Taapsee Pannu drops out of Anurag Basu’s next

Last seen in Anurag Kashyap’s romantic film Manmarziyan (2018), actress Taapsee Pannu has some exciting projects on her platter right now. She is presently shooting for Sujoy Ghosh’s next film Badla with superstar Amitabh Bachchan.

In February, she will start shooting for Anurag Kashyap’s next production Womaniya which, reportedly, also stars Bhumi Pednekar in a pivotal role. Writer-turned-director Tushar Hiranandani will call the shots for the flick.

Besides all aforementioned projects, Pannu was also rumoured to be joining forces with filmmaker Anurag Basu for his next directorial venture. However, if fresh reports are to be believed, the actress has decided to bid adieu to the project.

Basu’s next is a multi-starrer, believed to be on the lines of his 2007 film Life In A…Metro. Reportedly, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur and Abhishek Bachchan have been finalized to play important roles in the film. The director had also signed Taapsee Pannu for a significant part opposite Aditya Roy Kapur.

However, Taapsee Pannu decided to quit the film because she had no clarity over her dates required for the shoot. The actress had even asked the director about the dates, but when the latter failed to do the needful, she decided to opt out of the movie.

It will be interesting to see which actress fills her shoes in the flick now.
