After the first poster of their film garnered quite a lot of attention, Baaghi’s lead pair — Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor — are back in the news again.
While Shraddha has wowed her producer, Sajid Nadiadwala, with her daredevilry, according to this Indian Express report, Tiger for his part, has been training in kalaripayuttu — the traditional martial arts form from Kerala — to get his stunt sequences an edge.
“When Sajid saw the rushes, he was very happy with the way Shraddha performed action in the film. Glimpses of the same will be seen in the trailer, which will be released on March 14,” said a source connected to the film.
Meanwhile, Tiger said about his kalaripayuttu experience: "I underwent extensive training in kalaripayattu before we started shooting as the martial art form is an important part of the film. It was a thoroughly enriching experience.”
The film’s second poster was also released recently, and generated quite the buzz among fans, for taking the lead pair's chemistry a notch higher. It shows Tiger enfolding Shraddha in an embrace, while she snuggles within his leather jacket. Both actors sport appropriately intense expressions, but Tiger also has a wound on his cheekbone, living up to the film’s tag line of being “a rebel in love” perhaps.
The film’s trailer is expected to be out today. Directed by Sabbir Khan, Baaghi will release on 29 April.
