Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu, who is gearing up for her upcoming time-travel film ‘Dobaaraa’, will be seen portraying one role but two different avatars in the thriller offering directed by Anurag Kashyap – the poster boy of contemporary parallel cinema.
The actress will essay the character of a woman, who is trapped in the world of many unfolded mysteries, the audience will see her juggling around two different worlds.
The film will capture the illusions of her presence in the past and the present in different looks without exploring the double-role personality. Dobaaraa will follow her struggle of finding the answers to the mysteries around her as she takes the suspense of the film ahead.
‘Dobaaraa’, which also reunites Taapsee with her ‘Thappad’ co-actor Pavail Gulati, is produced by Shobha Kapoor & Ektaa R Kapoor’s Cult Movies, a new wing under Balaji Telefilms and Sunir Kheterpal & Gaurav Bose.
The film was recently in news when reports of Ekta Kapoor shuting down a reporter had surfaced. When a reporter asked her about working with Taapsee and Kangana, she hit back saying, “What kind of question is this? There is only one similarity, both are amazing trailblazer women and to play them against each other is not your and my job. We are women, we adjust each other’s crown, not remove it.”
Dobaaraa, which has already captured the cinephiles’ attention, is set to hit theatres on August 19.
