Never have they ever: 'Baaghi' stars Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor talk stunts, sexting and more
Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor chat with us about Baaghi and more on The Firstpost Show
This week we have two very special guests on The Firstpost Show — stars of the film Baaghi and longtime friends — Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor.
Right off the bat, the camaraderie between the co-stars was pretty visible, the comfort that comes from having seen each other when they were in school uniforms to transitioning into their glamorous movie star selves. It was also evident in the way they couldn’t stop praising each other in the course of our chat.
Tiger told us that the action in Baaghi was challenging for both of them to pull off, adding, “Shraddha’s had no experience with action films before or much (martial arts) training. She didn’t even have too much time to prepare for the role, but in Baaghi, she makes the action on screen look like she’s been doing it for years”.
Shraddha also said that while Tiger would be playing to his strengths in this one, Baaghi would give audiences a chance to see the young star like they’ve never seen him before.
Serious questions sorted, it was time for some fun, and we challenged the duo to play a very, very naughty round of “Never have I Ever”. There were lots of diplomatic answers in there from both young actors, but we did manage to extract a few confessions from Tiger and Shraddha!
Tiger admitted that he’d never been on a Tinder date, and was too shy to sext — but had visited a strip club! “Well we were shooting in Bangkok and I was dragged along. (The trouble is) Half of India is there, so you’ll have someone asking, ‘Kahaan jaa rahe ho Tiger?’” the actor quipped.
As for Shraddha, she admitted that she had visited a strip club once in New York during her student years in the US of A, but never since.
No scandals to sniff out here, but it still was fun having Tiger and Shraddha on board. We’ll see them on the big screen in Baaghi on 29 April.
Minnal Murali was set to release theatrically in 2020 but the film was postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Netflix is yet to announce a release date for the movie.
“We want to make sure that even when the pandemic is behind us that we’re as accessible as possible. If there’s a way to deliver at least parts of the festival online, then we want to do that,” says Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Afghan director Sahraa Karimi says the Afghan film industry had entirely stopped "in the space of a few hours" after the sudden takeover by the Taliban last month in the wake of the US military's withdrawal.
