No time for Bollywood: Taapsee

The pretty Punjabi girl seems to be on a high after the release of her Hindi debut flick, Chashme Buddoor. The extensive publicity for the film, directed by David Dhawan, has brought her wide exposure and Taapsee is still in a daze. “The response to my Hindi debut has been too good to believe,” says the Delhi-based actor. But looks like Taapsee prefers to take things slow and is in no hurry to sign on the dotted line for her next Hindi flick.
You may wonder why, since it’s usually an actor’s dream to reach wider audiences by riding the Bollywood bandwagon. But Taapsee says, “I haven’t signed on anything new in Hindi yet. At present, I have my hands full with Southern projects up to June.”
The actor has just arrived in the city for the next schedule of director Vishnuvardhan’s film. As actor Ajith, who plays the lead role in the film, is shooting for another film directed by Siruthai Siva in Hyderabad, Taapsee is said to be here to shoot her portions with actor Arya, the other hero in the film. Taapsee will also shoot for Raghava Lawrence’s Muni 3 while she is in Chennai for 20 days.
Taapsee has just finished shooting for her Telugu film Sahasam, directed by Chandrasekar Yeleti. She has teamed up with Gopichand for the second time in the film after Mogudu. “The post production work is going on and the film is slated for release in two months,” she says. Her other Telugu film Shadow, where Taapsee pairs with actor Venkatesh, is due for release on April 26.
While Taapsee has carved a niche for herself in Telugu cinema, she has no doubt that the Ajith film and Muni 3 will give her a firm footing in K-town. With so much on her plate down South, it’s no wonder that she’s in no hurry to hop onto the Mumbai Express.
