New Delhi: Fighter Taapsee Pannu will keep you hooked through the entire trailer of Naam Shabana. Taapsee features as Shabana Kaif, who is trained by a secret agency, in charge of national security.

Taapsee reprises her role as secret agent Shabana, who assisted Akshay Kumar's character Ajay Singh Rajput in a significantly deadly mission. The trailer suggests that Naam Shabana actually is the backstory for Akshay Kumar's Baby, with the spotlight on Taapsee's character. The trailer of Naam Shabana also reunites several other actors from Baby - Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa and Madhurima Tuli.

Earlier this month, Akshay Kumar described the character of Shabana very subtly as he tweeted: "Shabana reminds me of a quote: 'The only time a woman is helpless is when her nail polish is drying'."
The 29-year-old actress has trained extensively in mixed martial arts for the role of Shabana Kaif in the film, which has been shot in Mumbai and Malaysia. Directed by Shivam Nair and produced by Neeraj Pandey, Naam Shabana releases on March 31.
Taapsee Pannu was last seen in Amitabh Bachchan's Pink, and has films like The Ghazi Attack, Tadka and Judwaa 2 in the pipeline. Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar's Jolly LLB 2 is this week's big release.
