Hyderabad: Taapsee Pannu is the latest actress to join the list of T-town actresses who have worked with famous names in Bollywood. All thanks to her upcoming movie with Akshay Kumar.
Despite her debut film in B-town, Chashme Baddoor, failing to rake in the moolah, the actress has managed to bag a film opposite Akshay Kumar.
Confirming the news, Taapsee tweeted early on Sunday, Early morning best time to reveal the news I was so eager to tell u all. My next Hindi movie after runningshaadi.com has been finalised. While her first tweet didn’t give it away, the second tweet did. It read, I can now check mark my bucket list option of working in an action movie with @akshaykumar and that too under Neeraj Pandey’s direction.
The shoot will start in May and the movie will be shot in Nepal and Istanbul. In the yet-to-be titled film, both Akshay Kumar and Taapsee are said to play the roles of undercover agents.
The movie will have two heroines, while Taapsee has been confirmed, Neeraj Pandey (who earlier worked with Akshay Kumar in Special 26) is on the lookout for another heroine to play Akshay’s wife in the film.
It is said that Pranitha Subhash of Attarintiki Daredi fame had also auditioned for the role, but was rejected because of her lack of fluency in Hindi. Apart from this project, Taapsee will also be seen in another Bollywood film Running Shaadi.com and a Tamil film with Dhanush in which she plays a negative role.
Despite rumours of Taapsee shifting base to B-town, the actress has denied them all and has maintained that she will continue to work down South too.
