Tahir Raj Bhasin’s filming of the upcoming Looop Lapeta, which co-stars Taapsee Pannu, was highlighted by the most romantic stunt he has ever filmed in his career.
“Many of the romantic scenes in the movie were filmed in Goa, including one in which we kissed while suspended 10 feet in the air by cables! It was all part of a romantic ruse. “We spent our off days on the beach near our locations in old Goa, sampling the incredible seafood and bonding with the crew,” he said.
The Goa schedule was fantastic; just getting out of the capital, where we’d been under lockdown for the majority of last year, was a huge relief.
Working with Taapsee was a breeze for Tahir Raj Bhasin.
“Since carving out the romance of (their characters) Satya and Savi is such a core part of Looop Lapeta, we were both geared to breaking the ice as soon as possible,” says Taapsee. Her charming energy is infectious, and her smile is contagious. “It was effortless for me to interact with her and work with her right from our first look test together,” Tahir said.
Tahir believes that his combination with Taapsee’s USP is its rawness and “wild unpredictability.”
“I’d say rawness and an unpredictability that’s out of this universe. It’s like a dance duet when you have a romantic lead pair, and getting Taapsee in the playoffs is an electrifying feeling on set. I’m looking forward to seeing how the audience reacts to this. Satya and Savi’s relationship alternates between crazy attraction and visceral implosions, which is “exactly what makes the pairing so magnetic, comic, and yet relatable,” according to Tahir Raj Bhasin.
