After making Manmarziyan together, Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap will reunite once again.
“It is a supernatural horror thriller,” Taapsee tells Subhash K Jha. “But not what we are used to seeing in Indian cinema. There are no ghosts in this film. It’s a different kind of ghost story, something never seen before. It’s an experiment but now, every film of mine has become an experiment. I am excited to work with Anurag Kashyap again.”
Meanwhile, Taapsee has started work on another project.

Like a true blue female hero, Taapsee has been shooting during the night-time for Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad.
“On the contrary, if I was a true blue star, as you say, I’d make sure there is no night shooting,” Taapsee says with a laugh. “On a more serious note, I can see the change in my career in the kind of roles I get nowadays.”
Taapsee confesses she is spoilt for choice.
“There are so many scripts to choose from. My team is going crazy, trying to figure out which ones I should do and which ones I should say no to. I don’t want to say no to good work but there are only 24 hours in a day and only one of me,” she says.
Shouldering a film has become second nature to Taapsee, and she isn’t complaining.
“But the idea is to be a part of cinema that is significant. I can’t be looking at my role only,” she says.
