Taapsee Pannu on getting trolled for Rashmi Rocket : ‘I was jumping with excitement seeing that reaction to my picture’
For Taapsee Pannu, success means individuals believing in her movies, being invested in them. “I shouldn’t be so irrelevant that nobody is bothered by what I’m saying or doing,” she asserts.

Taapsee has over time, carved a distinct segment in cinema and is thought for high-content, issue-driven cinema. She feels that going again to the everyday business cinema is likely to be tad tough for her. “If I do films which don’t revolve around an issue, some people will raise eyebrows. Now you see my situation, if my film caters to an issue, there’s a section that claims I only do films with a ‘mudda’, and if there isn’t any, even that’s a problem. So I’m stuck in a situation where ‘naa chitt meri, naa patt meri’. I’ve understood that I cannot make everyone happy with my choices. I’d rather make myself happy and create a filmography where I can look back and be proud of,” she advised indianexpress.com.
Rashmi Rocket has Taapsee taking part in a sprinter who will get banned from the game resulting from excessive testosterone ranges after she is pressured to undertake a gender take a look at. She challenges India’s athletics affiliation and takes the authorized path to win again her misplaced respect and id.
Taapsee was taking pictures for Game Over (2019) when Rashmi Rocket got here to her. “I was shocked that despite personally loving sports, I was unaware about gender testing. I did Google search and found out this really happens. So many female athletes get banned and also end up damaging their life in so many ways. There’s so much social shaming that happens. I realised it’s a story that hasn’t been told in mainstream and I knew it’ll hit hard.”

Post the discharge of the trailer, many acknowledged that Rashmi Rocket reminded them of Dutee Chand’s actual story in 2014. Infact, the movie can be set in the identical yr. Taapsee, nonetheless, says it’s not a biopic. She shared that they intentionally didn’t make it about one individual’s journey. “We assembled a lot of events and put them together in one storyline. I stayed away from going into a full-fledged one person reference. I saw interviews of different athletes across the world. Rashmi Vira is an amalgamation of all these female athletes who’ve gone through it. It was very important to validate with scientific facts and not emotionally,” she mentioned.
Taapsee collaborated with director Akarsh Khurana and actors Priyanshu Painyuli and Abhishek Banerjee for the primary time in Rashmi Rocket. Though she laughed on the irony of Akarsh helming a movie the place health was an integral half, she added that as a result of it was not only a sports activities movie however a human story, he was one of the best guess.

“Sports is just in the backdrop. We needed someone who could do strong storytelling, with a heart and soul, rather than make it look larger than life. Clapping and whistling becomes a part of it,” Taapsee mentioned. She added that it was her first time with Priyanshu too although she had heard a variety of good issues about his work from Akarsh and in addition Anurag Kashyap. “Abhishek had this urge to give it his best, because he was doing such a role for the first time. My greed is to collaborate with good actors because my acting improves around them.”
Taapsee underwent rigorous coaching to get an athletic physique and muscle groups. The races and observe sequences are among the many highpoints of the movie too. “Every muscle of mine ran!” she mentioned with a laughter.
Further calling it one of many uncommon movies that simply “has the potential of being that full blown commercial film along with an issue at heart,” Taapsee mentioned it was heartbreaking when the makers determined to go for an OTT launch for Rashmi Rocket. “You can enjoy the song and dance, the grandeur, have that adrenaline pump of the races, but you’ll also cry at the end of it. Rarely you get a script with such a range.”
“The female-driven films that I’ve done till date are all about a girl who’s an underdog and then she becomes the hero of her life. Here, Rashmi is a hero from the first frame. For me, she was a heroic big screen character,” she added.

“Those trolls gave me a promotional strategy on a platter. They didn’t even realise what hit them. It was like you struck gold, I was jumping with excitement seeing that reaction to my picture. Then when the trailer came out, I reacted that if you throw lemon at me, I’ll make lemonade out of it,” she gushed.
Taapsee lands in controversy from time to time, together with I-T raids in opposition to her just a few months in the past. The actor mentioned with a smile, “They are like speed-breakers, and my vehicle isn’t fragile that it’ll collapse so easily. And life will become too boring if we don’t have such things (laughs).”
“Obviously it’s human to feel bogged down for bit when any such problem comes, and not just IT raids. It’ll either break you or make you a better person. I would rather become a stronger person. That’s the only constant and that’s okay. I don’t have any complaint about these hurdles. I just want my audience to trust me,” she concluded.
