MUMBAI : Tahir Raj Bhasin is all set to romance three top actresses on screen in the coming months — Taapsee Pannu in ‘Looop Lapeta’, Sonakshi Sinha in ‘Bulbul Tarang’, and Shweta Tripathi in ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein’. Tahir says Taapsee was the first actress he has been paired opposite romantically. “She is incredibly strong-willed and an instinctive actor. Working with her was great fun. She’s also the first actress who I’ve paired opposite romantically. The style and chemistry of our characters is truly cutting edge. I can’t wait for the audience’s reaction to them,” he said.

His film with Sonakshi is said to be inspired by a true story. “Sonakshi is so much at ease with her craft and has a riveting on-screen presence. I’m excited about the super script, and experimenting with the new romantic dynamic,” said Tahir.

Regarding Shweta, he said: “She has been a part of some epic films and digital series. Shweta really invests in her character and that’s all one wants from a co-star.” He described the Netflix series as a suspense thriller with a love story at heart. “We’re currently filming in MP and it’s been such a process of discovery as we explore the parts we’re playing, our chemistry, and the cities we are shooting in,” added Tahir. He has four back-to-back projects releasing this year including ‘83’, where he will play the legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. “Back to back shoots are exhilarating. It’s been a tight schedule but this has also been rewarding. After the quiet downtime we’ve all had last year, I’m ecstatic to be on multiple shoots,” he said.
