The ‘Badla‘actress feels grateful to be a part of the biopic as she gets to essay a personality of such calibre. Taapsee shares, “She is an icon and not everybody gets a chance to portray someone like her. She is definitely someone I look up to, for not just her game, but also the kind of ideas and values she stands for. That’s why I love her even more.”
Apart from the biopic, she has been shooting for another sports film, Rashmi Rocket, where she essays an athlete. With two back-to-back films with sports as a backdrop, ask Taapsee if she is getting any inputs from her sportsman boyfriend Mathias Boe, who’s a badminton player, and she’s quick to add, “I think a brain surgeon cannot really tell a heart surgeon what to do! So, I don’t think we can compare and share tips on such different sports.” The actress further says that she draws a line between her personal and professional lives when it comes to her relationship. “I have a life and a job of my own, which is very different from his, and we like to keep it apart,” she signs off.
