Taapsee Pannu is riding high on positive reviews from the critics and the audience for her recently released film titled Rashmi Rocket. The actress managed to win hearts for her stellar performance. In the sports drama, Taapsee plays the role of Rashmi Virah Chibber, an athlete. She underwent a massive physical transformation for the film too. The actress had even shared pictures from her training sessions on Instagram. In an exclusive interview with us, Taapsee Pannu revealed the secret to her athlete body in Rashmi Rocket.
Taapsee was asked to share about the process she went through for the training of Rashmi Rocket. She says that she will sit peacefully and write a book on the fitness process. Pannu adds, “Kuch alag se karna hota hai jab, ki people take up notice of something that has been done specially, uske liye extra mehnat lagti hai. (When you want to do something different, that people take up notice of something that has been done specially, then for that you need to do some hard work.)”
The actress adds, “Mere liye sirf ek cheez extra difficult isliye thi because I didn’t have the liberty to sit at home and only prep. Jo main karna chahti thi. (For me, this was the only thing that was difficult because I didn’t have the liberty to sit at home and only prep. I wanted to do that.)”
Taapsee continues, “But the situation is such in the industry for a female actor that we can’t do only one film at a time, for a year. So, us wajah (reason) se, I would have just loved to sit at home for a year and only train for this film. That would have been ideal. But I had to double it up with kisi na kisi (for some other) film ki shooting.”
Pannu shares, “Maine us tarah ki koi picture saath mein shoot nahi jiske liye body type ki requirement ho. (I didn’t shoot for any such film for which there was a body type requirement).” She adds, “I was shooting for Haseen Dillruba, a South film of mine, jahape body type ki requirement as such koi specific thi nahi. (I was shooting for Haseen Dillruba, a South film of mine, where the body type requirement was not so specific.)”
Taapsee Pannu says, “So, I was training for this everyday morning. I used to get up at five, and from six to eight I used to train. And then 9 AM to 9 PM shoot for a film and then come and sleep at 10 and then again wake up at 5. So I did that for a few months, for two films, while I was prepping for this.)”
Meanwhile, on the work front, the actress has the film Shaabash Mitthu, Looop Lapeta, Anurag Kashyap’s thriller movie and Blurr in her kitty.
