‘The image I have…’: Taapsee says Vikrant and Harshvardhan were 'scared' to do intimate scenes with her in 'Haseen Dillruba'

Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu recently revealed that she probably scared off her male co-stars Vikrant Massey and Harshvardhan Rane while doing intimate scenes during their upcoming film “Haseen Dillruba”.

The trailer, which was released earlier this month gave viewers a deeper look at the intriguing murder mystery.

The movie's engaging storyline filled with love, lust and murder, a brilliant background score, teases a love triangle, dark humour and a twisty whodunit.

Speaking about her steamy scenes with the two actors Taapsee was quoted by Hindustan Times stating that the guys looked very scared.

“I don't know, the image I have or what the problem was... But I used to go to Vinil and complain,” she said.

In an earlier interview with IANS, Pannu revealed that she was not the first choice of the upcoming mystery thriller "Haseen Dillruba". The actress claims the film came to her after all options were exhausted.

"'Haseen Dillruba' was a film I had a very gut feeling about the day I heard the basic idea from (writer) Kanika (Dhillon). Unfortunately, I wasn't the first choice for the film and it came to me after all their options were exhausted," Taapsee said.

She calls the film a candy in an actor's hand. "The good old saying that, if it's meant for you it will come to you stands true for this case. It's not just a beautifully written mystery, it has such wonderful characters, which is candy in an actor's hands," Taapsee said.

She added: "I am glad I got to experiment with my look and performance with this one because I am definitely not the go-to person for this kind of character conventionally, and we all love to take risks."

Vikrant calls the film a perfect blend of humour, quirk, revenge and romance. "I hope it surprises the audience as much as it surprised me when I heard it first. It was an enthralling experience shooting for," he said.

Harshvardhan feels honoured to be in the same frame with some of our "country's finest talent".

"Taapsee and Vikrant, have one thing in common I could never make out if they were joking or if they were serious. I always had to look for tiny nuances to understand the pretext," he added.

"Haseen Dilruba", directed by "Hasee Toh Phasee", helmer Vinil Mathew, will be released on Netflix.
