Right, so here's yet another announcement from my stable. I'm on a roll. Or shall I say in a loop? Stoked to announce Sony Picture India and Ellipsis Entertainment's crazy thriller-comedy, "LOOOP LAPETA", an adaptation of the cult classic "Run Lola Run." Looking forward to the roller-coaster with my director Aakash Bhatia, my co-star, Tahir Raj Bhasin and the amazing folks at Ellipsis Entertainment (Tanuj, Atul) and Sony! Mark your calendar for 29th Jan, 2021! @tahirrajbhasin @sonypicturesin @ellipsisentertainment @bhatiaaakash @tanuj.garg @atulkasbekar @vivekkrishnani @Aayush_Blm #loooplapeta
Taapsee will step into Franka Potente's shoes for this remake and will romance Tahir Raj Bhasin in same. The remake of this German cult classic is a thriller-comedy that's modified to suit the Indian taste. Speaking about her new outing, the actress in her interaction with Mumbai Mirror said, "Savi is a quirky, insane addition to my repertoire. I love how an iconic film like Run Lola Run has been adapted for the Indian milieu without losing its edge. More excitingly, it’s been laced with amazingly cheeky straight-faced humour. It’s cool in the truest sense of the word and as bold thematically as it is stylistically. I can’t wait to get started." The film will hit the screens on January 29, 2021.

Taapsee will collaborate with Chhapaak actor Vikrant Massey and Harshvardhan Rane for her next intriguing outing.

Rashmi Rocket is a story that revolves around an athlete. It's about a girl who achieves and conquers in her field despite all the adversities.
