Taapsee, Bhumi to play sharp­shoot­ers

The Hindu - - CINEMA PLUS - IANS

Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Ped­nekar will be seen play­ing the world’s old­est sharp­shoot­ers, Chan­dro To­mar and her sis­ter-in-law Prakashi To­mar, in a yet-to-be-ti­tled film. The film will mark writer Tushar Hi­ranan­dani’s début as di­rec­tor.

Taapsee shared a pho­to­graph of her­self along with Bhumi, Chan­dro and Prakashi. She cap­tioned the im­age: “Kick­start­ing the shoot of our coun­try’s old­est and coolest shoot­ers Chan­dro (and) Prakashi”.

Bhumi, who called it a “ground­break­ing” story, also shared the same im­age and cap­tioned it: “Old is gold and this is cer­tainly gold! Ex­cited to be­gin the shoot­ing of this ground-break­ing real story of the world’s old­est sharp­shoot­ers.” Other de­tails re­lated to the film are still un­der wraps.

Chan­dro, 87, and Prakashi, 82, are from Ut­tar Pradesh’s Johri vil­lage, and re­port­edly took up sharp­shoot­ing in their 50s. Chan­dro, who is fondly called as shooter ‘dadi’, is among the world’s old­est fe­male sharp­shoot­ers.
