"This is going to be a riveting thriller. It's Sujoy's favourite genre and I am yet another time out of my comfort zone which I actually enjoy the most," Taapsee said in a statement.
Taapsee, 30, said that she is going to explore a "new side" of herself with this character and film directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee is excited to share screen space with the megastar for the second time after "Pink".
She currently awaits the release of her forthcoming film "Soorma", a biopic on hockey player Sandeep Singh, directed by Shaad Ali, who has also helmed hit films like "Saathiya" and "Bunty Aur Babli".
