Actress Taapsee Pannu who is active on her social media accounts has responded to a tweet that compared her physique to that of a man. The image, which showed Taapsee from behind, was recently released. Taapsee will next be seen in Rashmi Rocket, an upcoming sports film directed by Akarsh Khurana, which will premiere on Zee5 on October 15.
Taapsee had previously shared photos of her intense fitness regimen for the film, in which she plays a sprinter. A Bollywood news-centric Twitter account shared the image, writing,“Ye Mard Ki Body Wali sirf @taapsee Hi Ho Sakti hai (Only Taapsee can have a manly body like this).” Taapsee responded, “All I will say is…. Just remember this line and wait for 23rd September :) And advance mein THANK YOU I really worked hard for this compliment.”
Rashmi Rocket was co-written by Kanika Dhillon, who, along with Taapsee, confronted several trolls and even a professional critic over their previous collaboration, Haseen Dillruba. Haseen Dillruba, directed by Vinil Mathew and co-starring Vikrant Massey and Harshvardhan Rane, premiered on Netflix earlier this year. She was most recently seen in Annabelle Sethupathi which was released on Disney+ Hotstar.
Talking about films, Taapsee's third straight-to-streaming release of the year is Rashmi Rocket. In recent interviews, the actor has expressed a desire to become a major box office draw, but her most recent theatrical release was Thappad in 2020. She is also working on Looop Lapeta, Dobaara, Shabaash Mithu, her debut film Blurr, and other projects.
