Taapsee Pannu to replace Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Shailesh R Singh’s cop drama?
aapsee Pannu to replace Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Shailesh R Singh’s cop drama? – After Hrs had earlier reported that Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were offered a cop drama produced by Shailesh R Singh. But in our latest interview with Aishwarya, she said that there’s been no ‘progress’ on the police drama since February. Recently, Junior B confirmed to us, “The cop movie is not happening.”
However, it doesn’t mean that it has been shelved. A source tells us, “Shailesh and his team of writers have reworked the script. It’s still a drama, but with humorous undertones. The main characters are two IPS officers who are married to each other.”
Buzz is that the project has now been offered to Taapsee Pannu. “The makers have discussed the idea with her. It’s a strong female character, so the producers were looking out for someone with substance to deliver the part. Taapsee is yet to get a proper narration. Only then will she decide whether she wants to do it or not,” adds the source. Taapsee has three projects on the anvil — Manmarziyaan, Badla and Womaniya — followed by Anurag Basu’s next. We reached out to the actress, but she chose not to comment.
