Taapsee Pannu who is revelling under the accolades for her portrayal as Priya Suryavanshi in Neeraj Pandey’s Baby will soon start shooting for Agra Ka Daabra, produced by Shoojit Sircar. Pannu who had displayed her acting chops in Baby as she warded off her opponent Sushant Singh in the film with well aimed kicks and killer punches will now get into an absolutely different space with
director Amit Roy’s flick. The story revolves around Pannu and Ayushmann Khurrana— a guide who goes on to becomes a huge star.

“I will be playing a coy Muslim girl from UP in the film. It is going to be a huge challenge as I will have to transform myself completely.
Working on my body language and learning how to talk slowly and softly with nazakat will be some of the things I will have to work
on. Ayushmann and I will start attending workshops for the film in April as the shooting has now been pushed from February to
June,” she said.

Pannu who has worked in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films and made her Hindi debut in David Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor, is looking
forward to the release of Roy’s earlier film Running that wrapped up a while back. She will be romancing Amit Sadh in the film.

My character in Shaadi… is a complete contrast to the one I will be playing in Agra.., but I am very attached to the film as the character is very close to me. Like me, she too hails from a Punjabi background so I could give my personal touch to the script, character, dialogues etc. I hope the film releases soon as I want everyone to see it,” said the software engineer-turned model- cum actress who is throughly enjoying her Bollywood stint. The actor’s upcoming

Tamil film is the horror comedy Munni 3: Ganga, the third in the Munni franchise. Although she would like to continue doing South films with her performances earning her a lot of appreciation, she wants to focus on Bollywood. “I have had a smooth transition despite not having any filmi connections so now I want to concentrate on Hindi films. There are several other offers that I have received so I should be finalising more projects soon.”
