After earning rave reviews for her high-flying stunts in ‘Naam Shabana’, Taapsee Pannu is set to slip into the role of an undercover agent once again. She is rumoured to have been cast for the cinematic adaptation of Shiv Aroor’s bestseller, ‘Operation Jinnah’. The book, chronicling events in Kashmir, Delhi and New York, is based on a Kashmiri woman being abducted by Pakistani terrorists.
As per a Mid-day report, “A major film studio has approached Aroor as well as the publisher to secure rights to the story. It has also reached out to Taapsee to play the lead. She was the top contender for the part since she has done two action films. She has verbally committed to the project and is yet to sign the papers.”
Interestingly, a Twitter user recently pointed out that the model on Aroor’s book cover bears an uncanny resemblance to Taapsee. The actress responded by dropping a hint: “Since the poster is ready, can we start making the movie now?.”
