Taapsee Pannu: When critics tell you're in good form, it's frightening
Reported By 08 Apr 2020
Before the coronavirus pandemic came along, Taapsee Pannu aimed for a jam-packed 2020. The actress had only 10 days of work left on the romantic-thriller of Vinil Matthew, 'Haseen Dillruba,' and the Tamil spythriller, 'Jana Gana Mana,' kick-starting four movies 'Rashmi Rocket,' 'Looop Lapeta,' the supernatural thriller of Anurag Kashyap, and the biopic of Mithali Raj. She broke into laughing as the closure was declared, rather than having a nervous breakdown. "I've been getting worried about the dates of juggling. Now, it's all going to have to be rejusted, and for no reason of mine, "she chuckles.
Describing the ensuing confusion as "karma that has come to bite the human race" and "nature setting down its foot," Taapsee points out that she would have plenty of stories to tell to the next generation. As far as work goes, she's not only fretting like the film frat, the epidemic has reached every job and person. "When everyday life returns, we'll all start at the same spot, nobody's going to get a head start," she philosophises.Since January, the actress has been under intensive preparation to play an athlete in two back-to-back sports dramas, 'Shabash Mithu' and 'Rashmi Rocket,' and must sustain the fitness standard. "Sustaining the preparation over a long period of time would be difficult. My diet always needs to be coordinated, which is almost difficult right now. Yeah, I'm on a plateau, trying to maintain shape and shape yeah that when I get back to work it doesn't seem like I'm beginning again, "says Taapsee, who flew down from Haridwar to Mumbai to separate herself from her 59-year-old mother and 65-year-old father, who are with her sister in Delhi.
