsee, adding that she’s on the look-out for another Telugu project.
“Unfortunately, I haven’t been offered anything spectacular in Telugu. After Ghaazi, I don’t want to do anything inconsequential in any language, be it Tamil, Telugu or Hindi,” he added.
Taapsee is extremely proud of Ghaazi which is based in the 1970s. “Though it is set in the 1970s we don’t go around trying hard to recreate the era. It is a very important film on an important issue,” she said.
The release date of the film is now being worked out.
“We have to find a Friday when both the Hindi and Telugu versions of the film can be released simultaneously. We cannot risk putting out one or the other first,” said Taapsee.
“When I did my career’s first film Jummandi Nadam in 2010 it was in Telugu. And I had a completely de-glamourised role in the film. I was so young and raw. I was born in Delhi and now I can speak Telugu and dub my own lines. It’s been 6 years since I started in Telugu. I am still very much in touch with my roots,” she said.
Even in Hindi cinema, Taapsee has come a long way from Chashme Buddoor to Pink. But she is still in touch with her Chashme Budoor team.
“David Uncle (director David Dhawan) who directed me in Chashme Buddoor is still in touch with me. He rings me up to inquire about how my career is doing which new films I’ve signed. I think it’s very sweet and touching,” he said. – CINEWS
