Lady Luck is smiling on former ‘Miss India’ Tapasee. The pretty lady from Punjab, who’s making her debut as a heroine in Kollywood with Vetrimaran’s yet-to-release Aadukalam, has already signed her second film. She will now be paired opposite Jeeva in Vandaan Vendraan, directed by Kannan (of Jeyam Kondaan and Kandein Kadhalai fame).
Says Kannan, “We’d earlier approached Tamannaah for the film, but she didn’t have dates until next year. Then, we saw Tapasee’s performance in Aadukalam and were really impressed. She wanted to wait till her debut flick released, but we convinced her to sign our movie.”
The film will go on the floors in Mumbai in August. “After completing the shoot for Ko, Jeeva will start filming with us. Tapasee will join the unit in September. While I’m retaining most of the crew of Kandein Kadhalai, I’m yet to finalise a music director. But it will definitely be someone established,” he says.
