After producing back to back hits and directing one of the biggest hits last year, Sajid Nadiadwala is all set for his next film BAAGHI to go on floors. As soon as the film was announced there were a lot of speculations as to who would play the female lead in the film. Newcomer Disha Patani was rumoured to have signed the film but now Shraddha Kapoor has been finalized for the role of the female lead.
Now that we have seen how Sajid Nadiadwala has been investing in a lot of young talent, the youngsters are vying to work with him. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who is also Tiger’s mentor, mentioned that the film is about rebels and hence, they were considering a new pair for the film. Excited about the project, Sajid was also all praises for Shraddha’s acting skills. The audience will get to see a fresh pair of Tiger and Shraddha and also will once again bring together the Sajid-Sabbir-Tiger trio who created the hit ‘Heropanti’.
Interestingly, the film which is an intense love story set in an urban backdrop underwent many changes in its title. While Heer and Ranjha was the working title, the makers decided to finalise ‘Baaghi’, which co-incidentally is the title of Salman Khan and Nagma starrer that released in 1990. However, the makers maintained that the two films have no resemblance and Sabbir too confirmed that Tiger’s ‘Baaghi’ has an original script.
