Model turned actress Taapsee Pannu has been roped in for a film “Meera” by Neeraj Pandey productions, whose previous movies like “Special 26” and “Baby ” became massive hits at the box office and earned splendid reviews.

The story of the film revolves around Taapsee who plays the title role “Meera” in the movie that reveals the backstory of how she becomes a special agent of the Indian Government. The film will be directed by Shivam Nair and will also have Akshay Kumar and Manoj Bajpayee in pivotal roles. The film is believed to be a prequel to the film “Baby”.

Taapsee will have to undergo intense training for her role as the film is meant to have several stunts in and will begin shooting in Mumbai from the end of September.

Taapsee quoted on the news, “It’s almost too good to believe that I’m getting to play a title role so early in my career. I was told about this film almost an year ago but I never believed it. Now finally it’s happening and I am ready to get trained in some intensive martial art form for an out and out action thriller.”
