For all those who felt Akshay Kumar’s BABY should be a franchise of many such espionage films, we’ll you are in luck. The grapevine has it, a prequel of BABY is in the pipe line. Director Neeraj Pandey has been planning for a prequel of the film with actress Taapsee Pannu who was also a part of BABY. The film revolves around the life of a RAW agent.
The movie will be directed by Shivam Nair and will be based on the story of female lead played by Taapsee Pannu. The flick will give a backstory about Taapsee’s character in BABY and Akshay will be playing a key character in it.
The source says, “BABY was always supposed to be a franchise. Akshay and Neeraj were planning a sequel, but they will begin that only when they have a solid script in hand. As for this film, Neeraj discussed it with Akshay during the making of RUSTOM. Akki liked the role, which has a connect to BABY, and agreed to do it.”
Meanwhile Akshay already has an impressiveline-up of films – Rustom, 2.0, Jolly Llb 2, Namaste England and Kaththi remake.
