Helmed by Tushar Jalota, the social comedy also starred Nimrit Kaur and Yami Gautam and received a positive response from the audience. ‘Dasvi’ also bagged the Best Film, Web Original award. In the film, Abhishek portrayed the role of Ganga Ram Chaudhary, an ‘aathvi pass’ chief minister who is put behind bars for his involvement in a scam.
Nimrat played Bimla Devi, Chaudhary’s wife who takes over as chief minister while he is in jail. Yami held her own and drew praise in the role of IPS officer Jyoti Deswal. Produced by Dinesh Vijan under his banner Maddock Films, Jio Studios, and Bake My Cake Films, ‘Dasvi’ was released on OTT platforms Netflix and Jio Cinema on April 7.
Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu is gleaming with pride at her recent awards achievement. At the Filmfare OTT Awards 2022 recently, the ‘Thappad’ actor secured a win in the ‘Best Actor, Web Original Film (Female)’ category for her role in the film ‘Looop Lapeta’. Taking to Instagram, the 35-year-old announced her win in an elaborately worded post, which featured her snap along with her ‘Black Lady’.
“Ok, so this happened last night. #LooopLapeta was that film no one understood why i would want to do. Why would i want to touch a classic like Run Lola Run, why will i do another film where I’m running. I went into narration with an intent to say No and came out after giving an instant YES!” she wrote.
The actor proceeded to credit the producers, writers and director Aakash Bhatia for helping properly adapt the character ‘Lola’ from the original German experimental thriller to ‘Savi’ for their project.
“I don’t think I would’ve been half the Savi without this team. We actors do get a lot more credit than we deserve at times so this one is for the team #LooopLapeta,” she added.
Taapsee went on to call the film the ‘coolest’ she has ever done, with the ‘coolest bunch of people on set’.
Several fans and colleagues of the ‘Mission Mangal’ actor took to the comment section to leave heart emojis in her support and appreciation. “Congratulations,” actor Dia Mirza wrote.
“Black lady toh theek hai…but it’s the lady in black who makes us proud all the time. #AbNirvanaMileNaMileUskiShraddhaHai,” actor Abhilash Thapliyal wrote.
Abhilash was Taapsee’s co-star in the recently released horror-thriller film ‘Blurr’. In a separate Instagram post, the ‘Badla’ actor shared a snap of her three Filmfare figurines, which she secured in three consecutive years between 2020 and 2022.
And making her digital debut with a stellar performance in ‘Aranyak’, Raveena Tandon beat Madhuri Dixit for ‘The Fame Game’ and Sushmita Sen for ‘Arya’ to win the Filmfare OTT award for Best Actor, Series (Female): Drama.
Tandon played the character of female cop Kasturi Dogra in ‘Aranyak’. Raveena said, “Cradling the trophy in her arms, she dedicated her award to all the women in uniform, “The lady officers who risk their lives whether they are in traffic or in the police force or navy. This is for those women who balance their life, children, husband, In laws, homes, and goals and still achieve in their careers. More power to these women.”
Directed by Vinay Waikul, ‘Aranyak’ revolves around police officer Kasturi (played by Raveena) digging up skeletons and reviving a forgotten myth of a bloodthirsty, serial killing entity in the forest after a foreign teenage tourist disappears in a misty town. Ashutosh Rana, Parambrata Chatterjee, Zakir Hussain, Meghna Malik and Indraneil Sengupta also played the important roles in ‘Aranyak’, which was released on Netflix on December 10.
