Film producer and actor Jackky Bhagnani attended trailer launch of his upcoming produced film ‘Dil Junglee’ along with film’s lead actor’s Saqib Saleem and Taapsee Pannu on Wednesday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Bhagnani said that his film’s female lead Taapsee Pannu is one of the few actresses from our country who can pull off characters in all genres.
Praising Taapsee Pannu for her film choices, Jaccky said, “Taapsee pannu is one of the few actresses in our country who can do serious stuff, films of all genres. I don’t think many actresses in our country can do that and pull it off especially being a producer’s son, I know that getting audience to the theatre is not an easy job anymore in the age of Netflix and Amazon and what Taapsee is doing is actually outstanding.”
‘Dil Junglee’ have a solo release on 16 February so when asked Jackky whether coming solo will be beneficial for their film, he said, “There is an English film called ‘Panther’ releasing on the same day but yes as a Hindi film, as of now, we have solo release. It always makes a different because you get more theatres and you can have a wider release. We are very luck and fortunate that we have solo release because there are only 52 weeks in a year and there are so many films being produced so it becomes very rare occasion as today’s big stars also doesn’t get a solo release that’s why we jumped on this opportunity and release the film”
Talking about ‘ Dil Junglee’, Saqib said, “I think we have got the fantastic date 16th February for a film like us which is a buddy plus a romance film. We had a great time making this film. It’s a very fresh film and its first time that I am paired with Taapsee (Pannu) and we have interesting actors around us. This film has pace like ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ (2008) where friend around us are equally as important as me and Taapsee.”
Talking about her character in ‘Dil Junglee’ Taapsee said, “I am playing character of Coroli Nair which is far away from my own personality. One of the beautiful aspect of our film is songs in the film. There are really beautiful songs especially for valentine’s month which also includes Guru Randhawa’s song who is flavor of the season”
Taapsee was last seen in ‘Judwaa 2’ which was a comedy film and again ‘Dil Junglee; seems to be light hearted film so when asked Taapsee whether she will continue doing light hearted films only in future, she said, “I have only this film which is light hearted which will release this year but my upcoming film’s apart from this one, are really intense so after this film, I am will be in original space doing intense roles”
“ I feel If you keep on doing different kind of films then it feels good and if I repeat myself in one after another film, then it will be boring for me and for audience as well. If you see my look and the space I am in this film, I don’t think it is anywhere near to ‘Judwaa 2’”
‘Dil Junglee’ stars Saqib Saleem, Taapsee Pannu, Abhilash Thapliyal, Shrishti Shrivastav and Nidhi Singh in key roles.
It is being directed by Aleya Sen and produced by s Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshikha Deshmukh.
