Taapsee Pannu, Pratik Gandhi's first glimpse in Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan
In Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan, Taapsee Pannu plays a fiery officer, while Pratik Gandhi plays a chauvinistic brat on the hunt for his lost bride.
The first look at Taapsee Pannu's upcoming film, Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan?, has been released. While she is dressed as a cop, her co-star Pratik Gandhi, who is best known for his role in Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story, is costumed as a "newly-wedded scion of a Masala magnate family."
Sharing the picture, Taapsee wrote on Instagram, "Pratik Gandhi and I are all set to find his missing bride in Junglee Pictures & Roy Kapur Films' next comedy-drama #WohLadkiHaiKahaan? Here's the #FirstLook!! @pratikgandhiofficial @roykapurfilms @jungleepictures @arshadasyed #SiddharthRoyKapur @malvika25."
Taapsee is seen examining a map while dressed in a police uniform and standing with Pratik, who is using binoculars to seek for his missing bride. He is dressed in a sherwani and wearing jewellery. The two are seen standing on a terrace's edge.
The fans of the two were elated to see them together in such a picture. A fan asked, "Harshad mehta fir se pakda gaya?" Another wrote, "Ab bride, scam karke bhaag gye. it would be interesting Film." One more fan commented, "Most probably he is not looking at your direction as you have the gun." A fan made a guess at the plot of the film and wrote, "And you both fall in love and get married in the end." A fan went on to comment on Pratik's colourful binoculars and wrote, "Ohh man look at Pratik's binocular..studded with red and golden beads .... Chora pakka gujju che."
The film Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? stars Taapsee Pannu as a feisty officer. Pratik plays a chauvinistic brat who "finds himself compelled to take a riotous, madcap ride with Taapsee's character, whose attitude to life is the diametrical opposite of his.," according to the makers. Arshad Syed, co-writer of Breathe Into The Shadows, is writing and directing the film.
Talking about playing a police officer for the first time, Taapsee said, "Playing a police woman and doing a comedy film has always been on my checklist and I am happy that it is finally ticked off. I had seen Pratik's work and I think he is a very talented actor and I am absolutely enjoying working with him. Arshad has written an amazing script with great comic quirks and also a lot of heart, which I am looking forward to. I am happy that Junglee Pictures and Roy Kapur Films have collaborated to produce this film. It's going to be a fun ride!"
Pratik Gandhi said, "My character in Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? is very different from anything I have ever done before, and that is very exciting. Taapsee is super talented and I am so thrilled to be working with her. Arshad has a great vision and he has written the story with so much nuance! I am sure the audiences will love it."
Talking about his directorial debut, Arshad Syed said, "Having a cast of brilliant actors like Taapsee Pannu and Pratik Gandhi has enriched my cinematic journey. The characters they're essaying are the comic fodder of our film. Sharing the first glimpse of their characters is exciting for the entire team".
