The makers of sports drama Rashami Rocket starring Actor Taapsee Pannu organized a special screening for the film in Mumbai. After the screening, Taapsee got involved in a press conference where she said she doesn’t look at role through gender or screen-time point of view, neither she thinks in that manner.
Where she was asked about picking up roles based on gender and screen-time, Taapsee Pannu reacted and said, “I get screen time properly, you can watch all my films and when did I say that? And above all, depending on my role I get the screen time. And to be honest, I haven’t looked at it this way ever, I was selected based on the gender and the character and the story, and I did what the story required. Had it been a man’s story, a man would have done the role, and I have never looked at it through gender’s point of view or screen time point of view, I’d stopped thinking this way a long time ago”
Talking about the film going for a digital release, the makers hosted a theatrical special screening and Taapsee Pannu couldn’t be more excited about it.
She further said, “After Thappad, I think I am watching myself on big-screen now with Rashmi Rocket, though it is lined-up for OTT release but there is always this excitement to watch it on big-screen. Also there is no anxiety with OTT release as there is no box-office pressure. We made this film with big-screen release in mind; its impact would have looked good on big-screen, so that reason we have organized this screening”
When asked about theaters re-opening and if would like to watch any particular film in theaters after a long time, Taapsee said, “Whichever film is releasing first, I am watching it on big-screen. It’s been a long time since movies released in theaters, so whichever comes first, I am watching it. I think in-between some movies did release theatrically, so I’d watched Wonder Woman, on the 1st January, and I thought, whatever you do on the first day of new year, it keeps on happening the entire year but it didn’t happen, so now any movie releases, I am watching it”
The film is directed by Akarsh Khurrana, will be released directly on a digital platform on October 15th.
