The Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar is all set to be seen in
'Naam Shabana' alongside Taapsee Pannu and while Akshay doesn't
need much training for the action-packed scenes, Taapsee is being
trained by professionals to deliver stunts and power-packed
sequences. When asked about the training process, she revealed that
she's paired alongside the best and that makes her feel intimidated

action film where he also is a part of the film as people expect
that level of action."
Taapsee Pannu also praised Akshay Kumar by saying, "He is the

She further commented, "The presence of Akshay in both the
trailer and the film, helps as he is a big star. His presence be it
on the poster, in the trailer or the film is going to benefit."
