Actors Tapsee Pannu and Bhumi Phednekar both have been known for playing strong female characters in movies and now that they are coming together in ‘Saandh Ki Ankh’.
Tapsee and Bhumi’s upcoming film "Saand Ki Aankh" is based on old sharpshooters - Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar.
Taapsee took to Twitter, to share a still of herself and Bhumi and captioned it: "And the curtains drop on this one. One word that will come in my mind when I think of 'Saand Ki Aankh' will be ‘conviction'. Saying goodbye is not my forte... so I walk away after packup leaving a piece of my heart with this ‘family' forever and ever."
Later, the "Naam Shabana" actress posted another photograph of the accessories her character donned in the film. Along with it, she wrote: "Prakashi Tomar you will live in me forever and ever."
Bhumi, who will play Chandro in the film, shared a photograph of herself along with Taapsee and the film's director Tushar Hiranandani.
"Some goodbyes are so tough," she wrote.
She shared another image of herself in which she is seen hiding her face.
She captioned it: "Name-Chandro Tomar. Age 65 years. Profession-Mother, Grandmother and Sharp Shooter. She will always and forever be a part of me."
Chandro, 87, and Prakashi, 82, are from Uttar Pradesh's Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their fifties. Chandro, who is fondly called shooter 'dadi', is among the world's oldest female sharpshooters. The film ‘Saandh ki aankh’ will mark writer Hiranandani's debut as a director. It will also be jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar. "Saand Ki Aankh" also features Prakash Jha and Vicky Kadian in pivotal roles.
Tapsee and Bhumi`s character have strong background and look very interesting. Let’s just hope it is as action packed as we think it is because fans can not wait for its release.
