Earlier this month, Taapsee Pannu started training in Israeli martial art Krav Maga, under Bollywood action hero Akshay Kumar. Now, we hear that the young actress has adopted one more quality of the Khiladi. The action sequences in her upcoming film Baby have been done by the actress herself without the help of the body-double, just as Akshay does.

While many actors are known to commit and later develop cold feet, insiders reveal that Taapsee shot like a thorough professional.

Taapsee said, “I am an adventurous person by nature. Thus, performing stunts was definitely something which gave me an adrenaline rush. I will admit that I was a bit nervous in the beginning. However, the scenes were an imperative part of the film.”

Meanwhile, given her busy schedule promoting the film Baby, Taapsee will also be missing meeting her boyfriend, Danish badminton player Mathias Boe, who will be coming to India for a badminton tournament. While Boe will be visiting Lucknow for the tournament starting on January 17, Tapsee will be busy travelling to different cities to promote Baby, which is set to release on January 23.

“Yes, he will be in India. But I will be promoting Baby on those same dates,” Taapsee said.

The two met during the inaugural Indian Badminton League last year where Boe was part of the Lucknow-based team Awadhe Warriors, and Taapsee was the brand ambassador of champions Hyderabad Hotshots.
