Really? Taapsee Pannu’s character in ‘Baby’ was meant to serve as a teaser for ‘Naam Shabana’
The trailer of Taapsee Pannu-starrer ‘Naam Shabana’ is out and it has impressed one and all with each and every frame. Be it the kickass performance that Taapsee promises along with other seasoned actors, or the storyline, it is a thriller everyone is waiting for. While we all are aware of the fact that ‘Naam Shabana’ is a prequel to Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Baby’, and one might wonder that Taapsee’s character Shabana was fleshed out in whole post the success of ‘Baby’, one might not know that ‘Naam Shabana’ was very much decided at the time of the release of ‘Baby’.
Yes, in reality, the character of Shabana in ‘Baby’ was just a sneak peek or teaser of what was to come in the form of Taapsee’s full-fledged role in ‘Naam Shabana’. (Also Read: ‘Zinda’ from ‘Naam Shabana’ is the life anthem that motivates you to rise after each fall)
While the audience was astounded by Taapsee fierce avatar in ‘Baby’, ‘Naam Shabana’ will witness her in a full-blown action-packed role, which completely traverses her journey from being a simple woman to a kickass RAW agent.
Just as ‘Baby’ saw a tease of what ‘Naam Shabana’ would be, likewise, in this spin-off which has already created a stir amongst moviegoers, the actors of ‘Baby’ too will be making an appearance, extended or otherwise, in their respective parts. Be it Akshay Kumar as Ajay Singh Rajput, Anupam Kher as Om Prakash Shukla, Danny Denzongpa as Feroze Khan, or Rana Daggubati as Jai Singh Rajput, they all will be there sharing space with Taapsee’s Shabana.
Apart from the recurring cast, we would also see new members coming aboard this spy-thriller. Manoj Bajpayee and Prithviraj Sukumaran too have come aboard as the mission gets darker and grittier in this movie wherein the agents will again selflessly put themselves in the line of fire to save the country.
