Taapsee Pannu started her journey from the South Indian film industry and has cemented her space in the Hindi film industry with multiple releases and commercial success. With films like Pink, Mulk and Badla, the actress has carved a niche for herself with a body of work that speaks volumes about the kind of challenges she likes to pick when it comes to her craft. Even with her upcoming release, Game Over, the Manmarziyaan star is trying to push the envelope and deliver another note-worthy performance. At least, the trailer promised so.
We recently sat down with the actress to chat about her character and we got more than what we bargained for. When asked about the reason, apart from a seemingly tight script and plot, for doing the film, she quipped, "I do one South film every year." After being probed further that she is amongst the few actors who still go down South after breaking ground in B-town, Taapsee added, "That’s where I started and now I know the language decently well. There’s no reason for me to not do it. I am, in fact, thankful and grateful to them for making me learn what cinema is all about. So, there’s no way I’m going to leave South (Indian films). I just want to make sure that the films I do are worth their time and attention. This film was good for me to do because it was going to be made in both Telegu and Tamil, both the south languages I work in. It might not be a conventional film to look at but once you’re in the theatre, I guarantee, you won't be disappointed." Watch the video here.
If you're not in the know, Game Over which was first made in Telegu and Tamil was dubbed in Hindi later. It has Taapsee play the part of a game designer, who is trying to recover from a scarring incident. She suffers from ‘anniversary reaction’ wherein the trauma increases around the date of her accident. Speaking about her character in the film, Taapsee had told PTI, “With the co-writer of the film, Kaavya Ramkumar, I could understand the logic behind all these effects and reactions and how to use them naturally in my performance. It needs to be controlled to the right proportion to make it look believable."
Apart from Hindi, the film will release in Telugu and Tamil as well. Presented by Anurag Kashyap, Game Over is directed by Ashwin Saravanan and is slated for release on June 14.
