Shraddha Kapoor to romance Tiger Shroff in Nadiadwala's ‘Baaghi’


Actress Shraddha Kapoor will be playing the female lead opposite Tiger Shroff in ‘Baaghi’. There was a lot of speculation about who will be cast opposite the ‘Heropanti’ actor in the movie produced by ‘Kick’ producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Sabbir Khan.  

Rumors were rife that newcomer Divya Patani had been chosen for the part, but the role came Shraddha’s way. The girl was to debut with Karan Johar’s production ‘No Sex Please’, which never took off. She was then chosen for Ekta Kapoor’s project Vanity Fair, but that, too, was shelved.

Sajid launched young talents Tiger and Kirti sanon in his film ‘Heropanti’ which went on to become a huge success. Director Sabbir too had made his debuted with Sajid’s production ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan in 2009. No wonder then that newcomers are eager to work with the producer-director with back-to-back hits.

Sajid has brought together the ‘Heropanti’ actor-director team — Tiger Shroff and Sabbir Khan once again in ‘Baaghi’. This would be Sabbir’s third project with the producer.

The film ‘Baaghi’ casts a fresh pair in the lead. It will be very interesting to see the star kids –Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger and Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha together in the film.

With box-office successes like ‘Aashiqui  2’, ‘Ek Villain’ and Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’ behind her, there are great expectations from Shraddha’s upcoming dance-based film ABCD 2 as well.

Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and UTV’s production ‘Baaghi’ is an intense love story set in a metropolis and is expected to be high on action. The film is all set to go on floors and is due to release in April 15, 2016.

Sabbir has clarified that it is an original script and not a remake of the 1990 film starring Salman Khan and Nagma as speculated earlier. He had also said that he would be looking for a new face for ‘Baaghi’, which has been bagged by Shraddha.
