Ac­tress Taapsee Pannu says she had to “keep the cold” for a few scenes in the forth­com­ing film Pink. She says while film­ing a scene, set in a court­room, Taapsee was caught by a vi­ral bug and was un­der heavy med­i­ca­tion. She even re­quested her pro­duc­tion team, espe­cially the film’s co-pro­ducer Shoo­jit Sir­car, to al­low her to dub her voice later. But the pro­ducer strongly felt that the ill­ness would add more au­then­tic­ity to her role of a wo­man on trial.For those scenes, Taapsee had to look pale and sound tired.

Re­count­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence, Taapsee said in a state­ment: “It sounded funny to me at first when Shoo­jit sir asked me to keep the cold. My par­ents were vis­it­ing me at that time and they were even more stunned at this re­quire­ment of the role. “I went with it and all my court scenes were done with heavy vi­ral in­fec­tion. Hope it helps peo­ple feel what we wanted them to feel.” Di­rected by Anirud­dha Roy Chowd­hary, the film was shot in Mum­bai and Delhi. It is all set to re­lease on Septem­ber 16. Taapsee who has been re­ceiv­ing a rave re­sponse for the trailer of Pink found mo­ti­va­tion for her emo­tion­ally in­vig­o­rat­ing role in the forth­com­ing movie in a per­for­mance by in­ter­na­tional singer Lady Gaga. In Pink, Taapsee plays the role of a girl who fights for jus­tice for her and her friends. So while shoot­ing for the movie, it was es­sen­tial for her to have the feel and the pain re­quired for the role. In or­der to cope with it, she found in­spi­ra­tion in Gaga’s act at the Academy Awards 2016.
