Taapsee Pannu almost rejected ‘Looop Lapeta’ for this reason – Bollywood News

Actress Taapsee Pannu is set for the release of her comedy thriller ‘Looop Lapeta’ where she will be seen sharing the screen with actor Tahir Raj Bhasin. During a recent chat with media, Taapsee revealed that she was initially skeptical about the project resuming. “Looop Lapeta” is the remake of a German film “Run Lola Run” and the plot features a woman trying to save her boyfriend while being stuck in a time loop.

“I said yes (Looop Lapeta) instantly because it was so funny. Today it makes you feel like this concept was made for India more than the German classic it was. By Therefore, I ended up saying yes. The film is a messy take on new age romance, a genre I’m exploring for the first time,” Taapsee told PTI.

Taapsee also recalled that she was initially reluctant to take on the project since she had already made a film about the time loop. She said: “I had done a movie called ‘Game Over’, which had something similar in it. I didn’t want to repeat a concept in another movie, so I went in with the intention of saying no. I told the producer Atul (Kasbekar) that I haven’t seen the original movie but I know the story and the basic concept. But he told me to listen (the script). And if that still looks similar and if I don’t want to, then it’s fine.”

Directed by Akash Bhatia, “Looop Lapeta” will be released on February 4 exclusively on Netflix. .
