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 Screwvalla’s RSVP Movies and Mango People Media Network.

Sharing the motion poster of Rashmi Rocket, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar wrote on Twitter, “This ROCKET is set for her next MISSION and she’s off to the tracks! Presenting a glimpse of @taapsee in and as #RashmiRocket. @MrAkvarious @RonnieScrewvala @RSVPMovies @iammangopeople #NehaAnand #PranjalKhandhdiya Music for the motion poster: @LesleLewis” 

 

 

Talking about the film in an interview to the DNA, Taapsee said, “This story instantly hit the right chord when I heard the idea. It’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 I’ve done in every other genre. But this time, it’s going to be an out-and-out athlete’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.”

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.
