The team of film Baby is back together for another mission led by Shabana Khan which was played by Taapsee Pannu. to take forward the legacy of unique movies with an impact.
Akshay Kumar and Tapsee Pannu starrer Baby released in 2015 and gave Tapsee the much awaited recognition. Neeraj Pandey’s directorial Baby had proven to be a hit among the audience.
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 who played Ajay Singh Rajput, Anupam Kher as Shukla Ji, Rana Daggubati played Jai Singh Rathore and Danny Denzongpa as Feroze Khan. The film is one of the pioneers in a new era of action-thrillers for Indian cinema.
Neeraj Pandey adds, "I remember sharing this idea of a spinoff with the principal crew and cast and the one thing that struck me was that everyone was extremely positive and inquisitive about what all could be done with it. Each one of us felt that this was that just needed to be told. Shivam's take on this story is a treat for the audience that liked Baby."
With Naam Shabana, the team heads off for more daring missions as they put country before self just like in Baby. The spin-off will see new characters emerge which are played by Manoj Bajpayee and Prithiviraj Sukumaran who joined the Baby team for this film.
Neeraj Pandey's Naam Shabana directed by Shivam Nair is all set to release on March 31, 2017.
