After much speculation, it has been confirmed that Disha Patani will be the lead opposite Tiger Shroff in Baaghi 2. And the fact that rumour mills are buzzing with Tiger and Disha's alleged affair only makes us look forward to this pairing. Disha and Tiger have worked together in the past when they collaborated for a music video, Befikra. So will the familiarity and the fact that they're good friends help the co-stars gel better? Disha feels it will. “We are very good friends so I think for us it will be easier to work together. There is a certain kind of understanding that we have,” said Disha.
However, she also knows that she has her work cut out as Tiger, according to her, is a perfectionist. “I know for a fact that I have to really work hard to be able to match up to him or to be able to just stand next to him. He is a focused man and is someone who inspires me. Whatever he does, could be dance or action, he gives his 1000 per cent. He goes into a different zone and is very passionate,” Disha added.
The Sajid Nadiadwala film, much like the first part, Baaghi, starring Tiger and Shraddha Kapoor, will be an out and out action film. Talking about the film, Disha said, “Baaghi was kind of a revolution in terms of action like nobody has made an action film like this. We have had many action films, but this film was very different in terms of doing physical action and not using body double or much of harness.”
But the sequel promises to be bigger, better and quite different. At least that's what Disha tells us. “I can’t reveal much, but it’s a completely different set-up and story. And it’s a very special story. When I heard, I was thrilled,” Disha added before signing off. This only piques our interest further and now we can't wait for the film.
