Taapsee Pannu launches production house Outsiders Films, first ‘Blurr’ project


Bombay: Actress Taapsee Pannu announced her first feature film “Blurr” on Thursday, which will be released under her Outsiders Films banner.

Billed as a “siege edge thriller”, “Blurr” will be directed by Ajay Bahl, known for films like “BA Pass” and “Section 375”.

Pannu, who announced the film on Twitter, said she supports the project with Zee Studios and Echelon Productions.

“And here’s the first from slate. Thrill to the height of the thrill! #BLURR! @ZeeStudios_ #OutsidersFilms & @echelonmumbai reunite for siege edge thriller. Directed by #AjayBahl,” she wrote .

Bahl co-wrote the story for “Blurr” with Pawan Sony. Param Gill and Kabir Lal are credited as co-producers.

Pannu, known for her critically acclaimed performances in Hindi-language films such as ?? Pink ??, ?? Mulk ??, ?? Manmarziyaan ??, and ?? Thappad ??, has teamed up with producer Pranjal Khandhdiya to launch Outsiders Films.

In an interview with PTI, the 33-year-old actor said the decision to go into film production was organic.

“I was very sure directing wasn’t my cup of tea. Production was something I thought I could pull off. As an actor, I love acting, I couldn’t take my attention away and focus on something else when I’m on a set.

“So the day I have a partner who could handle the floor work, while I focus on my acting job, that’s when I partner up and start a production. “where Pranjal came in,” Pannu said.

Khandhdiya has been a producer of films like “Super 30”, “Piku” and the actor’s upcoming “Rashmi Rocket”.

Pannu said she was excited to expand her horizons as a producer.

“I didn’t think twice when Pranjal asked me if I would like to partner with him. And from there, I was never really stressed out about the practicality of things and happily jumped into this new label of being a producer. ??

The actor said she started the production house with the intention of championing projects she firmly believes in.

“One thing that Pranjal and I have maintained is that I will only produce the kind of movies that I’m a part of. It doesn’t mean that I have to be a part of every movie that I produce. It means the kind of movies that I’m a part of. I will produce are the ones people know me for as an actor.

“That continuity and consistency will be there because I can’t give a film the green light unless I believe I’m an audience for it,” she said.

The Delhi-born actor also said Outsiders Films was a fitting name for his production house.

?? Pranjal and I both come from humble backgrounds, that’s when the name Outsiders Films clicked with us. We aim to produce meaningful, entertaining and quality content? she added.

It is not known if Pannu will star in “Blurr”, which is set to be released in 2022.

The actor has a series of films coming up, including Hindi titles ?? Looop Lapeta ??, ?? Dobaaraa ??, ?? Shabaash Mithu ??, and a Telugu film ?? Mishan Impossible ??.

She was seen more recently in “Haseen Dillruba”.
