Actress Taapsee Pannu revealed the truth that she was not the first choice for the film Haseen Dilruba, and detailed on how she was casted when all other options had been exhausted.
She was casted after all other stars rejected the offer.
In a chat with Pinkvilla Taapsee said, "Haseen Dillruba' was a film I had a very gut feeling about the day I heard the basic idea from (writer) Kanika (Dhillon). Unfortunately, I wasn't the first choice for the film and it came to me after all their options were exhausted.”
She continued, "The good old saying that, if it's meant for you it will come to you stands true for this case. It's not just a beautifully written mystery,it has such wonderful characters, which is candy in an actor's hands.”
Taapsee quoted, "I am glad I got to experiment with my look and performance with this one because I am definitely not the go-to person for this kind of character conventionally, and we all love to take risks.”
The film is based on the story of a girl who loved to live in a fantasy world but her bubble was shattered when she is embroiled in her husband’s murder. The film is a mix of romance and revenge.
Regarding the plot Taapse said, "I hope it surprises the audience as much as it surprised me when I heard it first. It was an enthralling experience shooting for.”
Directed by Vinil Mathew, Haseen Dilruba was slated to release on Netflix soon.
