Taapsee Pannu is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming film ‘Saand Ki Aankh’, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar. Pannu has been receiving a lot of criticism for her looks in the trailer of the film. It was only recently when Rangoli Chandel revealed that ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ was first offered to Kangana Ranaut. Now here’s what Taapsee has to say about doing a film that was turned down by the ‘Queen‘ actress.

As per Times of India report, Taapsee Pannu said, “The makers must have gone to Kangana for this role; actually, they went to half the industry as they received bizarre reasons. As far as I am concerned, the makers never approached me. When I got to know that such a film was being planned, I personally reached out to them. I have no shame in admitting that. I told them that I wanted to do it. Meanwhile, it took us two years to find the parallel female lead.”

Taapsee and Kangana have been indulging in the cold war off late.

Talking about the film, ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ is based on the real-life stories of sharpshooters- Prakashi and Chandro Tomar. The film is being helmed by Tushar Hiranandani and it is produced by Anurag Kashyap. The film is slated to hit the screens on the occasion of Diwali i.e 25th October 2019.
