Opening Day Collection
‘Naam Shabana’ is a spy thriller ﬁlm which is very unique in every way. Neeraj Pandey is the maker of the ﬁlm so it has a certain level of excitement in the audience for
its story. We see Akshay Kumar and few more playing cameos in the ﬁlm. The ﬁlm is set to release on 31 March, 17.
After mesmerising all with her stellar performance in Shoojit Sircar’s Pink, Taapsee Pannu is back— with a bang! ‘Naam Shabana’ is a ﬁrst of its kind in Indian Cinema, with a woman spy. Taapsee impresses with her action while Akki makes an appearance towards the end of the trailer and packs a punch with his dialogues. Naam Shabana showcases Shabana’s journey, portrayed by Taapsee Pannu, of becoming an undercover agent and highlights her intense martial arts training sessions and action stunts.
The Khiladi actor also trained Taapsee for the ﬁlm, which is India’s ﬁrst spin-off , based on her character in ‘Baby’. Taapsee’s intense training in the mixed martial arts has surely helped the actor with her stunt sequences, choreographed by Hollywood stunt director, Cyril Raffaelli. The trailer is equal parts action and drama — spotlighting Taapsee’s transformation from a civilian to an agent. Shabana is trained by Ajay Singh Rajput, and theme of the ﬁlm seems to be Shabana’s revenge.
Taapsee’s caliber comes across as an actor in every frame. The trailer has managed to keep audiences at the edge of their seats, wondering about Shabana’s mission and the intelligence agency’s intentions.
