Taapsee Pannu who is prominently seen working in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil films is currently shooting her upcoming film, Annabelle Subramaniam with Vijay Sethupathi and director Deepak Sundarajan. The actress has now bagged yet another sci-fi movie to herself.
Taapsee Pannu will be playing the lead role in a pan-Indian sci-fi film, directed by the thriller movie K-13's director, Barath Neelkantan. Talking about the movie, a source revealed that, “the movie will be a science-fiction film that deals with aliens; in fact, its title will be Alien. But the story will be a fresh take on the genre. It will not have any influence on the many Hollywood alien films we have seen so far. The director has come up with a premise that explores how aliens might be in a country like India.”
As per the reports, the untitled film will be high on the budget and VFX effects. The director, Barath Neelkantan has also revealed that the team of this upcoming film has already begun the prep work but when the shooting will commence is still unclear.

Thus, leading him to try this new sci-fi genre.
