‘COULDN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF SALMAN’
Taapsee Pannu was overjoyed to meet Salman on the sets of her film
After working with actor Amitabh Bachchan in Pink (2016) and Akshay Kumar in this year’s Naam Shabana — actor Taapsee Pannu (right) is definitely not new to starry vibes. However, the Delhi girl was in for a surprise when she got to meet actor Salman Khan while wrapping up the shooting for her upcoming film Judwaa 2. Salman joined the cast of the film for a cameo shoot and Varun Dhawan, who is reprising Khan’s role from the 2000 hit film Judwaa, took to Instagram to share a picture too, (above).
Asked how it was to meet Salman, Taapsee says, “I had heard so much about him that I just remained in awe of him. I kept looking and couldn’t take my eyes off him. It was that crazy starstruck moment for me. I was just trying to fathom the fact that he was standing there, right next to me.”
Whether there were any words of appreciation for her past films or performances, Taapsee adds, “We didn’t really have all those conversations. The only time we talked — there was a bunch of us from the entire cast and crew in the room, chatting together and sharing some funny anecdotes from the past experiences of shooting for Judwaa.”
So what were these fun conversations? “He was talking about his memories with David [Dhawan] and Sajid [Nadiadwala] sir, since their equation dates back to so many years,” quips Taapsee. “He was giggling while talking about some off the set experiences and funny situations that they have had two decades ago while shooting for Judwaa.” she adds.
