Filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala's Baaghi 2 has already hit bull's eye by casting rumoured real-life couple Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani. Though there were rumours doing the rounds that the makers were planning to repeat the original cast — Tiger and Shraddha Kapoor — in the sequel, Nadiadwala quashed the specualtion and said he wanted a fresh face as the female lead.
Nadiadwala made it clear that he zeroed in on Disha after the look test and not because of the real-life equation.
"Disha is just perfect for the role. I am happy with my cast and am excited to kickstart the project," Nadiadwala told The Times of India.
An elated Disha took to Twitter to reveal the news and share her excitement.
Tiger, too, congratulated Disha on the micro-blogging site and fondly called her 'd'.
According to the report, Tiger will fly off to Hong Kong in July to learn stunt tips from martial arts director Tony Ching. He will learn Bak Mei, Choy Li Fut and Wing Chun, various forms of Wushu, a Chinese martial arts technique. Ahmed Khan, who is directing the second film, wants it to look different than the original.
As far the on-screen chemistry is concerned with his alleged lady love, we have already had a glimpse of it in the music video Befikra last year.
