Badla is a Bollywood action drama, helmed by Sujoy Ghosh. The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles. Reportedly, Taapsee has taken inspiration from Hollywood actress Kerry Washington for Badla. The actress had earlier said, "It's a character I have never done before so wanted to have an interesting look put together. She hires a prestigious lawyer to defend her, and over the course of one evening, they work together to find out what actually happened. Kerry Washington's look was a perfect reference point for us and if I can achieve something even close to hers I think we will be good."
