Unbelievable! Taapsee Pannu’s Complete Workout Regime for Naam Shabana!

Taapsee Pannu’s single fight sequence in Baby left the audience in awe of her capability to be able to kick some serious ass on screen! Otherwise known to portray a more lighter funny quirkier side of her off screen, Taapsee Pannu earned great reviews for her singular sequence in Baby and righteously earned herself the titular lead role in the official prequel of the film with Naam Shabana. As the dil gears up for release and from what one can see in the rushes and previews, Taapsee has surpassed one’s expectations to build a whole new space for a female action heroine! Her stunts, actions and moves in the film are beyond impressive. But one wonders what did it really take for her to learn this and build the strength/endurance to portray this powerful undercover agent on screen. Here’s a look at her fitness schedule which she adapted to for the film’s training!
