Badla releases on March 8.
After the debacle of Zero, Shah Rukh Khan has not really announced his new project. However, speculations surrounding his extended cameo in Amitabh Bachchan-Taapsee Pannu starrer Badla and Rajkummar Rao's Mental Hai Kya have been doing the rounds for a long time. King Khan has neither accepted nor denied the rumours, leaving people to speculate further. The interesting fact here is that SRK is bankrolling Badlaunder his production house Red Chillies Entertainment and yet we aren't aware of his role in the film.
Although, when we recently met Tapsee Pannu during the promotions of Badla, we asked her about Shah Rukh Khan's cameo in the film. And here's what she said- "That is the thriller and that is the question. You have to buy the tickets, go to the theatre and watch the film to know if he has a cameo." Well, just like director Sujoy Ghosh, Taapsee didn't reveal about SRK's part in Badla.
Moving on, when we asked the actress about her character, Taapsee added, "No, I did not prep. I read the role/character and I fell in love with it. I wanted to do this character only, I was pitched something else but I wanted to do this one. I was more than ready to do it, it was an instant yes from my side. Sujoy just had to give me the right lines, direction and I was ready to go." For those unversed, Taapsee plays the role of Naina, a strong headed business woman.
