Taapsee Pannu starrer NAAM SHABANA is likely to become a trendsetter. First of all, NAAM SHABANA is not a sequel to Neeraj Pandey’s 2015 solid action thriller BABY that starred Akshay Kumar, Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa, Anupam Kher and introduced Taapsee Pannu as a kick ass actor who can emote and break bones at ease. The Shivam Nair directed action thriller is a ‘spin off’.


Spin off is a new term in Bollywood where a known character from a popular film is promoted as a lead protagonist and the story revolves around her with other characters from the original also retained but in support of the spin off lead. This is different from the sequels like DABANGG or SINGHAM and series like GOLMAAL.

According to our sources close to the makers of NAAM SHABANA, the movie is likely to spearhead the spin off movement in Bollywood and after exploring Shabana from BABY in NAAM SHABANA (the name of Taapsee Pannu’s character in BABY), Jai Singh Rathore (Rana Daggubati), Feroze Khan (Danny Denzongpa) or Shukla ji (Anupam Kher) can be considered. 

Hollywood is known for its spin offs like Hugh Jackman‘s starrer THE WOLVERINE (2013), MINIONS (2015). NAAM SHABANA starring Taapsee is all set to become a trend in Bollywood spin off genre.

Certainly, Taapsee Pannu is a girl on the roll, after the remarkable success of PINK, the actress is poised for another landmark in NAAM SHABANA.
