have worked with one of the most successful commercial directors and that's why we are in a safe zone," the 25-year-old said here Monday on the sets of reality show India's Best Dramebaaz.

A remake of the 1981-classic Chashme Buddoor, which had Farooque Sheikh, Deepti Naval, Rakesh Bedi and Ravi Baswani, the new version also stars Ali Zafar, Divyendu Sharma and Siddharth. It is set for a Friday release.

Taapsee, who has stepped into Deepti Naval's shoes, hopes to get appreciation from the audience.

"It is my first film and be ready to see a new girl in Bollywood," she said and added that she hopes "to get more opportunities and appreciation".

"I am nervous because it's my first Bollywood film but I am confident as well because we have put in a lot of hard work," added the actress who featured in southern movies like Tamil movie Aadukalam and Telugu film Veera.
