The Tiger Shroff-Disha Patani jodi reminds Ahmed Khan of Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone

Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani

Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani have been paired together for 'Baaghi 2' for the very first time. If the previews of the film are anything to go by, their pairing looks good. Watching them together and seeing their rapport reminds the film’s director Ahmed Khan, of another popular B-town pair. He shares "I am impressed by their confidence. Tiger and Disha bring outstanding freshness on screen. I haven’t seen it for a long time. It takes me back to the days of Ranbir and Deepika’s amazing chemistry in their early days in Bollywood."

The story of the film demanded that Tiger’s and Disha’s characters also have a bit of intensity. Ahmed adds, "Tiger and Disha are friends but during the workshops I ensured that I broke the comfortability they shared with each other because that was important for the film. Initially they would joke around with each other, but then I ensured that they spoke to each other differently. This is not a regular love-story and I needed this kind of energy from my leads. 'Baaghi 2' at the end of the day is the journey of a woman." He adds that the film is a thriller, romance as well as an action film. He was particularly surprised with Disha’s motivation. He reveals, "Tiger was already on board, but we still hadn’t zeroed in on the girl. Disha was supposed to do the first film in the franchise. I decided to do some workshops with her. I realised that she had immense drive. Also, she is hugely popular on social media. So we decided to cast her in 'Baaghi 2."'
