June 08 : Last year in February, Tiger Shroff announced the sequel to his debut film Heropanti. Directed by Ahmed Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Heropanti 2 has since been in the news. Tiger Shroff had made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti in 2014 along with Kriti Sanon.
After Tara Sutaria was roped in to play the female lead opposite Tiger, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has recently been brought on board to play the antagonist whom Tiger will be seen taking on. While the first shooting schedule of the film was wrapped up in Mumbai just before the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic struck the country, the second schedule of the film, which was postponed, will now resume.
Reportedly, Tiger, Tara and Nawazuddin will head to Russia in July for the second schedule. The team will reportedly shoot some major action sequences and a song in Moscow and St Petersburg.
The team is currently talking to several stunt designers including Martin Ivano of Skyfall (2012) fame, as the makers are planning to include some larger than life action sequences, which will be shot in Russia.
Sajid Nadiadwala has also ensured that before the second schedule was commenced in Russia, all actors and the crew members of Heropanti 2 are vaccinated. The filmmakers have also decided to vaccinate the crew members of his other upcoming productions including Bachchan Pandey, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and Tadap.
Meanwhile, the Rangeela trio, Ahmed Khan, AR Rahman, and songwriter Mehboob will reunite in Heropanti 2. Mehboob and Rahma has already completed two songs for the movie.
On the professional front, Tiger Shroff has several films in the pipeline. The actor will be seen in Baaghi 4, Ganapath and Rambo. In Ganapath, Tiger will share screen space with Kriti Sanon and Nora Fatehi. The movie will be produced by Vashu Bhagnani.
