Taapsee Pannu to act alongside Rishi Kapoor in Anubhav Sinha's thriller titled Mulk
It has been a year of highs for Taapsee Pannu. After creating a huge impact with her stellar performance in Pink, the actress is now gearing up for Anubhav Sinha's social thriller titled Mulk.
Mulk will also star Rishi Kapoor and Prateik Babbar as Pannu's father-in-law and brother-in-law respectively, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.
In the film, Babbar gets involved in a terror-related crime, and Pannu steps in to protect the family's honour. The film will go on floors in October or November, and will be set in either Lucknow or Varanasi. Varanasi also happens to be Sinha's hometown.
Mulk marks the first time that the director will explore the part of India he belongs to. Sinha also told Mirror that Rajat Kapoor has also been signed on for a role, while the rest of the cast is still being finalised.
Apart from Mulk, Pannu will also be seen next in Judwaa 2; the shoot of this film has been wrapped up. She will share screen-space with Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in this David Dhawan directorial.
Pannu was last seen in Naam Shabana, the prequel to Baby, in which she reprised her role as Shabana. The film starred Akshay Kumar, Manoj Bajpayee and Anupam Kher in pivotal roles.
