Taapsee Pannu’s films are known for their eclectic choice of topics, and the fact that most of them perform exceedingly well at the box-office. Not only will her already released film ‘Badla’ be screened at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM), her upcoming release ‘Mission Mangal’ will be premiering at the festival, too.
Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) is going to host the premiere of the film Mission Mangal. The film is based on India’s Mars Orbiter Mission, and has an ensemble star cast comprising Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, and Sharman Joshi. The story of Mission Mangal is basically an underdog story of fresh, new scientists who work towards the interplanetary space expedition.
Badla, on the other hand, is Sujoy Ghosh’s thriller which had Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starring together, once again, after Pink. Amitabh Bachchan plays a lawyer in the film, who is trying to solve the case of the murder of Taapsee Pannu’s husband for which she is being framed. Badla had garnered great reviews at the box office, and won appreciation from critics as well.
It would be interesting to see audience’s responses to Mission Mangal‘s premiere, since it only releases in India on August 15, 2019. Other dignitaries invited to the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne include Shah Rukh Khan, who is the Chief Guest, as well as Tabu and Sriram Raghavan for their film Andhadhun.
Taapsee Pannu will also be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s next Saand Ki Aankh with Bhumi Pednekar, which is slated for a Diwali 2019 release.
