"After 'Chashme Baddoor', I was getting the same kind of college girl role offers. I thought I will get typecast in Bollywood and will not get anything else. So I thought before I get stamped for doing similar roles, I should do 'Baby'. I'm glad I did this film," Taapsee said.

Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film features Akshay Kumar, Rana Daggubati and Anupam Kher, and it tackles the theme of terrorism.

Taapsee, who has done her fair share of movies in Tamil and Telugu, says she had never planned to be an actor."I was sure that I can never act. I can never pretend in front of the camera. I thought this was a wrong profession for me. I was interested in studies. But if something is written in your destiny, it will happen," she said.
