“I ran behind some films and some have just thankfully fallen in my lap. This (Loop Lapeta) being the latter I couldn’t be more grateful to these guys and the luck line in my palm. From entering the narration with the idea to say No, to leaving it with an immediate Yes, thanks to these gentlemen for hanging by a solid script and concept for years and being more sure of me being Savi than I was,” Taapsee wrote alongside a picture of herself with Aayush Maheshwari and Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg of Ellipsis Entertainment.
Run Lola Run starred Franka Potente and Moritz Bleibtreu. Taapsee steps into the shoes of Franka and her character is named Savi. In an earlier post about the film, Taapsee had written: “When you are in between 2 perspectives, in middle of wired up chaos and what you do in the frame is going to matter… Chin up, feet up and just focus! Coz not everybody gets this privilege. (Also coz you are getting clicked by the lens man doubling up as producer).”
Looop Lapeta is slated to release later this year.
