Taapsee Pannu's good Urdu accent got her the 'Baby' roleDec 3, 2014 NR
It was primarily for her crisp and clear Urdu that actress Taapsee Pannu was chosen by Neeraj Pandey for his action thriller “Baby”.
The 27-year-old, who made her Bollywood debut with “Chashme Baddoor”, got excited when director Neeraj Pandey approached her for a role in his film “Baby” because of her talent.
The “Special 26” director was searching for an actress whose dialect in Urdu was crisp and clear, and his search ended with Taapsee.
“All Neeraj asked me to do was to read a few lines which had quite a few Urdu words and phrases. Being a Punjabi girl, people expect me to have a north Indian influence in my speech, but to his surprise I managed decently well I guess”, Taapsee said.
The espionage movie, which stars superstar Akshay Kumar in the lead role, along with Madhurima Tuli, Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa and Anupam Kher, will hit the theatres on Jan 23rd 2015. Click the Movie button below for more info:
