Taapsee Pannu all praises for the Baby star, Akshay Kumar
Khiladi Akshay Kumar continues to ace his game as the action hero, as co-star Taapsee Pannu shares how it was scary to do a combat movie with Akshay as he’s a force to be reckoned with.
Taapsee will be seen in the lead role in Naam Shabana, which features Akshay in an extended cameo. “I was getting trained by people Akshay had assigned for me. They were taskmasters. He was not present during the training period so I don’t know how he is on ground. But he sets the expectation meter very high and it is very intimidating to do an action film where he also is a part of the film as people expect that level of action,” Taapsee revealed.
Taapsee further went on to praise her co-star: “He is the calmest person I have ever met. He doesn’t get angry. He is extremely calm in contrary to the image that he has on screen of an action star. One thing which is common between him and his films is that his sense of humour. The kind of films he chooses sets the standard high for actors. I look up to the lifestyle he follows, the way he conducts himself and the causes he supports are really good.”
Produced by Neeraj Pandey, the film is a spin-off from the 2015 film Baby with Taapsee reprising her role as Shabana.
Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher and Prithviraj Sukumaran are in the supporting roles. Naam Shabana releases in cinemas this Friday – 31st March 2017.
