Southern actress Taapsee Pannu may have featured in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films but she is a Delhi-based Sikh girl and David Dhawan is introducing her in Bollywood with the "Chashme Baddoor" remake.
The director has coined a nickname for her - Sikhni from South.
In fact, Dhawan confused Rishi Kapoor when he introduced Taapsee to him as 'Sikhni from South' while shooting in Goa.
"Rishi looked a little puzzled and asked Taapsee why such an unusual name, which does not sound like a Sikh name, she replied, 'My aunt kept it'," said a source.
From then every one on the sets started calling her 'Sikhni from South'.
When asked about it, Taapsee laughed and said: "Both Davidji and Rishi uncle are Punjabis and maybe that is why he introduced me like this, but now it is a habit for him.
"He always introduces me like this only. Davidji is very sweet and I had a blast shooting for 'Chashme Baddoor' and this is the perfect launch pad any one could have asked for."
A remake of the 1981 film of the same name, the new version of "Chashme Baddoor" also stars actors Ali Zafar, Siddharth and Divyendu Sharma.
The film hits theatres April 5.
