Taapsee Pannu to retire if she is half as successful as Akshay

Wednesday 12th June 2019 06:42 EDT

Actor Taapsee Pannu has several films in her kitty, and one with her 'Baby' co-star Akshay Kumar. “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.” While the actress has already delivered her first hit of the year with 'Badla' alongside Amitabh Bachchan, she has 'Mission Mangal' pending with Kumar, and will also be seen in a psychological thriller titled 'Game Over' and 'Saand ki Aankh' with Bhumi Pednekar.

Akshay, on the other hand, has two films lined up for release in 2019, after his 'Kesari' emerged as a hit earlier this year. He will be seen in multi-starrer comedy 'Housefull 4' and 'Good News' with Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. He is currently working on a Rohit Shetty film titled 'Sooryavanshi' which will release next year. He also has 'Laxmmi Bomb', a Hindi remake of 2011 Tamil film 'Muni 2: Kanchana' scheduled for release in 2020.

'Mission Mangal' includes Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, and Nithya Menon, alongside Taapsee and Akki. The film revolves around the scientists who were pivotal in India's first Mars Orbiter Mission. While the film was earlier scheduled to release on Independence Day, August 15, it may now be preponed to August 9.
