"Naam Shabana" is part of the "Baby" franchise and will have critically acclaimed actor Manoj Bajpayee and southern star Prithviraj in pivotal roles.
"This is one of the many firsts for me this year. Shooting action sequence in Malaysia. We have a major part of the film to be shot in Malaysia in which we will have almost the entire star cast of the film. It will surely be the biggest film for me for next year," Taapsee said in a statement.
The two actors will be shooting some extreme stunts for the film.
Neil laughs away trolls on engagement
Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh says he's laughing away at the social media trollers, who have been making fun of the news of his engagement.
Neil, who got engaged to Mumbai-based girl Rukmini Sahay on Dussehra earlier this week, on Friday tweeted a monochromatic photograph of himself and his 27-year-old fiancee. Trolling began soon after.
Reacting to them, Neil said with the photograph: "Needless to say we are laughing at the ones who are trying so hard to be funny...
I'm sure you guys wish well too with the sense of humour."
This is not the the first time Neil has been targeted on social media. He has often been trolled on social media over his name and his acting skills.
Art has no boundaries: Taapsee
Actress Taapsee, who has been receiving letters and mails of appreciation for her performance in "Pink" from India and abroad, says it proves art has no boundaries.
Taapsee has been receiving messages, mails, and letters from her fans for her effortless portrayal of a girl, who has wrongly been accused in a sexual harassment case.
"It's pretty interesting to receive letters and mails of appreciation from across borders. Truly art has no boundaries. There are so many heart-warming messages and mails from females from Middle-Eastern countries especially," Taapsee said in a statement.
The "Baby" actress says when she visited the Middle-East "a few days back for a quick get away, I met a few girls who walked up and expressed their love for 'Pink'".
The film, which has been lauded by a number of actors and critics, also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kriti Kulhari and Angad Bedi.
