Actress Taapsee Pannu has cut down on her Telugu projects for now as is currently doing just one film titled 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 spectacularly inviting as of now in Telugu. After Ghaazi, I don’t want to do anything inconsequential in any language, be it Tamil Telugu or Hindi,” he added.
Ghazi is an Indian bilingual Submarine based War film directed by debutant Sankalp. The film is being simultaneously made in Hindi and Telugu and will be dubbed in Tamil. It will be partially based on his own book Blue Fish. The film stars Rana Daggubati andTaapsee Pannu in the lead along with Kay Kay Menon, Satyadev Kancharana,Atul Kulkarni, Priyadarshi Pulikonda,Rahul Singh and Akshay Mittal. The film is based on the true incidents on the mysterious sinking of PNS Ghazi, a Pakistan Submarine by destroyerINS Rajput (D141) during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971.
Taapsee is extremely proud of ‘Ghazi’. “Though it is set in the 1970s we didn’t go around trying hard to recreate the era without clothes and music. 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 Tapsee.
She now looks forward to signing another Telugu film.
“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. 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.
