Taapsee Pannu is riding high with one film after the other. After having recently wrapped up her Telugu film, Taapsee had just days before been in the news for her role as a hockey player in Soorma. The film in which she’s paired opposite Diljit Dosanjh has Taapsee be playing an athlete in the game of sports. The actress personally too enjoys and follows several forms of sport and has a deeper personal connect to hockey owing to her father having actually played the sport when she was younger. For Soorma Taapsee spent a considerable amount of time prepping to get her training right to essay the role on screen.
Now the actress has just begun the first schedule of her next, Manmarziyaan with Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan. Interestingly the actress will again be seen playing the sport of hockey in the film. Her training from Soorma is coming rather handy for the actress for this new role.
Speaking about it, Taapsee said, “It’s very rare n uncanny that a sport I learned for a specific film carried forward in my immediate next. I learned hockey for Soorma but ended up using the skills in Manmarziya as well. Unlike soorma, I don’t play a professional hockey player in Manmarziyan, instead, I play a sports shop owner who sells sports goods and has learned hockey from her parents. The good part is that we saved the preparation time because of that”.
