Taapsee Pannu seems to be on fire right now. It was just earlier this month that the actress talked about the rampant sexism of the Indian film industry and how she was asked to slash her price because of her male co-stars. Further elaborating on the challenges and unjust treatment faced by her in the industry, the Thappad star also talked about how she was replaced in a film just coz her co-actor's wife didn't want her to work with him. Frankly, it takes real courage to open about the industry's misogyny right when your career is beginning to soar up.
And speaking of her career, things are pretty much in motion for the actress on the work front. She just finished the first schedule for Rashmi Rocket and is now all set to start her work on Loop Lapeta. Earlier today, the actress took to social media to share the news with her friends and also shared a still from the film. And while everyone is all praises for Taapsee's dedication to her work and how she is juggling projects with utmost efficiency, it is her quadriceps that are actually stealing the show right now.
Taapsee plays an athlete in the film and has thus been training hard to look the part. She has also mentioned in the caption about the tough schedule and how it was no less than a "boot camp." "The boot camp like schedule 1 gets done, now running towards the lola family. Going to have a very chill cool stopover with the looopers. The best unwinding I could’ve asked for!
This is going to be ‘crazy’ fun," Taapsee wrote on Instagram. Here's the picture:
Here are some pictures from Taapsee's training for the film:
Glorious as it is, the picture has been garnering special praise from Taapsee's friends from the industry as they admire her dedication and hard work. Here's what they have to say:
Loop Lapeta producer Atul Kasbekar has also commented on the pic. While he has admired Taapsee for the incredible transformation, he has also cracked a joke about how the Rashmi Rocket makers have done a great job by preparing her for all the running she needs to do in Loop Lapeta.
All this while, the actress has been posting pictures from her training sessions for the film. That said, while we were prepared to see an all transformed Taapsee, the results have actually blown our minds. She absolutely looks like a trained athlete here. Well, talk about commitment!
