Shraddha Kapoor, who featured in the first part of the film Baaghi in 2016, has been officially signed up for the third instalment of the same hit franchise opposite Tiger Shroff. Tiger has headlined the last two instalments and would continue to do so in the third Baaghi film as well.
Shroff's rumoured girlfriend, Disha Patani was casted as the female lead in Baaghi 2. Disha and Sara Ali Khan were the two names making who were making rounds to be roped in as the female lead but unexpectedly now Shraddha has been finalised for the lead role. Baaghi 3's producer, Sajid Nadiadwala recently said in a statement, “The entire team of Baaghi is very happy to have Shraddha Kapoor back. Tiger and Shraddha’s pair was extremely loved in Baaghi and I am sure that fans of the franchise will be as excited as we are to have them together.”
Baaghi 2 director Ahmad Khan will also be directing Baaghi 3. Baaghi 2 was indeed one of the biggest hits we saw in 2018 and it also marked Tiger and Disha's careers best shot at the box office as it collected Rs 250 Crore (approximately) worldwide.
Few weeks ago during an interview, Tiger said that “there is pressure because I didn’t expect Baaghi 2 would do the numbers which it did so there is lot of expectations among audience for Baaghi as a franchise and not only that, I am also doing Student of The Year 2 which is a very big franchise.” He announced the third movie in the same franchise last year and tweeted, “And round 3 is on! #SajidNadiadwala’s #Baaghi3 will be out on 6th March 2020. This one’s for you Baaghians. @khan_ahmedasas @foxstarhindi @NGEMovies @WardaNadiadwala”
Baaghi 3 is slated for a March 6, 2020 release. Stay tuned for more Bollywood Updates!
