MUMBAI— Sajid Nadiadwala’s “Baaghi 2” has gone on floors in Pune at a college campus. The sequel to the 2016 hit, “Baaghi,” will feature Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani in the lead roles. The action film is set to raise new standards in terms of action, according to producer Sajid Nadiadwala. While the first film released Apr. 29, 2016, the new film will come on Apr. 27, 2018.
The filmmaker has managed to bring together one of the most anticipated pairings in Hindi cinema, as Shroff’s fans are excited about watching the chemistry between girlfriend Disha Patani and him on screen. This film marks the third collaboration of Nadiadwala with Shroff, who, before “Baaghi,” had introduced Shroff in the 2014 film, “Heropanti.”
Shroff shared in a media release, “I’m excited to work with Sajid-sir again. I missed working with him. He’s family to me, not because I made my debut with his production, but because he has been my mentor throughout my journey. This is like returning to home turf. Sajid-sir has great sensibilities as a filmmaker. I’ve always learnt while working with him and I was missing that. Our bond is only becoming stronger with time. Maybe when you have worked together for a while, you sense each other’s requirements and the bond that develops helps you understand each other better.”
The film is being directed by Ahmed Khan.
