Taapsee Pannu is currently shooting for Anurag Kashyap’s Doobaara. Apart from this, she has an array of impressive projects in the pipeline like Rashmi Rocket, Looop Lapeta, Shabaash Mithu among others. When it comes to her performance, Taapsee has time and again proved that she is a brilliant actor. Now recently, in an interview, her Rashmi Rocket co-star Priyanshu Painyuli has hailed the actor. He has also spoken about his experience of working with Taapsee and more. Priyanshu was seen in Extraction and in other OTT shows.

In Rashmi Rocket, Priyanshu will essay the role of an army officer, who is also Taapsee’s husband and a sports coach. Talking about his character in the film, he said during the line of duty, his character meets Rashmi, played by Taapsee, in Gujarat and discovers her capabilities as an athlete. “While the film dwells on their relationship, it also mirrors the lives of women athletes in India. It’s an important story and it was needed to be told,” the actor added. 

Painyuli further explained that is not just an entertainment drama with thrill. He also said that issues covered in this film are very important and have not yet been touched upon. Talking about his experience working with Taapsee, he said he was excited to work with Taapsee. “She’s one of the most versatile actors we have. I am hugely impressed with her determination to nail the nuances of the role,” he stated.

Taapsee and Priyanshu started prepping for their roles since January 2020, but they only met for the first time when the film rolled out in Pune towards the end of the year. Priyanshu said that they could not spend much time on workshops before the shoot owing to the lockdown. He further recalled that when he met Taapsee for the first time, her reaction was, ‘Ah! Finally, mil gaye!’ “It was a fun start to a great schedule. The best part about her is that she is fiercely dedicated, sporty and competitive,” added Priyanshu.

The actor also said that Taapsee transformed dramatically, and literally became an athlete for the film in no time. Looking at her quick transformation, Priyanshu felt inspired as a co-star.
