“I’ve always been on a lookout to be part of the stories I want to see myself as an audience,” says the Bollywood actress whose last film in the South was the Telugu super-hit film Anando Brahma in 2017
Taapsee Pannu who had been rocking South cinema before she made her debut in Bollywood has always been connected to doing films there. But while her Bollywood films had kept her busy the past three years, she’s now making a comeback to Tollywood with an action packed Telugu film Mishan Impossible. The last film that she had starred in Telugu was the 2017 hit Anando Brahma.
The film is being bankrolled by one of Tollywood’s most popular production houses Matinee Entertainment, which is known for its high-budget films with star heroes, as well as their content-based films on small to medium range budgets. Taapsee’s film will be production No 8 of the banner and will be helmed by acclaimed director Swaroop RSJ of Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya fame.
A film with a very distinctive subject, the theme poster that was released earlier garnered a tremendous response.
Says an insider, “Taapsee is making her comeback to Tollywood with Mishan Impossible where she plays the lead role. The actress was on a lookout for a perfect script for her comeback in Telugu and she finally found one in Mishan Impossible. Taapsee has joined the team today (July 6). Welcoming the actress on to the sets, the team has released a working still where Taapsee can be seen with a broken hand. She looks anxious, as she watches something on laptop.
Taapsee is very much excited to be part of the project. She says, “In last 7 years I’ve always been on a lookout to be part of the stories I want to see myself as an audience. Movies that I will spend my time and money on. And Mishan Impossible is one of them. Impressive storyline and a good team like Matinee backing it is most important to me when I choose a film. I want to reaffirm the trust the audience has in me for choosing quality films and I’m doing exactly that by becoming a part of a movie like this.”
Niranjan Reddy and Anvesh Reddy are producing the film, while N M Pasha is the Associate Producer. The film has cinematography handled by Deepak Yeragara and music scored by Mark K Robin. Ravi Teja Girijala is the editor.
