Neeraj Pandey’s Baby, which starred Akshay Kumar in the lead was one of the best spy thrillers of Bollywood and got tremendous acclaim from all quarters. One of the most well received characters was that of Shabana Kaif (played by Taapsee Pannu), and encouraged by the response, Pandey decided to make a spin off based on the character, which has been titled Naam Shabana.
The trailer and the promos of Naam Shabana have also been received well, which has now encouraged the filmmaker to plan more spin offs on the characters from the film. According to reports, Neeraj Pandey is now planning to make films focussed on other pivotal characters played by Rana Daggubati, Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher and Danny Denzongpa. Anupam Kher has also expressed his keen interest to Akshay Kumar and the entire ‘Baby’ team that the next spin-off must be made on his character, Shuklaji.
Well, it will sure be interesting to watch how these ideas develop. In the meantime, we can’t wait to witness the story of Shabana.
Naam Shabana is scheduled to release on 31st March, 2017.
