Actor Taapsee Pannu, who won critical acclaim for Pink, is gearing up for her next release Ghazi, which she says will be one of its kind.

“I am very proud to a part of that film (Ghazi). It’s going to be one of its kind... India’s first submarine film based on a real incident of how the (Pakistani) Ghazi submarine was sunk,” said Taapsee over phone from Hyderabad.

To be helmed by Sankalp Reddy, the film, which also stars Baahubali: The Beginning star Rana Daggubati, is touted to be India’s first submarine film which will be about the sinking of PNS Ghazi, a Pakistani submarine.

Talking about her role in Ghazi, the 29-year-old actor said: “I play a Bangladeshi refugee and the film is due to release soon. I think it is undergoing some graphic work... It is the only period film I have done so far.”

But it is unlike other period dramas, she said.

“It is not a regular costume drama period film. It is something really interesting,” added Taapsee, without divulging any more details.
