Taapsee Pannu shares first look picture of 'Looop Lapeta'
Taapsee Pannu on Tuesday took to social media to share the first look picture from her upcoming movie Looop Lapeta, introducing her onscreen character as "Savi." The film had been delayed for months last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The movie is an official remake of the 1998 German film Run Lola Run. Here are more details on this.
'How did I end up here?' Pannu shares cool caption
Pannu shared the picture writing, "Life mein kabhi kabhaar aisa time aata hai jab humein khud se yeh sawaal karna padta hai 'How did I end up here?' main bhi yahi soch rahi thi. No, not the s**t pot, but the s**t life! Hi, this is Savi and welcome on board a crazy ride." The movie is touted to be a comedy thriller.
Here is what Pannu posted
A brief about the movie
For the unversed, the original German film tells the story of a woman who needs to obtain 100,000 Deutsche Mark in 20 minutes to save her boyfriend's life. The film also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin alongside Pannu, and is being directed by Aakash Bhatia. The movie has been produced by Sony Picture India and Ellipsis Entertainment, and will be out this year, reports say.
This might be India's first movie to get COVID-19 insurance
Reports suggest Looop Lapeta could become one of the first Indian movies to get a COVID-19 special insurance. "Hypothetically, if a crew member tests positive, the entire unit will have to be quarantined, leading to the shoot being halted. If the film is covered under the insurance plan, the producers will not incur a financial loss stemming from the delay," producer Atul Kasbekar said.
Taapsee Pannu is on a roll!
Pannu is on a roll with a number of projects in the pipeline. Apart from Looop Lapeta, she has also started training for her role in cricketer Mithali Raj's biopic Shabaash Mithu. She also has the sports drama Rashmi Rocket in the pipeline. She will also soon star in the mystery thriller Haseen Dillruba, directed by Vinil Mathew and also starring Vikrant Massey.
