Whether it is Rumi in ‘Manmarziyaan’ or Rani in ‘Haseen Dillruba’, Kanika Dhillon and Taapsee Pannu have made headlines as a powerful writer-actor duo. While both characters were memorable and much talked about, now, ‘Rashmi Rocket’ has already piqued public interest.
Taapsee will be seen as the eponymous ‘Rashmi Rocket’ in the fictional sports drama film where dialogues and additional screenplay has been written by Kanika. Not only ‘Rashmi Rocket’, it seems like the writer-actor duo will also be seen joining hands in their fourth collaboration together with the ace film maker Rajkumar Hirani in his next, starring none other than the ‘Badshah’ of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan.
Hailed as one of Bollywood’s leading progressive writers with films like ‘Manmarziyaan’, ‘Kedarnath’, ‘Guilty’, ‘Judgemental Hai Kya’, and ‘Haseen Dillruba’, Kanika has also been credited for bringing stardom to writers and putting a face to the masters behind the screens. Recently, with her Netflix murder mystery ‘Haseen Dillruba’, Kanika became the first writer to earn the top billing on the movie’s trailer and poster, opening the floodgates for more writers on the block.
‘Rashmi Rocket’ is all set to release on October 15th, and is directed by Akarsh Khurana.
