Akshay Kumar featured in Neeraj Pandey's Baby which was a critical success and the actor received a lot of acclaim for his performance.
However, the actor wouldn't be starring in the second instalment of Baby franchise. Taapsee Pannu, who had an acclaimed cameo in the prequel, will be seen reprising her role titled Naam Shabana.
The film, which reportedly also stars Manoj Bajpayee and Prithviraj Sukumaran, however, will feature Akshay Kumar in a cameo. The actor confirmed the same on Twitter.
In order!! The MasterMind, The Hero and the Cameo... Team

Taapsee, who's fresh from the phenomenal success of her recent release 'Pink', is quite excited about the film, and said that Akshay's cameo was pretty much half the battle won for her.
