Baaghi 3 is the third installment of the popular action thriller franchise, Baaghi. The first two films starred Tiger Shroff in the lead roles. The third part also stars Tiger along with Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor. Writer-director Farhad Samji shared more details of the film in an interview with Mumbai Mirror. He revealed that the action thriller would also have a ‘dose of humour’. Discussing Riteish’s casting in the film, he said, “Riteish has always been known for his comedy yet he impressed as the psychopathic antagonist in Ek Villian. Unlike the previous two installments, Baaghi 3 has a generous dose of humour and the character Riteish portrays complements his comic timing.”
Talking about the storyline, he said the film would have ‘serious action after a certain incident’ and Riteish would be an important catalyst of the plot.
“He and Tiger are like Ram and Lakhan of our film,” Farhad added. The filmmaker was all full of praise for Tiger saying he ‘possesses the lethal combination of aggression on screen and humility off it’ and that he was a ‘huge hit with youngsters’ and gives his 100 percent to all his movies.
