Actor Taapsee Pannu is turning producer. After working for more than a decade in Indian cinema, Taapsee adds another milestone in her career, as she launches her production house Outsiders Films. For Outsiders Films, she has joined forces with Pranjal Khandhdiya who is a content creator and producer for over 20 years. As her first venture, the actress will co-produce her next film.
According to the sources, “Taapsee Pannu will co-produce the Hindi remake of Spanish psychological thriller, Julia’s Eyes. The actress is headlining the project and it will be her first co-production. It stars Gulshan Devaiah as well. The makers will make an official announcement soon.”
After Bollywood Hungama‘s report, it was confirmed that Taapsee will co-produce Blurr. Written by Pawan Sony and Ajay Bahl, the film arrives in theatres in 2022. Director Ajay Bahl shares, “Blurr is a thought-provoking and intriguing story which really excited me as a director. This association with Zee Studios and Taapsee will surely make Blurr a memorable film for me. With the massive scale it promises and the narrative it brings along I believe Blurr will not only be a power-packed entertainer, but it will stay with the audience too. The reason being, it is not only an arresting psychological thriller but it also has an intriguing social context.”
Shariq Patel, Chief Business Officer, Zee Studios shares, “We are happy to share the first look of our project with the audience. It’s exciting to see Taapsee and Ajay, two of the most creative people come together to create magic with Blurr.

After delivering many successful thrillers herself, Taapsee Pannu turns a producer with her partner Pranjal Khandhdiya from Outsiders Films. She shares, “Blurr is the just kind of script I was waiting for. I’m delighted to be finally turning a producer with this film and with the support of co-producers and team, I’m sure it’s going to be an enriching journey. Collaborating with Ajay is as exciting as it gets as I’ve seen his work. He is the best to bring the gripping story of Blurr on-screen”.
Vishal Rana from Echelon Productions shares, “Blurr is one of the best scripts I’ve ever read. Being a big fan of thrillers myself, I wanted to make this film in a certain way that would amaze the audiences. With Ajay Bahl directing and Taapsee leading the star cast, we have been blessed with the best talent from the industry coming together to make this film. With Zee Studios, we found the perfect partners and now we can’t wait to take this amazing journey of making this film together”.
The Spanish thriller is directed by Guille Morales. The film tells the story of a woman who’s slowly losing her sight whilst trying to investigate the death of her twin sisters. Julia’s Eyes is also being remade in Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, and Marathi languages. This will be Taapsee‘s second Spanish remake after Badla (2019) which was a remake of The Invisible Guest.
