Taapsee Pannu, known for taking up challenging and stereotype breaking roles, has been making the headlines these days with her upcoming film Saand Ki Aankh where she is seen stepping into the shoes of octogenarian sharpshooter Prakashi Tomar. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar as Chandro Tomar and together they lift the air pistol as sharpshooter dadis. In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, the actress got candid about her role in the film, her transformation and how she overcame the difficulties involved in the process of getting her character right.

Tapsee convincingly stepped into the role of a woman in her sixties but the actress put in a lot of hard work for her to ace the role. Taapsee opened up about her transformation for the film and said that it has been one of the most challenging films in her career. Having said that, she shared that even if the film does not work in her favour, she's glad that she worked hard for it and give it her best. The actress revealed that she was far away from hitting the bull's eye or shooting before the film. However, she disclosed that shooting was comparatively easier than adapting to the village lifestyle.

Going by the character that Taapsee portrayed, she had to blend in the rural culture and learn to do house chores like milking of the cows, making butter and cutting the hay. As her character owned family business of making bricks, she learnt to pile up a set of bricks and balance it on her head as she walked in the fields. Taapsee also faced a little difficulty getting the dialect right. She had to bridge the gap between khadi boli and Hindi, which is a crossover between Hindi and Haryanvi. Even though she got her training in Mumbai, her pronunciation improved only as she headed to Johri and interacted with the locals.

Taapsee revealed that her constant practice and effort to mingle with the locals and residents of the place has always helped her. Be it South films or Saand Ki Aankh, which takes her character to Uttar Pradesh, interaction with the netizens has been her key to adapt to her role. The film is all set to release across cinema halls on October 25 and we can't wait to see Taapsee and Bhumi set new standards with their incredible performance.
