Taapsee Pannu's film actually tracks the history behind secret agent Shabana Kaif, the character she played in 2015's Baby, also starring Akshay Kumar. The Bollywood khiladi returns to reprise his role with an extended cameo in Naam Shabana. In his review for NDTV Movies, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "Taapsee's phlegmatic action heroine act, which is helped along by a value-enhancing cameo by a swaggering Akshay Kumar, gives the film its occasional high points. But the billowy plot makes all the bluster - some of which comes from the spy chief (Manoj Bajpayee), an old agency hand (Anupam Kher) and Ajay Singh Rajput (Akshay's Baby character) - sound like a lot of unregulated hot air."
Directed by Shivam Nair, Naam Shabana has been produced by Neeraj Pandey, who helmed Baby. Naam Shabana done. Taapsee Pannu will next be seen in the upcoming comedy Judwaa 2, which is releasing in September.
