Taapsee Pannu says she was star-struck by Shah Rukh Khan, recalls that he rehearses every scene 50 times: ” I would just zone out mid take ” Taapsee was recently opened up about her experience of working with the legend himself SRK , Taapsee and Shahrukh was paired in a recent release of “Rajkumar Hirani’s” ‘ Dunki ‘ and in a recent interview she spoke about the working style of SRK and how she was star-stuck with him
her words were; “Just like Bachchan sir, Shah Rukh sir loves to rehearse. He likes to rehearse a scene to the point that he is one with the dialogue and it becomes a part of his muscle memory. He is a theatre actor who became a film actor. So his way is more like going about rehearsing. And he is a trained actor also so our methods are quite opposite,”
Taapsee also said that she was worried if she would ever get an opportunity like this ever again and hence wanted to make the most out of it she said;. “Even another female actor might never get the opportunity to work in such a commercial film, which is a love story with Shah Rukh Khan. This was once in a lifetime,” she said. She acknowledged that she has her limitations in terms of being able to perform over two or three takes but in case of Dunki, she wanted to push past it. “Even though I knew that my limitation is to only give 2-3 takes, I really pushed. I was like even if he rehearses 50 times, I need to get energy and fuel from somewhere to keep going and I actually did,” she said. Taapsee laughed and added that she was afraid of getting fired from the film.
