Taapsee Pannu is one of the most successful actresses of the current generation. She has made a mark in the industry with her performances in many films like Baby, Naam Shabana, Soorma, Mulk, Badla, Saand Ki Aankh, and others.

But one thing that has surely attracted Taapsee the most is the sports-based films. She herself had stated in an interview, “Honestly, I’ve stopped counting the number of sports films that have come to me! Maybe it’s because people by now are aware about the kind of love I have for sports. Also, the fact that I’m very inquisitive to learn sports, makers know I’ll put in my 100 percent to learn. But, I’ve chosen a few out of all those. Yes, I’m inclined towards the theme, but my film choices will be more bases what the story is. I probably admire and follow so many sports stars, but not everybody has a story worth making into a movie. It’s a journey probably worth admiring.”

So, today, let’s look at the list of sports-based film Taapsee has been a part of and will be a part of.


Soorma was a biopic on Sandeep Singh and Singh’s character was played by Diljit Dosanjh in the film. However, it was Taapsee Pannu who stole the show with her fantastic performance in the movie. She played the role of a hockey player and nailed it.

Saand Ki Aankh starring Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar is one of the best films of 2019. The movie was a biopic on Shooter Dadis, Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar. Taapsee with her performance has surely hit the bullseye.
