One of the most anticipated movies of 2018, Sajid Nadiadwala’s Baaghi 2 which features real life love birds Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani in the lead, has one more name added to the stellar cast.
Randeep Hooda has now joined Sajid Nadiadwala’s next production Baaghi 2 directed by choreographer-turned-filmmaker Ahmed Khan. Randeep was earlier seen in Sajid Nadiadwala’s 2014 debut directorial, Kick. He played a cop, Himanshu Tyagi, who is in pursuit of Devi Lal Singh aka Devil, a Robin Hood-like character played by Salman Khan.
Randeep Hooda confirms the news. He says, “Sajid Bhai has always been a guiding light and a friend who genuinely cares for me and my art. Our previous two collaborations (Highway and Kick) have been landmarks in my career both commercially and critically. He always comes up with real gems and this one is special.”
A source close to the development reveals that this role will surprise the audience since Randeep is known for his powerful performances in critically acclaimed films like Highway. “He is expected to get his earlobes pierced and will sport dreadlocks with a funky wardrobe. His character is called LSD,” adds the source.
Baaghi 2 kicked off their first schedule in Pune on September 18 and after wrapping up the shoot in the city, the film’s team moved on to Mumbai and continued shooting. Actors like Manoj Bajpayee and Prateik Babbar play a significant role in this sequel to 2015’s hit film Baaghi that starred Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor. Baaghi 2 is slated for release on 27th April 2018.
