After the much-lauded Pink, the fascinating Taapsee Pannu is back with the mighty Amitabh Bachchan in Badla.
If the trailer of this Sujoy Ghosh thriller is anything to go by, then the unconventional Bachchan-Tapsee combo has another winner on hand.
Tapsee is thrilled to bits to be back with Big B, “When we did Pink together, I was, of course, in awe of him. I had to quickly get rid of the awe on camera to work like co-stars. I don’t think he has ever teamed up with a leading lady my age as his heroine, and we are not paired in a conventional romantic way.”
The actress says that Mr Bachchan made the second project greatly rewarding for her.
“I was definitely more relaxed. During Pink, I discovered how much fun Mr Bachchan is and this time I was ready beforehand to be a friend rather than an awestruck co-star.”
Interestingly, Taapsee has worked with both father and son Bachchan.
“Yes, isn’t that something! I did Manmarziyaan with Abhishek and then Badla with Mr Bachchan. Shall I tell you something? I found Mr Bachchan to be more fun to work with than Abhishek.” Taapsee is confident about her unique career choices. “I always knew the path I wanted to follow was not conventional. Now that I have succeeded in forging my own destiny, I am more confident about my choices.”
