Taapsee Pannu, who has been carving her niche in Bollywood for the past 5 years, has finally arrived. After back to back phenomenal performances in Pink and Naam Shabana, the actress isn’t afraid of experimenting with her roles and has gone on to star in a complete comedy like Judwaa 2. This year, the talented actress will be seen in three drastically different films.
The Baby actress is now gearing for the release of her next, Anurag Kashyap’s romantic drama, Manmarziyaan, which will see her opposite Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal, playing the quintessential Punjabi kudi. This will be the first time Taapsee is acting with Abhishek Bachchan, who has worked on Pink with Senior Bachchan aka Amitabh Bachchan and will soon be seen sharing screen space with him in Sujoy Ghosh‘s Badla. We can’t help but wonder how different (or similar?) it is to act with two such dynamic men and thankfully, Taapsee is here to clear the air.
“Bachchan Sir and Abhishek have a very different approach to acting, although their mannerisms, posture, body language and baritone are quite similar,” the actress commented. “I still remember I had texted Sir once when I saw Abhishek sitting exactly like him, with the same posture. I just couldn’t help myself, it was that uncanny!” she joked.
Manmarziyaan is directed by Anurag Kashyap. It is presented by Eros International and Aanand L Rai and Phantom Films. It is slated to release on September 14.
