Taapsee Pannu is currently prepping up for the climax of Neeraj Pandey's Naam Shabana with a Hollywood stuntman, stunt director and martial arts expert, Cyril Raffaelli who designed the action for films like The Transporter, Tekken and The Incredible Hulk to name a few. Cyril has flown down to Hyderabad where the actress is shooting her Telugu horror-comedy, Muni 3: Kanchana 2, to train her for the final leg of the thriller in mid-February.

Taapsee says, “We have fairly limited time before we shoot the climax. The climax is going to be pretty intense and there's a lot of action that I'm going to be doing. Cyril has been great mentor and Akshay sir too has been a great guiding force for Naam Shabana, especially for my stunt training. I did an extensive two-month-long training for the earlier schedule and now when I'm going to be shooting in Hyderabad, we'll further work on the stunts and training before shooting around mid-February. I'm shooting for a film there and will simultaneously juggle my time to wrap up my daily training.“
