Mumbai: Taapsee Pannu, who makes her Bollywood debut with 'Chashme Buddoor' remake, says shooting for David Dhawan directed film was so much fun that she and her co-star felt they were on a picnic.

"It was an entertainment zone. We shot in Goa and it was like a picnic, a paid holiday for us. We 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 on 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'.
