Taapsee Pannu will make a comeback to Tamil cinema after a gap of three years with Game Over. Directed by Ashwin Saravanan, the shooting for the movie is set to commence tomorrow.
The first look poster that was released by the director shows a wheelchair-bound Pannu with plastered legs. The background and surroundings have an animated tone that stands in stark contrast to Pannu’s physical state.
Directed by Ashwin Saravanan whose last movie Iravakaalam remains unreleased, Game Over has been produced by S Sashikanth under the banner Y NOT Studios. For Saravanan, who debuted with Nayanthara’s 2015 movie Maya, Game Over marks his third outing.
Thanking the producer for presenting him with the opportunity of making this movie, Saravanan through his tweet, said Pannu ‘was an actress he had been dying to work with.’

Taapsee Pannu, who is riding high on the success of her latest Bollywood release Manmarziyaan, has had a phenomenal year with films like Soorma and Mulk in which her performances won her appreciation. Talking about her character Rumi in Manmarziyaan, Pannu told us in an interview: “I was one of the few who judged Rumi when I heard the script. We have been conditioned for so many years that a female character can either be black or white – the villain and vamp or the sacrificing idol who thinks of all but herself. I had to convince myself I could play her. Despite everything, Rumi is lovable and endearing, because she is so real. We see a part of ourselves in her. We have done something similar, just that it is difficult for us to own it up. She preaches what she practices. She knows she is wrong and she is she honest. That’s the reason the audience connected with her.”
The actress currently awaits the release of Tadka – the Hindi remake of the Malayalam movie Salt N Pepper directed by Prakash Raj and will soon commence work on Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla which will see her reuniting with Amitabh Bachchan after Pink.
