Tiger Shroff to do underwater stunts in Baaghi 2 and do two types of martial arts in his action sequences too!
Tiger Shroff will get to do some extra-ordinary stunts in Ahmed Khan’s Baaghi 2 directed by Sajid Nadiadwala.
Says an insider, “Because Baaghi had worked big time at the BO, hence Sajid and Ahmed want to go all out for Baaghi 2 and make it bigger and better. In the Baaghi 2 poster they have treated Tiger not like a four-film hero but as big a star as Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan. Nobody has seen what Ahmed and Tiger have worked out for the film. There is so much left to be shown in Tiger that audiences will be shocked. Martial arts are just a fraction of his talent. The action that will be in Baaghi 2, will blow everyone’s minds. Tiger will undergo training for deep sea diving action sequences. Few know that he’s a deep sea swimmer and so good that you can tie his hands and legs and drop him in the middle of the sea but he will come out. The training will be for specific action sequences.”
Hold your breath! There’s more. “Tiger is outstanding with basketball to the extent he can go to state level. He uses the nunchaku or chainsticks which is a traditional Okinawan martial arts weapon consisting of two sticks connected at one end by a short chain or rope, in a way Bruce Lee used to use and bamboo staff used in Filipino martial arts, which nobody has seen before. All these aspects of Tiger will be highlighted in the film making it spectacular!”
Also Ahmed Khan is a choreographer so it will be interesting to see him make Tiger do something different. The source discloses, “In Baahubali the action looks so beautiful because it is done with the action director and a choreographer. That’s why that coordination, timing, stunts and the postures are beautiful. Internationally when they have this kind of action, they have choreographers coming with counts, like dance steps. The action Chinese films are like that and that’s why the action is so coordinated. Ahmed is having an action coordinator from abroad and he himself will be doing the choreography so imagine what will be the timing and choreography with both of them and Tiger?”
Dance wise too Tiger will be presented in a different way. “Tiger has not been shown as a dance hero to songs which Ahmed has choreographed – massy numbers like Kya ada kya jalwe tere Paro and Main hoon Aflatoon so imagine Tiger dancing to numbers like that? Ahmed plans to do a college song with Tiger like Aamir had done in Dil (Khambe jaise khadi hai) in Baaghi 2. People have seen Tiger dance to such songs so when they see him doing this they will say yeh kya kar dekhaya Tiger ne! That is the homework which Sajid and Ahmed have done for Tiger in Baaghi 2.”
