'Run Lola Run' received critical acclaim and several accolades
For the unversed, Run Lola Run is an award-winning 1998 German thriller film, written and directed by Tom Tykwer.
Starring Franka Potente and Moritz Bleibtreu, the movie follows the story of a woman, desperate to obtain 100,000 Deutsche Mark (German currency) within a span of twenty minutes, to save her boyfriend's life.
The movie received global critical acclaim and several international accolades.
Can't wait to get started (with the film), Taapsee said
In a recent interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Taapsee expressed her excitement about the new project, saying, "I love how an iconic film like Run Lola Run has been adapted for the Indian milieu without losing its edge."
"It's been laced with amazingly cheeky straight-faced humour. It's cool in the truest sense of the word...I can't wait to get started," she added.
