Taapsee Pannu, who impressed critics and cinephiles with powerful performances in Mulk (2018) and Manmarziyan (2018) last year, has begun preparing for her next movie Womaniya. To be produced by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, the movie will be helmed by writer-turned-director Tushar Hiranandani.
Womaniya stars Taapsee Pannu in the role of a professional shooter. The film is inspired by the life of India’s oldest shooters – Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law, Prakashi Tomar. The actress will start shooting for the film in February.
“Taapsee has been undergoing training for this project and the makers of the film wanted to shoot the film during the peak of winter. Hence, the film will go on floors by next month in a village in Uttar Pradesh,” a source close to the development reveals.
Womaniya is a two-heroine project. While Taapsee Pannu is onboard from the very beginning of the project, no announcement has been made regarding the actress who plays the other female lead in the movie.
However, if reports are to be believed, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017) fame Bhumi Pednekar has given her nod to star in the flick.
The film may release towards the end of the year.
