Aniruddha Guha, one of the screenplay writers of Taapsee Pannu starrer Rashmi Rocket, revealed that he began to write the film even before Thappad and Saand Ki Aankh did not release. The writer, who is currently busy with four web series, spoke to IANS in a recent interaction about the film.

He thinks that it’s high time we create female protagonists who will be treated equally with male heroes. He also revealed that he wrote Taapsee’s character the way he would have written any male hero. The whole idea was to create someone who is strong, unapologetic and a fighter, not a victim, he said.

Rashmi Rocket is all about the gender tests on female athletes and the discrimination faced by them. Centring around Taapsee’s character, the movie is helmed by Akarsh Khurana and the story is written by Nandha Periyasamy, while Aniruddha penned the screenplay.

Aniruddha, who started his career as a journalist and film critic, turned to a story writer later. When asked if watching a film as a critic would bring anything extra to the table, he replied it is the reflection of his sensibility as an individual. The filmmaker called himself a film enthusiast and the same will be portrayed in his writings, according to him. He also emphasised on bringing sensibility of the storyteller to the table in the first place.

While speaking about his upcoming projects, the writer said he is currently associated with Shershaah director Vishnu Vardhan for a web series. He will be writing two seasons of it. He also seems to be working on a real-life incident for OTT, which will be officially announced soon.
