Shraddha Kapoor, who had featured in the first ' Baaghi' film, Riteish Deshmukh is the latest entrant in the action franchise’s upcoming third installment. The actor is set to play leading man Tiger Shroff’s brother in the film.
Now, we have learnt that Tiger, who will be seen defending a city or a desert in a larger-than-life climax for the Ahmed Khan directorial, is also gearing up to choreograph stunt sequences.
The 29-year-old actor has started prepping for his part before the film goes on the floors in Mumbai by July-end. “Tiger has always been an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) expert. Now, he is learning new forms in it while also practicing Kalaripayattu, Kung Fu, Krav Maga, Kick Boxing and Muay Thai. He wants' Baaghi 3' to be filled with big and unique action sequences and is already developing new stunts with Ahmed,” informs a source close to the development.
For reference, Tiger is relying on films of English actor and martial artist Scott Adkins, Bruce Lee and his idol, Jackie Chan.
Reportedly, he will also be training in heavy artillery for the Sajid Nadiadwala production. “After the Mumbai schedule, Tiger will shoot in Morocco, Turkey, Siberia and Egypt. The team had gone to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, last month for a recce,” adds the source. Tiger, who is presently working on his first film with Hrithik Roshan, confirmed the news saying, “Fortunately, my director is open to suggestions, so we do a lot of back and forth on that. For instance, if my kicks or my hand-work is good, my inputs are considered by the stunt team and the director. Then, my action directors show me their ideas and if they are well-executed after some practice, it’s the best of both worlds.”
