Video: Taapsee Pannu introduces us to Rumi, her ‘Manmarziyaan’ character
Actors are meant to get into the skin of the character and portray their role even if they don’t identify with it. It is very rare that they get to play a role they can say is similar to them in real and Taapsee Pannu did manage to get such a role with ‘Manmarziyaan’ which is directed by Anurag Kashyap.
“Meet Yours Truly …. in more than one ways#Rumi of #Manmarziyaan,” Taapsee wrote sharing a video of hers on Twitter.
“It is very difficult to define Rumi, I will not get into that,” Taapsee says in the beginning of the video which is followed by glimpses of her in the film.
Taapsee may not have defined Rumi but definitely had something to say about her. “She is someone that you cannot do without but when you are with her, she is the most difficult person to be with.”
Her co-stars in the film, Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal feel that Taapsee is just like Rumi. “Taapsee doesn’t even need to act that she’s going to be Rumi, it’s just her,” says Abhishek. “Vo Rumi hai,” says Vicky, adding, “Jitni pagal Rumi hai utni hi pagal Taapsee hai.”
It was Anurag’s idea that Taapsee would sport red hair in the film and Taapsee jokes that somewhere, the reason for her being cast in the film is because of her hair.
Taapsee concludes, “When someone like Anurag Kashyap believes that you are the perfect bet and he would want you and no one else, I think any actor would feel at the top of the world.”
