Taapsee Pannu was last seen in Game Over. Her last Bollywood release was Badla, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. Besides Saadh Ki Ankh, the actor will be seen in Mission Mangal. The space-themed film, based on the women scientists behind the 2014 Mangalayan mission, is scheduled for release on August 15.
