After making a mark in the movies Bhavesh Joshi Superhero (2018), Once Again (2018) and the second season of the web-series Mirzapur, Priyanshu Painyuli will now be seen opposite Taapsee Pannu in Rashmi Rocket. This is his first project with the actress.

Sharing his happiness about working with Pannu, Painyuli said in a statement, “I was really excited to work with Taapsee when I heard she was playing Rashmi because I have always been an admirer of her work and her choices as an actor. We became friends from the day we met. She is in a true sense a cool, genuine and real person. You can connect with her easily. We used to chat about everything around the world. Keep pulling each other’s legs for random things which was definitely not for training purposes; it was just for fun.” 

The actor plays an army officer in the movie, so he had to train himself in a different way. “I had a great time shooting with her. We didn’t train together because she required a very different hard-core training for her running and I had to do weight training separately to look much bigger as an army officer. From Taapsee, I learnt how to be a disciplined committed and a [be] really hardworking actor,” added Painyuli. 

Rashmi Rocket is Akarsh Khurana’s next directorial venture after the highly acclaimed Karwaan (2018), which starred Irrfan Khan, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar. 

Rashmi Rocket will be released on Zee5 on 15 October.
