This year has been a good year for Taapsee after giving back-to-back hit films like NAAM SHABANA, PINK, JUDWAA2 she has started shooting for her next, MULK with Anubhav Sinha. And if this just wasn’t enough she has started prepping for her role in Shaad Ali's next in which she is essaying the role of hockey player, for which she would be sharing the screen space with Diljit Dosanjh.
Taapsee Pannu is learning the nuances of the sport. In fact Taapsee has been a sports person and is a fitness freak in her daily life as well.
The fitness bug runs in the family. Taapsee’s father played hockey when he was young and Taapsee had only seen pictures of him playing the game, and she is using that as an inspiration for herself for giving the best shot.
Taapsee got emotional after seeing the pics of her father playing hockey as she never thought she would recreate that after 20 years.
Speaking about the same Taapsee said, “I have seen pictures of my father who played hockey representing Delhi University. Never thought at that point I will ever hold a hockey stick. I have always loved sports in general but never tried hockey. It’s so coincidental that eventually when I got to play a sportsperson on screen I got to play a hockey player. I am having a great time learning the sport and I’m sure this will be one film my dad will be very keen to watch.”
Apparently the film is believed to be based on the story of Sandeep Singh, the coveted hockey player of India and the ex-captain.
