Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar, who is gearing up for the release of "Baby" on 23 January, said the movie is different from his 2014 movie "Holiday" and Salman Khan's 2013 film "Ek Tha Tiger".

"Baby" is an espionage action thriller film, which has been written and directed by Neeraj Pandey. It deals with terrorism, one of the biggest threats faced by India.

When quizzed about how different is "Baby" from those films, Akshay Kumar, who is now busy promoting the film, said that treatment of the subject is different. "It is different in terms of its characters. All these movies talk about terrorism, but "Baby"  is about a different type of terrorism," he told in an exclusive interview to Bollywood Hungama.

The movie revolves around the story of Ajay Singh Rajput, who is part of an elite team chosen from amongst the best in the Forces to form a covert Counter Intelligence Unit. How he discovers a major threat to the nation and prevents the terror tsunami with the help of his team will form the crux of the story.

The promos of "Baby" has no space for romance, which has been a must feature of Akshay Kumar's movies. The actor admits not having romantic scenes as it is not required in the film. 

"Basically, we are a bunch of people appointed by high command and we only report to them. Baby is the code word of this group because we are just born and got into this special task. They solve the problems without the knowledge of the nation. This group is legally not there in the nation, but it is there in the book of high command," added Akshay Kumar.

Apart from Akshay Kumar, "Baby" also features Rana Daggubati, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa Taapsee Pannu, Mikaal Zulfiqar and Madhurima Tuli in important roles. The movie is set to be released as a treat for viewers on the eve of Republic Day.
