For someone who is still finding their in Bollywood to have got a Khan or one of the A – listers work in their film is a great deal! Taapsee Pannu, who was seen doing a cameo in Akshay Kumar’s Baby has managed to get the superstar do a cameo in her next film – Naam Shabana. She worked with him in Baby and the actor along with Neeraj Pandey – the director of the film were so impressed with her performance that they decided to make a prequel with her. Now this doesn’t really happen to a lot of actors. So in a way, Taapsee is kinda fortunate to have found someone in Bollywood who has recognised her talent and what she is capable of.

In an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife, Taapsee said, “Obviously it feels that you are going in the right direction first of all.. and then I really wanna be thankful and I especially need to thank these kind of names like Akshay sir, he didn’t really need to do this and he came on board not just as a cameo because he was a part of Baby but also as a producer in this film. So he didn’t really have to do it but I think the belief in me that he wanted to bet his money in me, because that’s basically a producer’s job, so that makes me feel really important and special because someone like him wants to back me up. That’s a beautiful feeling. I think I am going in the right direction, no matter how much I say would be less when it comes to thanking Neeraj sir and Akshay sir for backing me so early in my career. So I mean ya, this is almost like a dream that I never thought would happen to me also, so ya, thankful to them.”

Directed by Neeraj Pandey and produced by Akshay, Naam Shabana also stars Manoj Bajpayee in lead roles. The film will be releasing on March 31.
