Taapsee, who had a good year with the blockbuster Kanchana 2 in 2015, is in talks with Lyca Productions to play the lead heroine opposite Akshay Kumar in the official Hindi remake of Vijay’s Kaththi, which was a super hit at the box office.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu played Vijay’s romantic interest in the original. “We have approached Taapsee, yes. But she is yet to give her nod for the project,” says a source in the know. The Hindi remake has been titled Ikka and will be directed by Jegan, who is a former assistant of AR Murugadoss.
Taapsee’s forthcoming projects include one Hindi film where she will be seen sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan and Ghazi, a Telugu war drama where she essays the role of a refugee. Rana Daggubati plays the lead role in Ghazi which went on floors two days back and is being made as a Telugu-Hindi bi-lingual.
