Taapsee Pannu is the new Alice in Wonderland
After kicking some ass with her spy act in 'Naam Shabana' and showcasing her glam avatar in 'Judwaa 2', Taapsee Pannu will soon be seen in the romcom 'Dil Juunglee'.
Dil Juunglee is an upcoming Indian romantic comedy film written and directed by Aleya Sen. It stars Taapsee Pannu, Saqib Saleem, Abhilash Thapliyal, Nidhi Singh and Srishti Shrivastava and is scheduled to release on 16 February 2018.
While the film is set in Delhi and London, the actress reveals that her character is unlike the Dilli ki kudi that she is in reality.
Taapsee added, "The only common aspect is that both my character Koroli Nair and I hail from the Capital. The best way to describe her, whose father is a multi-millionaire, is that she is like Alice in Wonderland. She thinks of the world as a perfect place and then her bubble bursts." The self-confessed street-smart Delhi girl adds, "Koroli represents an aspect of Delhi that I don't relate to, but I am aware of. It was a challenge for me to be convincing in the role of this girl who has never been given a reality check, as my audience has seen me in my tough avatar in films like 'Pink' and 'Naam Shabana."'
Talking about the Valentine's Day weekend release, she says, "It's not just a love story but also about how friends influence your love life.
Romantic comedies are the safest as well as the trickiest genre to dabble in, because all love stories are more or less the same and there is always a conflict which can be internal or external. The toughest part is how one makes it new each time. Also, the leads have to have chemistry because the audience has to root for them from the beginning."
