The official teaser is out and Taapsee Pannu who is so excited about the feedback that the teaser received, had shared the joy with none other than her Pink co-star Amitabh Bachchan.
In the message to the megastar, Taapsee Pannu had mentioned the 76-year-old actor s rockstar which actually shows what kind of a special bond she shares with BIG B. Surprisingly, Amitabh Bachchan calls her to be “completely chilled out”. As Taapsee Pannu sent text to Amitabh Bachchan asking him to have a watch of the teaser of her upcoming film Saand Ki Aankh, Amitabh Bachchan after getting the endearing message shared it on Twitter saying, “T 3224 – This is Taapsee Pannu, colleague & completely chilled out .. sends me sms : Hi rockstar This is the teaser of my latest madness releasing this Diwali , too excited for this one so sharing it with you. Tell me if it surprises you 🙂 http://bit.ly/SKAOfficialTeaser Well done.”
Seeing Big B’s response to her message, Taapsee Pannu replied by saying, “Hahahahahaha. So I assume you will celebrate this Diwali with us !!!!!”
Both of the actors, Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan have worked together in the 2016 film Pink helmed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.
Saand Ki Aankh is based on a real story revolving around two elderly sharpshooters, Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar who belongs from the village of Johri. Here the two characters are played by Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar. The two elderly women Chandra and Prakashi had received national fame at the age of 65. The two women against all odds won more than 30 national championships. These two women are known to be the oldest sharpshooter in India. It has been known that Taapsee Pannu for the film had done training with an air pistol and rifle shooting.
However, there were some setbacks the film had faced as the movie featured two young women who did not look close to playing 60-year-old characters. Taapsee Pannu in an interview with PTI had spoken up about criticism by saying, “I was pretty surprised and laughed at it thinking, no one questioned me when I played a college girl at 30. Nobody questions when these big actors portray college characters being triple the age. At that time nothing happens.” After that, she also added by saying, “It’s so strange that two actresses, at the prime of their careers, decided to look more than double their age, where today an actress always wants to look younger and younger. We decided to look double the age. Instead of appreciating it, people are finding issues with it.”
Saand Ki Aankh directed by Tushar Hiranandani will come to the theatre on October 25.
