Priyanshu in awe of Taapsee
After shooting with her over three months, Priyanshu Painyuli can safely say he is in awe of how beautifully Taapsee Pannu has transformed herself for the character of Rashmi in Rashmi Rocket. Chiseled to perfection, Taapsee took to sprinting with full gusto nailing her races while at shoot in Ranchi.
As the team is on the final schedule in Kutch right now, Priyanshu who shot to fame with projects like Bhavesh Joshi and Extraction, has started training with Taapsee as a mark of support for her co-star. Stationed in the region for two weeks, Priyanshu felt it was important to learn sprinting from his co-star as a memorabilia of sorts from the film. While he is aware that he is far from the fitness levels she achieved for the film, it’s a fitness he wants to learn and take to seriously.
He says, “I have always found myself drawn to more natural ways of staying fit. Sprinting is one of the most foolproof ways of being fit. I am so glad that I am a part of this film and I am grateful to be around someone who is as motivated as Taapsee. She is extremely disciplined with her workout regime and meals, alike. Lately I have started accompanying her to training. While I lack in her expertise, she has helped me learn the basics of sprinting. I am inclined towards learning it well and making it a part of my own regimen. This film has changed my perspective in many ways but the most significant change is simply the approach to kick off a new workout style.”
