After playing a lawyer in Anubhav Sinha’s 2018 film ‘Mulk’, Taapsee Pannu is reuniting with the filmmaker for another sociopolitical drama, which is inspired by true-life incidents. Titled ‘Thappad’, the film will go on the floors in late August and will be shot in Delhi.
To a source close to the development, the director actress duo was keen on collaborating again for another ‘brave project’. “Anubhav had decided on casting her while they were still shooting ‘Mulk’. It’s a female-oriented subject that defies narratives typecasting women. It questions the society and will deliver a poignant message on world domination by women. Taapsee’s protagonist will be a middle-class girl,” the source informed.’Mulk’, which revolves around a Muslim family trying to reclaim lost honour after their kin joins a terrorist organisation, was nominated in six categories at the recently concluded 64 th Filmfare Awards, including one for Taapsee in the Critics Best Actor in Leading Role (Female). Anubhav bagged the award for Best Original Story.
