According to a source, actress Taapsee Pannu, who is last remembered for her role in Akshay Kumar starrer BABY, has been roped in Shoojit Sircar's next untitled thriller starring Amitabh Bachchan, which also marks the Bollywood directorial debut of National Award winning Bengali film-maker Anirudha Roy Chowdhury. Interestingly, Anirudha Roy Chowdhury acted in Shoojit Sircar's PIKU early this year (which starred Amitabh Bachchan).
The untitled film is said to revolve around a social cause and might be shot entirely in Delhi, which wouldn't be a problem for the actress, as the Delhi girl in real life will probably be playing so on-screen.
Not only that, Taapsee is said to be playing a young, independent girl who helps the protagonist.
It is believed that Taapsee is yet to read the whole script, but it'll surely be interesting to see how well the film comes out with the pair (if things are official), and more so because it is to be seen if the actress will be able to make her presence felt with Big B, like she did in Akshay Kumar's movie BABY.
