In this exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Taapsee Pannu spoke about doing back-to-back sports films. She said, “Aisa time aahi gaya tha iss film ke shooting ke dauran, jahan main bhoolne wali thi main actress hoon – back to back main itna sports ki film karne lagi hoon. Par woh isliye kyunki sports mera second character hai in life. Main bachpan se hi bahut active rahi hoon sports mein – galli wale pithu se lekar badminton, volleyball sab try kiya hai.” (Transl: There was a time during the shoot, where I almost forgot that I am an actress. I have done so many back-to-back sports films. May be that is because sports like my second character in life. I have been very active in sports since childhood. I have tried everything from galli sports like seven stones to badminton, and volleyball.)

She elaborated, “It’s a very organic second personality transition for me to become a sports star onscreen. So the the only effort is required to learn the sports. In terms of personality, I don’t have to work on it much. ” She went on to add, “I have enjoyed sports films so much since childhood, that’s why I guess people keep approaching me for sports biopics. But now I have decided that I won’t be doing any more sports films for the time being because I am almost forgetting that I am an actor.”

Speaking of Shabaash Mithu, the film is directed by Srijit Mukherjee and it is slated to release on July 15, 2022.
