The makers of the Prequel of Baby starring Taapsee Pannu in the lead role, have apparently roped in Manoj Bajpayee and Prithviraj for important roles in the movie.
The prequel will be based on Taapsee’s character; focussing more on how she became a raw agent. Titled ‘Meera’, the film will be helmed by Shivam Nair and not Neeraj Pandey. Akshay Kumar will have an extended cameo playing a RAW agent.
Prithviraj starred in 2012’s Aiyya and 2013’s Auranzeb, while Manoj Bajpayee was seen in Traffic, Aligarh and Budhia Singh: Born To Run in 2016.
Pannu will go under immense martial arts training for the action thriller. The film will begin shooting in Mumbai from end of September.
Taapsee quoted on the news saying, “It’s almost too good to believe that I’m getting to play title role in my career so early. I was told about this film almost an year back but I never believed it. Now finally it’s happening and I am ready to get trained in some intensive martial art form for an out n out action thriller.”
The south star will be seen next in the upcoming court-room drama Pink along with Amitabh Bachchan, Kirti Kulhari, and Andrea Tariang. The movie will hit the screens on 16 September 2016.
