"Granted that Naam Shabana takes a risk by building an action-packed tale around a woman. But the film is forced to hedge its bets by letting the Akshay Kumar cameo get bigger than cameos are usually meant to be," wrote Saibal Chatterjee in his review for Taapsee's film.
Naam Shabana is a spin-off of Neeraj Pandey's 2015 film Baby, which starred Akshay Kumar in the lead. Naam Shabana is directed by Shivam Nair and produced by Mr Pandey. Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpayee and Prithviraj Sukumaran are Taapsee's co-stars while Akshay features in a cameo.
This week, Vidya Balan's much-anticipated film Begum Jaan hits the screens. The Srijit Mukherji-directed film is based on the Partition era and Vidya stars as brothel 'madam.'
