Sony Pictures India & Ellipsis Entertainment’s LOOOP LAPETA, thriller-comedy with @TahirRajBhasin. An adaptation of Run Lola Run (sic).”She also added, “Right, so here’s yet another announcement from my stable. I’m on a roll. Or shall I say in a looop? Stoked to announce Sony Picture India and Ellipsis Entertainment’s crazy thriller-comedy, LOOOP LAPETA, an adaptation of the cult classic Run Lola Run.
