Alleged lovers Tiger-Disha start rehearsals for ‘Baaghi 2’

Disha Patani, who had twisted her ankle during dance rehearsals some time back, is back on her feet. She has resumed her preparations for her next film ‘Baaghi 2’ in which she will star opposite her alleged beau Tiger Shroff.

Tiger and Disha have kicked off rehearsals for Sajid Nadiadwala’s production which will go on floors in August. The shoot will begin with a song which also happens to be the film’s opening sequence.  

“The song will see Tiger and Disha perform a lot of acrobatics. Unfortunately, Disha was advised rest for two weeks after an ankle injury because of which there was a lull in prep. But she has recovered now and rehearsals are set to resume soon. The song is being choreographed by director Ahmed Khan,” a report in Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying.

The report further stated that a huge set has been created at a studio in Mumbai for the first schedule of the film. Post that, the team will leave for Delhi for a month and after that, Tiger will head to Hong Kong to receive training from action director Tony Ching for at least a month in different styles of Wushu.

‘Baaghi 2’ is the sequel of 2016 film ‘Baaghi’ directed by Sabbir Khan which saw Shraddha Kapoor opposite Tiger. Sabbir has passed on the director’s baton to Ahmed Khan for helming the sequel, which will be bankrolled by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment – NGE. While the film will bring Tiger and Disha on the big screen for the first time, the rumoured lovers have earlier sizzled together in a music video titled 'Befikra'.

Meanwhile, Tiger is gearing up for the release of ‘Munna Michael’ opposite debutante Niddhi Agerwal. The film which marks the third collaboration between Tiger and Sabbir is slated to hit screens on July 21.
