The actress recently spoke with SRK and the director of ‘Dunki’, Rajkumar Hirani.

“The first thing I was told when I signed the film was that I will have to prepare for ‘Dunki’. They said your Punjabi and Hindi is great but you will also have to learn wrestling. So I said, I will finally become a heroine and romance Shah Rukh Khan after doing 5-6 sports movies,” Taapsee said.
