Badla Builds A Unique Chemistry Between Mr Bachchan & Me, Says Tapsee Pannu



After the  much-lauded Pink, the  fascinating Tapsee Pannu is back with the mighty Bachchan  in  Badla. If  the trailer  of this Sujoy Ghosh thriller  is anything  to go by, then the  unconventional Bachchan-Tapsee combo has another winner on  hand.

Tapsee is  thrilled to bits to be back with  Big B, “When we  did Pink  together  I  was  of course in awe  of him . I had to quickly get rid  of the awe  on camera to work like co-stars.  I don’t think he  has ever teamed  up with  a leading lady my age  as  his heroine, and we are not paired  in any conventional romantic way.”

Tapsee  said she hoped and prayed she would get another chance  after Pink to be unconventionally  paired  with  Mr Bachchan. “I never  thought Badla would give us that  opportunity. It again pairs us together in roles that are not  usually  available to  actors his age and my age when working  together. I am delighted  to say that working a second time as  the lead opposite Mr Bachchan has been as rewarding as  unique and as  intriguing as  the  first time.”

In Badla Tapsee plays a woman whose  mind is hard to  mine.  “You never  know what she’s thinking.  Everyone in  the  film holds back information, not telling the entire truth. My character  is no exception.”

Tapsee says  Mr Bachchan made the  second  project greatly rewarding for her. “I was definitely  more  relaxed this time during Badla. During Pink I gradually discovered how much fun Mr Bachchan was. This time I was  ready from beforehand to be  a friend rather than an awestuck  costars. We  didn’t have to get to know  each other.”

Interestingly Tapsee has worked with both father and son Bachchan. “Yes ,isn’t that something!  I didManmarziyan with Abhishek and then  Badla  with Mr Bachchan. Shall I tell you  something? I found MrBachchan to be more  fun to work with than Abhishek.”

Tapsee is  confident about her unique career choices. “I always  knew the path I wanted to follow was  not the  conventional. Now that I have succeeded in  forging my own destiny I am more confident  of  my choices.”

Not that Tapsee is averse  to mainstream experiences. “I did  Judwaa 2. Didn’t I? And I had  a lot of fun doing that as well.Come  to think  of it, from Mr Amitabh Bachchan to Varun Dhawan, that’s quite  a range  of leading men  for me.”
