Starring Taapsee Pannu and Akshay Kumar in a cameo role, Naam Shabana is in cinemas now
Neeraj Pandey’s directorial Baby had proven to be a hit amongst the audience when it released in 2015. Now the team is back together for another mission led by Shabana Khan played by Taapsee Pannu.
Naam Shabana has the unique distinction of being India’s first spin-off of a successful franchise. Taapsee’s character had resonated in an impactful manner with Baby’s audience and the same character is now spun-off into a full-length film of its own.
Baby had several memorable characters like Akshay Kumar playing Ajay Singh Rajput, Anupam Kher playing Shuklaji, Rana Daggubati playing Jai Singh Rathore and Danny Denzongpa playing Feroze Khan. The film was credited by many as ushering in a new era of action-thrillers for Indian cinema.
With Naam Shabana, the team heads off for more daring missions as they put their country before themselves, yet again. The spin-off will see new characters emerge with Manoj Bajpayee and Prithiviraj Sukumaran. Directed by Shivam Nair, Naam Shabana is in cinemas today.
