Lola needs to run again
Updated: May 24
If there is one actress who was overtly stressed with her film projects after the lockdown and perhaps a bit before that as well as been Taapsee Pannu. Taapsee who apart from being the flagbearer for women centric films has also been the athlete of the eyar for Bollywood – The actress who has films like Rashmi Rocket, Loop Lapeta and Shabhash Mithu – three films which need to see her on top of her fitness game as much as she needs to lend credence to the characters along with her histrionics -was shooting round the clock before the lockdown took place. The tough part is that she needs to now do it all over again when the lockdown opens. “Taapsee had planned her schedules in such a way that after she finished the shoot of her thriller Haseen Dilruba with Vikrant Massey she has to alternate between her two ambitious and yet different films – Rashmi Rocket as well as Loop Lapeta – the remake of Run Lola Run – both these films have her as a runner and she thought that it would be a great idea to do a double shift – something that she has never done in her career thus far. She had a limited period of time when she had to wrap the films before the monsoons came pouring down as well. But now she has had a break which she perhaps deserved – but once the lockdown is out, she has to be back on her toes,” says our industry source. Earlier when Taapsee was shooting for Haseen Dilruba, she was waking up at 5 am to train for Rashmi Rocket and then do a 12-hour-shift for Haseen Dilruba. She was also in the midst of promoting her last release Thappad and then go to Haridwar to shoot again. And now Lola is upset because she has to run all over again!
