Actress Taapsee Pannu has said she has a powerful role in her upcoming film Badla.

Pannu, on Monday (4 June), interacted with the media to promote her debut short film Nitishastra along with her co-actor Vicky Arora and director Kapil Verma.

Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan will be working together in director Sujoy Ghosh's tentatively titled Badla after their successful outing Pink (2016).

Talking about the film and her character of a business woman in it, Pannu said, "It's slightly more glamorized character than my earlier characters which I have played but it is not on the lines of my glamorous role in Judwaa 2."

Badla is a murder mystery produced by Sunir Kheterpal.

"It's a Sujoy Ghosh film, so there will not be only glamorous side to my character but it will be much more than that. It is going to be very powerful role again. We will start shooting of the film from 14 June."

Talking about her other upcoming projects, Pannu said, "Trailer of Soorma will be launched on 11 June and it will be released on 13 July. By the end of June, trailer of Mulk will be released and the movie will be released on 27 July. Manmarziyaan will be released on 7 September."

"It is going to be exciting year for me. I think 2018 is very critical year for me because I have tried to work in non-conventional films," she said.

Asked if she felt any difference while working in a short film as compared to full length feature film, Pannu said, "When Kapil (Verma) made it, I actually felt like I am on normal film set. I didn't get the feeling that it's a short film so, it has less production value and whatever. This made me very clear that there is market for short films and audience want to see it."

Apart from this, she will be also seen in Telugu film Neevevaroo which also stars Aadhi Pinisetty, and Ritika Singh in the lead roles.
