Taapsee said, “Clarity toj mujhe 100% abhi bhi hur ek film ki nahi, par itna pata hai ki iske baad Loop Lapeta aani chahiye… issi saal, hopefully. (I still don’t have a 100% clarity about each and every film of mine, but I know this much that Looop Lapeta should arrive after Rashmi Rocket, hopefully this year itself.) Uske baad Dobaaraa agle saal, phir Shabaash Mithu, phir Blurr, phir Woh Ladki Hai Kahan, jo main start karoongi shoot karna. Toh yeh sab agle saal aane chahiye. (After that Dobaaraa next year, then Shabaash Mithu, then Blurr, then Woh Ladki Hai Kahan, which I should begin shooting for. All these should come next year.)”.

Loop Lapeta is the official Hindi remake of the German film Run Lola Run. Taapsee Pannu will be seen playing the lead character of Savi in the film. Along with Taapsee, Tahir Raj Bhasin will be also seen playing a crucial role of Satya in the film.

Earlier, while talking about Looop Lapeta and how the team prepared for the film, Tahir Raj Bhasin revealed, “Looop Lapeta is an adrenaline rush. At its core it’s a romantic comedy set within a single day’s high paced and very stylish chase. It is the Indian adaptation of the German film Run Lola Run. The film is about the pandemonium when the romantic bond between the lead pair, Satya and Savi, is put to the test when one is tasked to rescue the other. Prepping for the film was unique because most of it was done over video calls during the first lockdown. My first meeting with Taapsee happened over zoom when we were interviewed during the lockdown about how we felt about being part of this iconic adaptation.”
After 2018’s ‘Manmarziyaan’ and the biographical drama ‘Saand Ki Aankh,’ Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap will team up again for Dobaara, a sci-fi thriller. Starring Taapsee Pannu, Saswata Chatterjee, and Pavail Gupta, Doobarraa is written by Nihit Bhave and produced by Balaji films. Talking about the film, director Anurag said, “Our vision with Dobaaraa is to bring a fresh, new story to the audience and I am very excited for it. This will be my third collaboration with Taapsee and this time the attempt is to bring an interesting new take on thrillers.” Talking about this film Taapsee said, “This is going to be one of its kind thriller. I have been very lucky with the thriller genre in my career so far, and I always look forward to pushing the envelope under this genre”. On the other hand, Anurag added, “vision with Dobaaraa is to bring a fresh, new story to the audience.”
Mithila Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu is one of the most awaited films from Taapsee’s kitty. The film was earlier directed by Rahul Dholakia but now the direction is under Srijit Mukherji. Shabaash Mithu is produced by Ajit Andhare. Taapsee was getting trained by former cricketer Nooshin Al Khadeer, while talking about Nooshin’s training Taapsee said “Nooshin is training me. She is Mithali’s friend and an ex-cricketer. She used to play for Team India and is now a full-time, professional coach. The training has just started. Though I cannot say much at this stage, I can know it will take a lot of skill and focus out of me to play Mithali Raj perfectly.” Mithali Raj’s pal Nooshin is a former Indian cricket player. Nooshin is instructing Taapsee not only on Mithali’s legendary style of cricket but also on the finer points of imitating the former captain of the Indian women’s national cricket team’s demeanour.
