In 2018, Taapsee Pannu won hearts with her exemplary performance of a lawyer in Anubhav Sinha's Mulk.
The movie was touted to be one of her best till date.
And after a year, the Soorma actress will be collaborating with Anubhav again, this time for another socio-political drama titled, Thappad.
Reportedly, the movie will hit the floors in August this year.
According to media reports, Anubhav is ecstatic to collaborate with Taapsee again. In fact, her casting was finalized while she was still working with Anubhav for Mulk, a source close to the director stated. Thappad is likely to release on International Women's Day, 2020.
In this gritty, female-oriented drama, Taapsee will be seen playing the role of a middle-class girl, who does something extraordinary, said the media reports.
"It is a female-oriented subject that defies narratives typecasting women. It questions society and will deliver a poignant message on world domination by women. Taapsee's protagonist will be a middle-class girl," the source was quoted as saying.
Taapsee is currently working on Anurag Kashyap's Saand Ki Aankh which narrates the real-life story of octogenarian shooters.
The movie revolves around two elderly women, who became professional shooters at a very later stage in their lives, somewhere in their 60s.
Apart from Taapsee, the movie also features Dum Laga Ke Haisha actor Bhumi Pednekar, and Gangaajal director Prakash Jha.
Talking about the movie, Taapsee stated that her character in Saand Ki Aankh was both physically and mentally challenging.
However, getting the Haryanvi accent right was the toughest part for the actress.
"They're Haryanvi but based out of UP. There is an interesting crossover of Haryanvi and Hindi of UP. But we had to keep it simple for the audiences to understand," Taapsee added.
