Taapsee Pannu had delivered a box office hit last year with Sujoy Ghosh’s directorial, Badla. The film had Amitabh Bachchan as a co-star. Badla was produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. Taapsee was indeed rubbing shoulders with the best of Bollywood.
Now, there are rumours that SRK and Taapsee are will be acting together in a movie.
A source close to both the stars shared, “Shah Rukh Khan might have stayed away from films in the last two years, but he and his team have already locked several projects that he plans to produce under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment. While two-three of them will have him him starring in them, includign Rajkumar Hirani’s next, there are many others that he plans to bankroll with other actors from the industry. There’s a social comedy that they have been putting together and the team has internally decided to approach Taapsee for the same. It’s a quirky concept driven film and they wanted someone to shoulder it and given how Taapsee led Badla, the Red Chillies team plan to take it to her.” We reached out to the production house, but they didn’t respond to our query.
On the work front, Taapsee is working on a South film opposite Vijay Setupathi. Haseen Dillruba, Loop Lapeta, Rashmi Rocket, Shabash Mithu and Anurag Kashyap’s next movie.
