A week before the release of Baaghi 3, Tiger Shroff has taken to Twitter to announce the sequel to his debut film Heropanti. Sharing two official posters from Heropanti 2, the actor also revealed the film will be helmed by Baaghi 3 director Ahmed Khan and backed by Sajid Nadiadwala, who has bankrolled all films under the Baaghi franchise.
In the first poster, Tiger looks suave in a sharp black suit and red tie with an automatic gun in his hand. The second poster sees the actor being orbited by a deluge of machine guns.
Tiger says in the caption he is "blessed and grateful to be carrying forward another franchise with his mentor" Sajid.
