Actress Taapsee Pannu, who is gearing up for her upcoming film ‘Naam Shabana’ said that she can’t even slap someone in real life and is a non-violent person. The lady is famous for portraying some strong characters in Bollywood films.
"I can't even slap someone in real life. Naturally, I am quite a hyperactive girl because I was into sports in my school days. So, because of that, my attitude seems like that only. Otherwise, I am a non-violent person in real life," she said at the launch of training video of the new song "Zinda..." from "Naam Shabana" on Friday.
The lady was applauded for her wonderful performance in ‘Pink’.
Speaking about her upcoming film ‘Naam Shabana’, she said, "I had to practise a lot for action sequences. Sometimes I had to take physiotherapy because I felt stiffness in muscle and joints became weak because of action stunts. Mentally and physically this character is really very tough for me because it is not at all related to my personality."
On being asked, as the film is a spin-off of the hit film "Baby", is there any pressure for her, she replied: "We have the same star cast in the film but Akshay is in a cameo. Also, there are Manoj Bajpai and Prithviraj Sukumaran who are also outstanding actors in their own way.
"However, playing the title role isn't a pressure for me because Neeraj (Pandey) and Akshay sir supported a lot. I am not in a pressure but I am excited to learn that if being a two-film-old actress, I can play the central character in the film, then the usual idea about the industry, which says it is tough to get the lead for a new actor, is proven wrong."
The action spy thriller is directed by Shivam Nair and produced by Neeraj Pandey. It is a prequel/spin-off from the 2015 film "Baby" and also features Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa and others. The movie is scheduled to release on March 31.
