Game Over is the new thriller that the very versatile Tapsee Pannu has completed in Telugu. As she waits for its release she can’t help feeling a sense of gratitude and joy at her return to Telugu cinema.
“Telugu and Tamil cinema are where I started my career. I am so happy to be back doing a bi-lingual in Tamil and Telugu,” says Tapsee.
Game Over which releases in April features Tapsee in an unique role. “It was physically the most difficult role to play. For 70 per cent of the film I had to be confined to a wheelchair. To be so restricted in my movements was an unbearable ordeal for me. But then that’s the whole challenge and thrill of being an actor. One gets to constantly do things that one may not do in real life, play characters that open up new doors in one’s psyche.”
Tapsee is most impressed by what has been achieved in Game Over. “The director Ashwin Saravanan has brought a unique perspective to the thriller. This film is in the genre of The House On The Hill but entirely original.”
Tapsee says she feels at home in Telugu cinema. “I make sure that I do at least one film out there every year. I enjoy coming back to Telugu cinema. It feels like home. Game Over revolves around my character. And it feels great to be playing the hero in a Telugu film.”...
