Taapsee says ‘Looop Lapeta’ is one of the quirkiest comedies she has ever read
Talking to Mid-Day, Taapsee shared her experience with the film.
“Looop Lapeta is one of the quirkiest comedies I’ve ever read or seen in Indian cinema. It’s wonderful that it’s coming on Netflix because I would love the [OTT] audience to give it a shot,” she said.
She added that this is a film that the audience will be able to watch with an open mind.
This is not the first time that Taapsee’s film is coming on OTT. ‘Looop Lapeta’ will be Taapsee’s fourth film, which will be released on such a platform. Earlier, her films like ‘Haseen Dilruba’, ‘Annabelle Sethupathi’ and ‘Rashmi Rocket’ have also made their appearance on OTT.
Producer Atul Kasbekar revealed about the OTT release
Taapsee completed shooting in February. The film is directed by Akash Bhatia. Atul Kasbekar has produced the film.
Earlier this year, Atul had said, “Given the circumstances that we are in, it’s likely that we will look for an OTT premiere. It’s not locked in stone yet, but if there are huge films like Toofaan, Haseen Dillruba, and so on releasing on OTT, then now it’s cool to be one or the other.”
The film is a Hindi remake of a German film
‘Looop Lapeta’ will be a thriller comedy film, in which Tahir Raj will be seen in the lead role along with Taapsee.
The film is produced by Sony Pictures Films India, Ellipsis Entertainment, and Aayush Maheshwari. The film will be a Hindi remake of the 1998 German film ‘Run Lola Run’.
It was directed by Tom Tykwer. The film was also nominated for an Oscar.
This will be the story of Taapsee’s film
Taapsee had written in an Instagram post, “I ran behind some films and some have just thankfully fallen in my lap. This (Looop Lapeta) being the latter I couldn’t be more grateful to these guys and the luck line in my palm. From entering the narration with the idea to say No, to leaving it with an immediate Yes, thanks to these gentlemen for hanging by a solid script and concept for years and being more sure of me being Savi than I was.”
The film revolves around a woman who needs a million Deutschmarks (German currency) in 20 minutes to save her boyfriend’s life.
