TAAPSEE’S AWARA MO­MENT

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - YASHIKA MATHUR

Ac­tor Taapsee Pannu (right), who’s a big fan of Bol­ly­wood films of the 1950s and 60s, says a se­quence in her up­com­ing project re­minded her of a mem­o­rable mo­ment from the hit film Awara (1951). In film­maker Tigmanshu Dhulia’s next, Pannu shot a ro­man­tic scene in the rain.

“It's the first time I have shot a typ­i­cal Bol­ly­wood ro­man­tic mo­ment in the rain. My mind trav­elled back in time to that par­tic­u­lar mo­ment in Awara, which I be­lieve ev­ery ac­tor has seen and been in awe of. It (a love scene in the rain) might be a cliché but it still has the power to cre­ate that magic it did years back,” says Pannu, who has been part of Bol­ly­wood films such as Chashme Bad­door (2013) and Baby (2015).

“Tapsee was shoot­ing with (ac­tor) Amit Sadh, and the scene re­quired them to walk in the rain. The set up re­minded her of vet­eran stars Nar­gis and Raj Kapoor from Awara. She was very ex­cited about the out­come of the scene. She wanted it to come out per­fectly,” a source tells us. “The scene was shot in one take and was loved by ev­ery­one on the sets,” adds the source.
