Taapsee Pannu lived with the revolver dadis before shooting for Saand Ki Aankh!

There is no doubt that Taapsee Pannu is one of the finest actors of her generation. The powerhouse performer always goes the extra mile, when it comes to getting under the skin of her character. For her film Saand Ki Aankh, produced by Reliance Entertainment, Anurag Kashyap, Nidhi Parmar & Chalk n Cheese Films and directed by Tushar Hiranandani, Taapsee spent a lot of time with Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, on whom the film is based.

During the one month shoot of the film in Meerut, the talented actress also stayed at Chandro’s house for a month. In fact, she had got so close to the two legends, that she would have lunch at Prakashi’s house and dinner Chandro’s house!

Saand Ki Aankh follows the inspiring story of the world’s oldest sharpshooters, Chandro & Prakashi fondly known as the “Revolver Dadis”. Not only did Taapsee spend a week getting to know them but also stayed in their original home in the interiors of UP, to better understand the kind of lives they lead and interact with their family and neighbors.
