Akshay Kumar will make a special appearance in the movie
Akshay Kumar starrer 2015 hit movie Baby will now have a prequel to it. Yes you heard it right. Taapsee Pannu who played a small but important role in this movie earlier will now be the leading lady of this movie. As a result the movie won’t revolve around Akshay’s character and he will make a special appearance in the movie since his good friend Neeraj Pandey would be directing this version too. Akshay’s bond with Neeraj goes back a long way which is why the director wanted him to be a part of the Baby prequel.
Taapsee will be joined by stars like Manoj Bajpayee and Prithviraj who was also seen in Aiyyaa. The plot of the prequel will revolve around the reason why she becomes an undercover agent.There would also be another actor who will be a part of the film who is yet to be finalised. The film is all set to be titled Meera and will be written by Shivam Nair. While talking to a leading daily, Taapsee said, “I play the titular role in this action thriller and I am undergoing training in martial arts to prepare for the action scenes.”
So why is Akshay not a part of this prequel? A sources tells us that, the Rustom star is all for women’s safety and encourages them to start training in mixed martial arts for self defence. He runs a foundation that imparts such training to women. He now wants to produce a female-oriented action flick for the longest time. So, it was his idea that Baby 2 should have a woman protagonist. He loved what Taapsee had done in that hotel action sequence in Baby and he asked Neeraj to go ahead with her.
