It’s not Sara Ali Khan or Disha Patani, as rumoured earlier, but Shraddha Kapoor who is to star opposite Tiger Shroff in Baaghi 3. Shraddha was Tiger’s Significant Other in the first franchise in 2016. In the second part, the leading lady was Disha Patani. Baaghi 3 will go on the floors later this year and Shraddha is back in the groove with Tiger.
Tiger Shroff has tasted success with Baaghi which was a big hit and showcased his dancing abilities well. The second part was a bigger hit with the real-life rumours surrounding Disha and Tiger adding the extra spice!

Sara Ali Khan was rumoured to have been approached for Baaghi 3 and a source very close to the film says, “Sara was never approached for Baaghi 3. Secondly, it’s in very bad taste to talk about roles that actors have refused. In the West, actors never talk about the roles they refuse. In India, it’s considered a matter of pride and actors often brag about it.”
Tiger and Shraddha are childhood friends and their fathers, Jackie Shroff and Shakti Kapoor, were colleagues who worked together on many movies. As children, Tiger and Shraddha even attended birthday parties together. They join as co-stars again as the film is set to go on floors this year. Will Baaghi 3 be as big a hit as the other two? Wait and watch.
