Tamannaah


Tamannaah Bhatia, who is awaiting the release of her next film Sye Raa Narsimha Reddy, has bagged yet another exciting character to play. The gorgeous actress has been roped in to play the role of a coach in Sampath Nandi’s untitled sports drama. In the film, she coaches to an all-girls team opposite Gopichand.

Confirming the news, Tamannaah said, “I share a great working relationship with the director and when the story was narrated to me, I found the script very exciting and experimental. Sports is something that has always intrigued me. There will be a lot of groundwork that I will have to undergo right from accent to my posture to technical knowledge to prepare myself well for this film.”

“My role is a tribute of sorts to coaches like Pullela Gopichand, Ramakant Achrekar, Guru Hanuman, Satpal Singh and the likes who have turned things around for Indian sports. Coaching is an underrated aspect of any professional sport and that is why this was even more interesting,” she added.

Adding further, she said in conclusion, “The best coaches in sports history have impacted the game both on and off the sidelines of their respective sports. There is one thing they all had in common though, a winner’s mentality and that’s something that I want to showcase on the big screen. I have been making a conscious effort of multi-tasking between genres so that there’s more versatility in my creative kitty and I’m not stereotyped into any particular genre. Versatility is the key to survival.”

Earlier, Mouni Roy was signed to play the main lead opposite the actor, but she opted out of the project at the last moment.
