Taapsee will debut in Nagshekhar's Raja Rani
The Kannada film industry has been abuzz with rumours of Taapsee Pannu making her debut in sandalwood. As it now turns out, she will, albeit because it is being made in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, besides Kannada. Taapsee will be the heroine of director Nagshekhar's film Raja Rani.
"I agreed to do it because it is getting made in Tamil and Telugu as well, as I have no intention of starting my career in just the Kannada or Malayalam industry now. It is a big step and I am prepared for that," she says.
That apart, Taapsee says that it was Nagshekhar who became the clincher for her. "Three of his movies were beautiful love stories and quite successful. I was looking forward to do a love story in the south, as I haven't done one so far, she added.
