“After Naam Shabana, I hope they make Naam Shukla,” says Anupam Kher

“After Naam Shabana, I hope they make Naam Shukla,” says Anupam Kher

Baby was an instant success and Naam Shabana is showing promise. And Anupam Kher, who played the doom-and-gloom Shuklaji in both the films, would like to see a Naam Shukla next. Playing a tech wizard in both the films, the actor shares why he wants a full-fledged film on his character Shukla.

Naam Shabana is one of a kind film, which has never been attempted before. A character from a film (Baby) being transformed into a full-fledged commercial film, this gives me an optimistic hope that one day they will also make Naam Shukla. I would like to know from Neeraj (Pandey) why Shukla wears a wig,” Anupam Kher said with a smile.


The 61-year-old says that Naam Shabana is an exciting concept and hopes it inspires other filmmakers to experiment with their films, “Neeraj is a fine writer. The script is very important. I’m sure it will do really well. We do compare films with Hollywood and they are our benchmark but I think we have our own take on films. We hope this film encourages people to explore more of such concepts.”


Directed by Shivam NairNaam Shabana is a spin-off of the 2015 hit Baby and also sees Akshay Kumar in an extended cameo. Taapsee Pannu plays the central character of Shabana and the film follows her journey as she is trained to become a spy. Naam Shabana releases in cinemas on 31st March 2017.
