Actress Taapsee Pannu says though she is still trying to come to terms with the success of Gameover, but with back to back hits, she is confident now, on the sidelines of a movie screening here in Mumbai.
Taapsee Pannu kicked off 2019 with Badla, also starring Amitabh Bachchan and followed it with thriller Gameover, which opened with critical and commercial success.
Talking about back to back hits, Taapsee said, “I am still trying to digesting things, I mean, I am still reeling over the fact that this has happened and the film is getting this much appreciation. I think, I will able to come to terms with it, once the film runs for another week or so, you know, get a little older. I am really happy, I kicked off this year with Badla and now Gameover is doing well, so I am feeling really confident this year.”
The makers of Article 15 organised a special screening of the film for Bollywood and television celebrities. Apart from the cast and crew, the screening saw Shah Rukh Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Tabu, Neena Gupta, Swara Bhasker, Vijay Verma, Taapsee Pannu and many more at the venue.
Taapsee Pannu has worked with Article 15 director Anubhav Sinha in Mulk and says she knew about the film during those days. She said, “I know or knew about Article 15, since Mulk days. Director Anubhav Sinha spoke about the film, we have had discussions and now I am looking forward to watch the film and see, how all that discussions have translated on to the screen”
Article 15 has kicked-off quite a ruckus with religious fringe groups, who are threatening filmmaker and stars with physical violence.
When asked about on-going controversy with the film, Taapsee said, “See a lot of people of say a lot of stuff, I mean people have said stuff about my films, so I am used to it by now. I cannot really say anything about it”
Next Taapsee Pannu will be seen sharing screen space with Bhumi Pednekar in Saand Ki Aankh, based on sharp shooting Olympians Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar. The film is directed by Tushar Hiranandani and is slated to release on Diwali 2019.
