It is hard not to associate reel with real when we are so obsessed with Bollywood. A day before the second trailer of Naam Shabana landed, the news emerged that Akshay Kumar has donated Rs 1.08 crore to families of Indian Army martyrs. And today, we see him as a special agent who is ready to sacrifice his life for his country. Along with him is film’s Shabana, Taapsee Pannu, Anupam Kher reprising his role as the doom-and-gloom Shukla and Manoj Bajpayee. Together, they have presented us with Naam Shabana trailer which is high on action, edge-of-the-seat moments and quotable dialogues. As we say in Bollywood, paisa vasool.
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. The film is directed by Shivam Nair, and has Akshay Kumar reprising his role as Ajay Singh Rajput in a cameo. The film also stars Prithviraj Sukumaran as the bad guy.

Akshay Kumar shared the trailer with the caption, “Want to know how Shabana became a part of Team Baby?Watch the new #NaamShabanaTrailer to know Her Story Before Baby!”
Taapsee’s intense training in the mixed martial arts is what we got to see in the first trailer of the film. But in this one, we got to see more punch and action sequences done by other cast members of the film too. Prithviraj said about the film, “All the fight in the film is because of my character, and that is all I can say.”
Before sharing this new trailer, Taapsee took to Twitter and wrote, “You know the promotions are on full swing when u start catching early morning flights. To Delhi for The New Trailer Of Naam Shabana! 👊🏼.” The 49-year-old Akshay too took to his Twitter handle to say, “Are you guys ready for another peek into the life of Shabana? New #NaamShabanaTrailer will be out tomorrow at 12 noon. Stay tuned!”

Speaking about the difference between her and her character, Taapsee said in a recent interview, “It is said that a lady always has her sixth sense very much active. And so lady spies are more helpful as professionals. But I am gullible in real life. I just don’t have the patience and energy to waste time in order to spy someone in real. So this was a challenging character to me.”
Naam Shabana is scheduled to hit the theatres on March 31.The movie is produced by Neeraj Pandey.
