Bollywood’s Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor turn rebels in ‘Baaghi 3’
The Bollywood actors, who were in Dubai last week, are back to the hit action franchise. Bollywood action hero Tiger Shroff is back to being a rebel with a murky and worthy cause in ‘Baaghi 3’, out in the UAE cinemas on March 5th. Those who have followed his trajectory as its lead hero of this polarising action drama franchise will tell you that it’s Shroff’s show all the way. In the ‘Baaghi’ (meaning rebel) universe, the men are muscled and the tone is testosterone-heavy.
The hero is back to playing Ronnie, an indestructible force of nature who courts danger and saves damsels in distress. In the original that released in 2016, he took on a kidnapping ring leader, but the stakes have been upped in the latest instalment.
Directed by Ahmed Khan, Shroff takes on Daesh militants in Syria. Accompanying him on his mission is actress Shraddha Kapoor in his third chapter, who returns to the franchise after being away for the sequel. But she’s back in the fold too.
