‘Not playing Amrita Pritam’

‘Not playing Amrita Pritam’
Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu has denied she is playing Amrita Pritam in a new biopic. On Tuesday, a section of the entertainment media mistook Taapsee Pannu’s social media post quoting legendary author-poet Amrita Pritam to assume that the actress was set to play Pritam in Anubhav Sinha’s under-production Thappad. 

It now turns out Tapsee is not playing Amrita Pritam. “It’s sad that the majority did not bother to read and interpret my tweet efficiently enough. Nor connect it with what I posted just a day before the post on Amrita Pritam. It’s sad that I have to spell it out so obviously to you,” the actress told.

Taapsee, who recently signed a film where she plays a Gujarati sprinter, feels she would be far more open in admitting it if she were to really play Amrita Pritam. “It’s sad that people think I will write such a cryptic post if I am portraying that magnificent character on screen. So, sadly but honestly,  the truth is Amrita is the name of my character in Anubhav Sinha’s film Thappad  and since her name has a certain connect with Amrita Pritam, I used a quote that’s written by her but reflects in my character Amrita’s life in Anubhav sir’s film,” she cleared the air. —IANS
