Sharing the information, Taapsee wrote, “Right, so here’s yet another announcement from my stable. I’m on a roll. Or shall I say in a loop? Stoked to announce Sony Picture India and Ellipsis Entertainment’s crazy thriller-comedy, “LOOOP LAPETA”, an adaptation of the cult classic “Run Lola Run.” Looking forward to the roller-coaster with my director Aakash Bhatia, my co-star, Tahir Raj Bhasin and the amazing folks at Ellipsis Entertainment (Tanuj, Atul) and Sony!

Run Lola Run is a 1998 German thriller film written and directed by Tom Tykwer. With Franka Potente in the titular role of Lola, the film also starred Moritz Bleibtreu. The film follows a woman who needs to obtain 100,000 Deutsche Mark in 20 minutes to save her boyfriend’s life.
Meanwhile, Taapsee awaits the release of Anubhav SInha’s Thappad where she plays a wife who is not ready to treat violence as a norm. The film is set to reach big screens on February 28 this year.
She also has Rashami Rocket and Haseen Dilruba in the pipeline. Directed by Vinil Mathew, Haseen Dillruba is scheduled to release on September 18. Taapsee will also be seen as cricketer Mithali Raj in Shabaash Mithu.
Talking about her choice of films, she recently told IANS, “How I stand for gender equality and women’s right has nothing to do with success, but everything to do with upbringing. I was never told that I am any less because I am a girl. I have a sister and, whether it is education, jobs or any other choice we made, in our house my parents never questioned it because we are girls. So the choice of films that I make is a reflection of my mindset. My audience sees my belief in my choices.”
