The talented Taapsee Pannu is a versatile actress and is known for perfecting every character she portrays. Recently Tapsee was announced as the lead star cast for the Rajkumar Hirani upcoming megaproject ‘Dunki’ where she will be seen co-starring next to Bollywood King Shah Rukh Khan.
While talking about how excited Tapsee Pannu is to work in Raju Hirani’s passion project Dunki, the actress reveals “Each time I went for the meeting with Raju sir, or reading or any conversation I had with him on phone, every time I came back home, she asked me, ‘Tu abhi bhi hai na film mein?’ My parents, however, didn’t give me any noticeable reaction, also maybe they’ve understood that till the time it happens, let’s not celebrate too early.”
It was in 2020 when the rumor was first flown in the air that Hirani is considering Pannu for his next and she considered it to be “yet another rumor, which will make you happy for a while, but nothing’s going to happen”. But, a call from Hirani changed everything for her. “He said, ‘Now that it’s already out, let me officially call you and say that I’m doing this film, and I’d love you to be a part of it.”
The actress continued “Raju sir was so excited about the whole project and the way it was coming together that he, on the first call itself, started narrating to me the first two scenes,” tells Pannu, who has shot for almost 10 days on the film.
‘Dunki’ produced and directed by Hirani, is co-produced by Gauri Khan, and stars SRK and Tapsee Pannu in pivotal roles.
