Taapsee to play self-defence instructor in short film
"Pink" and "Naam Shabana" actress Taapsee Pannu will be seen playing a self-defence instructor in an upcoming short film, says its director and producer Kapil Verma.

The story of the film revolves around the relationship between two siblings. Vicky Arora plays the brother in the film.

Verma says he had a great time shooting the film with Taapsee, who went through a training session to get the physical nuances of her character right.

"I narrated the script to her in Mauritius on the sets of 'Judwaa 2' and at the end of the narration, she asked me 'When would you like to shoot it?' She trained very hard for the film. We had a great time shooting, it was fun and quite intense too."

Asked why he chose Taapsee for the film, Verma said: "I had written this script around two years ago. I had watched Taapsee's film 'Pink' and worked with her in 'Naam Shabana'. I knew then that she would be perfect for the part."

Though the title of the short film is yet to be decided, the cast and crew finished its four-day shoot in Mumbai.

Taapsee Pannu defends bikini post with a punch

 
Actress Taapsee Pannu, known for her strong and powerful roles on the silver screen, on Wednesday defended herself over social media in a quirky way after being slammed by a follower for wearing a bikini in her upcoming film "Judwaa 2".

Taapsee shared two photographs of herself on Twitter to promote new song "Aa toh sahi". Alongside the images, the "Pink" star wrote: "When you are against the tide, it's you who needs to stand up for yourself… But don't forget the smile. ‘Judwaa 2'. ‘Aa Toh Sahi'."

However, one Twitter user didn't seem to like her in a bikini, and wrote a post in Hindi.

"In our country, we have freedom of expression, so why don't you remove the remaining clothes also. Your brother must be feeling proud of you after watching this."

In response to that, Taapsee wrote: "Sorry, Bhai hai nahi varna pakka puch ke bataati. Abhi ke liye behen ka answer chalega (Sorry I don't have a brother, otherwise I would've asked him and told you. But for now, a sister's reply will work)?"

Taapsee will next be seen in "Judwaa 2", directed by David Dhawan. It also features Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film will release on September 29.
