After playing the victim in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's PINK, Taapsee Pannu will be seen once again in the courtroom drama but this time as a lawyer in Anubhav Sinha’s MULK. Anubhav’s Last release was TUM BIN 2.
The actress unveiled the teaser of MULK on a micro-blogging site saying, 'MULK Kaagaz Ke Nakhshe Ki Lakeeron Se Nahi Bantta' - Aarti Mohammed
The teaser of the film starts with a shot of Rishi Kapoor who plays Murad Ali Mohammed, opens the door but what he sees that media is already questioning him because he and his family has been accused of betraying the country. So he shuts the door and the teaser continues to follow each of the characters starting from Taapsee Pannu who plays Aarti Mohammed, Prateik Babbar, Manoj Pahwa, Ashutosh Rana, Rajat Kapoor and Neena Gupta. What we witness towards the end is Taapsee gives a powerful line about the country saying,"Ek mulk kagaz pe nakshon ke lakeeron se nahi batta, sir. Mulk batta hai rang se, bhasha se, dharam se, zaat se"
This will be second time where taapsee will be seen in a courtroom drama. She was earlier seen in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's PINK where superstar Amitabh Bachchan played the lawyer defending her case. It will be interesting to see Tapsee Pannu picking interesting and varied characters playing a vulnerable victim in PINK, a fearless RAW agent in NAAM SHABANA, a glam doll in JUDWAA 2, plays hockey in SOORMA and now a lawyer in MULK.
Produced by Deepak Mukut and Anubhav Sinha and directed by Anubhav Sinha, MULK is set to release on August 3, 2018.
