'Taapsee very sensible, passionate actor'

...says director Mahi Raghav, whose horror comedy Anando Brahma starring the actress releases this Friday

Published: 15th August 2017

Filmmaker Mahi Raghav, who originally didn't expect Taapsee Pannu to sign his forthcoming Telugu horror comedy Anando Brahma, says he finds her to be a very sensible and passionate actor.

"When I had pitched the story, Pink had not released and I was hopeful she would do my film. Then I got busy finding a producer and the process took one whole year. Meanwhile, she earned lot of popularity and I thought she might not do my film," Raghav says.

Taapsee showed a lot of faith in Raghav's film, and that touched him. "I don't judge an artist by their previous work. I pitched the story to Taapsee out of intuition, and I found her to be very sensible and passionate. I think it's really important that an actor has the right attitude than talent for a project to click. Taapsee is the best example," he says.

Anando Brahma is slated for release on Friday. It also stars Vennela Kishore, Srinivas Reddy, Shakalaka Shankar and Tagubothu Ramesh.

Asked if working with Taapsee was any different after Pink, Raghav says, "I follow a collaborative approach to filmmaking. As a director, I can only write and shoot a scene, but it's up to the artiste to interpret the scene and perform. Taapsee knows her craft better and that really helped the project."

Talking about the project, he says, "It's actually a comedy with a horror premise. Usually, humans are afraid of ghosts but what happens when the tables are turned? The flaws of the lead characters become their strengths and that makes our film different from any other horror flick."

The film's core is a drama centered on Taapsee.
