Taapsee Pannu will soon be doing a crime thriller by Rahul Dholakia. He has finally found the lead for his film.

Rahul Dholakia had announced last year around mid about his next directorial project. According to the official announcent, Kriti Sanon was the lead earlier. The film was to be out around August last year, but because of shoot dates for other projects, Kriti stepped out of the film.

According to a source, “After Kriti decided to step out of the film, Rahul had approached Sara Ali Khan for the same role but even she couldn’t accommodate this film. Then, he offered the film to¬†Taapsee Pannu¬†and she loved the script. It’s a brilliantly written crime thriller that is very performance driven. The producer Sunir Kheterpal was looking for a powerhouse actor who also has a good bankability at the ticket windows. He has delivered a huge hit with Taapsee last year in Badla. So when he told her about this film, she agreed to do it.”

The film will be out next year. “Taapsee has said yes to it, but now, they have to figure out her dates. There are several films she has in hand – Haseen Dillruba, then Rashmi Rocket followed by Shabaash Mithu, Loop Lapeta, Sanjay Bhansali’s next production venture. With the Covid-19 effect on the industry, it remains to be seen when the situation can return to normalcy. It’s only after that Taapsee and her team will take a call on Rahul’s film. Meanwhile, the Raees director will finish another project under Farhan Akhtar’s banner.”
