‘Naam Shabana‘, the prequel will focus on the formative years of Shabana Khan. Akshay Kumar is said to be playing a cameo of sorts in the film. However, the new trailer of Naam Shabana promises that Akshay might have a meatier role in the film.
‘Naam Shabana’ is a spin-off of 2015’s ‘Baby’. It was Taapsee Pannu’s eight-minute sequence in Baby that so impressed the makers that they decided to make a full-fledged film with her.
‘Naam Shabana’, directed by Shivam Nair, besides Akshay and Taapsee, features Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa and Madhurima Tuli reprising their roles from the first film.
This time, the antagonist is played by Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran, who will be essaying the role of Tony, an international arms dealer.
Naam Shabana is scheduled to release in theatres on March 30 in Dubai.
