Looks like Taapsee may have bagged her next project. According to an entertainment portal, Taapsee Pannu has been approached by Shivam Nair, who previously directed her in ‘Naam Shabana’, for the biopic of India’s first female horse jockey Rupa Singh. The actress is likely to play the protagonist in the film based on the life of Rupa Singh.
A Source said, “Taapsee has been approached by her Naam Shabana director Shivam Nair for one movie he’s been planning for some time. It’s based on the life of India’s first female horse jockey Rupa Singh. Shivam has got the rights to her life and is currently working on the script. He has bounced the idea off to Taapsee who has shown interest. But a bound script is yet to be locked and narration is pending. But it’s an inspirational story about a woman in a profession that’s hugely considered a man’s world. Similarly, Taapsee has also maintained her dignity and power in a rather patriarchial set up that we have in the industry. So she completely suits the bill.”
Moreover, Taapsee will soon be seen in ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ and ‘Mission Mangal’.
