It is a thriller with lots of action. The story has been inspired from real life incidents. I play a under-cover intelligence cop," Akshay told reporters during the trailer launch here last night.
Besides Akshay, 'Baby' also stars Anupam Kher, Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa and Taapsee Pannu among others.
