Taapsee Pannu is awaiting the release of her film Naam Shabana, India’s first ever spin-off featuring a leading lady. The movie is all set to hit the screens on March 31 and Taapsee has been busy promoting the film. She has earlier spoken about how tough the stunt sequences in the film were and how it was physically taxing. With the release of her training video, one can see the amount of work that has gone into the stunt choreography and performance.
Taapsee shared this on her Twitter page and said, “The blood and sweat that went in the making of this SPY #NaamShabana.”
The punches, kicks and blocks are all real, says the stunt choreographer of the film. Taapsee is seen performing elbow jabs, high kicks, painful looking punches with ease. It all looks quite real and plausible. If one remembers Baby, the parent movie of Naam Shabana, it was also welcomed warmly for its realistic approach towards fight sequences and stunts in general. And it looks like Taapsee didn’t think she will come of the training alive. She is seen perspiring and taking deep breaths as she said, “If I stay alive after two more weeks, I shall see you at the shoot and then in the theatres, with Naam Shabana.”
