Taapsee’s new Tamil film will see her playing a street-smart woman

Even as a handful of Bollywood films and Ahmed’s Jayam Ravi-starrer Jana Gana Mana keeps her busy, Taapsee has signed her next in Tamil. The actress will be seen in an out-and-out comedy, directed by debutant Deepak Sundarrajan, which also stars Vijay Sethupathi in an important role.

A source in the know says, “Taapsee plays a street-smart woman in the film. It is a humour-based script and has a huge ensemble cast, including some well-known comedians from Kollywood.”

We hear Deepak is presently in Jaipur, where the film will be shot. The source adds, “Deepak, son of veteran director-actor R Sundarrajan, has assisted Vijay before. He is doing his recce now in Jaipur and plans to start shoot as soon as permission is granted.”
