Taapsee Pannu says that her break in the Hindi film industry was not intentional and starting with the single “Tum Ho Toh Lagta Hai“, she’ll be seen in back-to-back projects getting her “scared” of being overexposed.
Taapsee’s last film was Baby opposite Akshay Kumar, which had released in January last year. It is after more than a year that Taapsee is seen on the screen for Hindi audiences as she features in the single “Tum Ho Toh Lagta Hai“, sung by Shaan and composed by Amaal Malik. She is cast opposite Saqib Saleem in the video.
At the launch of the song Tum Ho Toh Lagta Hai, Taapsee was asked about her ‘break’ in the industry. She said,
I was doing films that you’ll see in the festive season. It has just begun; this (single) is just the trailer for me for this year. There’s going to be ‘Pink’, there is ‘Tadka’ and there are a couple of projects coming up.
I have been shooting non-stop, it’s just that the shooting has been a bit delayed. You will see me, just that there shouldn’t be an overdose, that’s what I am really scared of.
While Taapsee will share screen space opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Shoojit Sircar’s production Pink, in Tadka she will act opposite Nana Patekar, Shriya Saran and Ali Fazal among others.
Though Taapsee was not seen in Hindi films post-Baby, she was seen in films down south such as Kanchana 2 and Vai Raja Vai.
