Taapsee Pannu who was shooting for Akarsh Khurana's Rashmi Rocket in Gujarat, recently wrapped up the film's shoot. Later, the actress took to her Instagram page to pen a beautiful note in which she penned down her feelings post the film's wrap.
Taapsee began the post by writing, "Not sure if I have the time and space to explain how this film actually happened. From the basic storyline I heard in Chennai 3 years back to actually complete its filming against all odds in these challenging times. This was one hell of a driven team effort!"
She continued, "I'm going to reserve the details for later coz I'm sure we have many more battles to fight till the release but what I can say is this is one team that's gonna do it all with a smile and most effortlessly coz the captain of this ship @akvarious believes in working strictly in between chilling with bunch of friends on set, instead of the other way round. Producers @pranjalnk @nehaanand21 @rsvpmovies who are relentless and don't have the word 'quitting' in their dictionary. @nehapartimatiyanidop whose lens can transform any basic moment into whistle blowing big screen shot . Writers, cast, art, production design , so on n so forth the list is long."
"Baaki release ke time kahaaniya bataane mein mazaa ayega. For now drawing the curtains on #RashmiRocket and moving onwards n upwards coz this Rocket has left us sky bound ! #FilmWrap
#RashmiRocket," she concluded her post on an emtional role.
Director Akarsh Khurrana also took to Instagram to pen a heartfelt post that read, "Over two years ago, we watched a couple of movies together in a foreign land and chatted about an idea over a couple of lunches. That idea grew, became a document, and evolved into many drafts of a screenplay. We finished shooting this film last night. From Florence to Pune to Ranchi to Bhuj, this has been quite a journey, during which we braved a pandemic, among other things. And the one person this would have been impossible without is @taapsee. Her dedication, grit, and investment in the process kept us all going. She's an unstoppable tough cookie, and a source of much inspiration. So @taapsee, thank you. And all the very best for the million things you're doing in the near future. Fateh karo."
