Taapsee Pannu, much hailed for her performance in the Tamil-Telugu bilingual Game Over, will next act in the Bollywood film Rashmi Rocket in which she plays a sprinter. Reports are that she plays a village belle named Rashmi and is nicknamed Rocket for her athletic abilities. The film revolves around how the heroine overcomes her hurdles to become a professional athlete.
The film is directed by Akarsh Khurana and written by Tamil director Nanda Periyasamy. It is bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvallaâ€™s RSVP Movies and Mango People Media Network.

Talking about the film in an interview to the DNA, Taapsee said, â€śThis story instantly hit the right chord when I heard the idea. Itâ€™s one of those few films I was waiting to be developed into a script for me to do. Funnily, I have been made to run in almost every film Iâ€™ve done in every other genre. But this time, itâ€™s going to be an out-and-out athleteâ€™s tale. What excited me the most was the human drama that unfolds in her life, which makes it much more than a regular story of an athlete.â€ť
Taapsee currently has the Bollywood film Tadka in the post-production stage. Directed by Shriya Saran, the film has a bevy of stars in the cast including Nana Patekar, Shriya Saran, Ali Fazal, apart from Taapsee Pannu.
