"Well, now I can check mark my bucket list option of working in an action movie with Akshay Kumar," says Taapsee, "He is someone who has done so many action movies over the years and for me to do my first film with him and that too in the action space is a huge high indeed."
Taapsee is now preparing for the part which takes her away from the sweet girl image of Chashme Baddoor.
Apparently, the moment Taapsee got to know about the film, she was relentless in expressing her interest to Neeraj.
"I have no qualms in admitting that I went really aggressive in bagging this part. I was persistent with Neeraj that he had to consider me for the part. Ultimately I was auditioned and made it to the film. I am glad it all worked out," she smiles.
Taapsee would soon be joining Akshay and Neeraj in the Nepal schedule of the film which kick-starts in May.
