Here’s What Taapsee Pannu Has To Say About Her Tamil Film ‘Game Over’!


She burst into the scene as the girl with a twinkle in her eyes in Vetrimaaran’s ‘Aadukulam’ and went on to feature in various other films. Since 2016, Taapsee Pannu has been making waves in the Hindi, Tamil and Telugu film industry, with films such as ‘Pink’, ‘Mulk’, ‘Manmarziyaan’, ‘Naam Shabana’, and so many others establishing her as one of the sought-after actresses of today.

She has signed a Tamil project after a long, long time and is rather excited about it, shooting for it in Chennai for the next few weeks. Titled ‘Game Over’, the poster that released recently shows her bound in a wheelchair with a splattering of red all over the poster. It looks quirky and intriguing, quite unlike her other ventures.

Speaking about it, Taapsee says she wanted a totally different film to come her way. “If they offer me something I haven’t done before, I choose them. If I keep playing roles in my comfort zone, the audience will get bored of it. After ‘Kanchana 2’, I got so many offers to act in a horror film! I kept saying no to them until ‘Anando Brahma’ came my way. As for ‘Game Over’, I was hoping it wasn’t another horror film but producer Shashikanth told me that it’s a thriller and I was like, ‘Thank god!’. I’ll finish ‘Game Over’ by November,” she says.

She has a lot of future projects in the pipeline, including two completely interesting Bollywood projects.

“I have ‘Badla’ where I play a self-made businesswoman from Scotland. Releasing on Women’s Day, and it’s a Sujoy Ghosh film. It’s not exactly a female-centric film but yes, a woman is at the forefront of it. I am also starting my next one in February, a biopic of Shooter Dadi. It will be one of the most challenging roles to pull off and I have taken it as a risk for me,” she narrates.

When asked if she will be starring in the Hindi version of ‘U-Turn’, she doesn’t deny the reports. “I have been approached a couple of times for the Hindi version of ‘U-Turn’. It’s still in a very nascent stage, but I am yet to see the film (Kannada, Tamil, Telugu versions) to take a call.”

‘Game Over’ is a  bilingual project directed by Ashwin Saravanan of ‘Maya’ and ‘Iravaakaalam’ fame, the latter touted to release soon. Ron Yohann is the music composer and the project is bankrolled by Y Not Studios of ‘Vikram Vedha’ fame.
