Taapsee, who has already started shooting for Mulk with Anubhav Sinha has started prepping for her role in Shaad Ali’s next as a hockey player, in which she would be sharing the screen space with Diljit Dosanjh.
Taapsee essays the role of an Olympian hockey player and for which she has had to begin intense hockey practice sessions to learn the nuances of the sport. She herself has a keen affinity for sports and fitness in general and has been enjoying her time on the practice ground to learn about the sport.
Interestingly Taapsee’s father too played hockey when he was younger and Taapsee had only seen pictures of him when she was younger growing up in Delhi. She is using that as an inspiration for herself and finds it emotional that 20 years later she herself would be learning the sport, something which has a very special personal meaning for her.
We are excited to see these hockey genes reflecting on screen. The film is believed to be based on the story of Sandeep Singh, the coveted hockey player of India and the ex-captain.
This is simply the perfect Father-Daugther moment.
Stay tuned for more Bollywood updates!
