Taapsee Pannu and Akshay Kumar will now be seen in Mission Mangal.

Actor Taapsee Pannu has several films in hand, one of them with her Baby co-star Akshay Kumar. Like Taapsee, Akshay, too, features in multiple films each year and will be seen with Taapsee in Mission Mangal.

Talking about Akshay, Taapsee told Deccan Chronicle in an interview, “I have these kind of conversations with Akshay, that even I have four releases this year. But if I reach even half the place where he has, I think I will retire after that. He has done so many things that it’s commendable.”

Taapsee has already delivered her first hit of the year, Badla with Amitabh Bachchan. Apart from Mission Mangal, Taapsee will also be seen in psychological thriller (Tamil-Telugu bilingual) Game Over and Saand Ki Aankh with Bhumi Pednekar.
