Taapse Pannu, who currently working for her new Telugu-Tamil movie, Game Over, spoke about how she ended up doing Tamil movies and about one filmmaker she wanted to work with.

As a girl from Delhi, how did you land up in a Tamil or Telugu film?

“I have been very crazily adventurous with my life and age has now made me sober down a little bit. But I have been insanely crazy. I love doing something which is not expected and obviously I have this fascination. This fascination took me to a place near central Delhi somewhere in the middle of forest area which was supposed to have some weird history and haunted and all that, and I just wanted to explore.”

“I am that person who loves to go somewhere where nobody has. I did get Hindi offers but those were like with no, literally no names. I didn’t hear about those guys before nor did Google mention much. I Googled about the guys who offered films me in South and they were really big names.”

One filmmaker, you really want to work with?

“I want to be a Mani Ratnam heroine once. Very rarely I get to be a heroine first of all, so I want to be a Mani Ratnam heroine because it is something very pure and real at the same time. He is one director who can… You will be real as a character but he will still make you look aspirational at the same time,” said the Manmarziyaan actress.
