Baaghi director Sabbir Khan has maintained that his leads, Shraddha Kapoor and Tiger Shroff, displayed a sizzling chemistry from the first day of the shoot. A ripped Tiger, dressed in a black vest, is seen passionately embracing his onscreen ladylove who has his shirt draped around her, as they share a kiss in the rain. “We shot it sometime last year. Tiger and Shraddha share a great rapport having known each other since their school days and were really comfortable with each other. I noticed the comfort they share during our reading sessions and decided to tap it. They look amazing together,” says the director, adding that the unit filmed two romantic sequences in Kerela and Thailand.
Was there any kind of awkwardness during the shoot? “Not at all! They are both thorough professionals. Thanks to the reading sessions, they knew the script well and we had a blast on the sets,” recalls Sabbir. “They even helped each other during difficult scenes, be it action, dance or emotional ones.”
Tiger locked lips with Kriti Sanon in his debut film, Heropanti, as well. Is he on his way to becoming Bollywood’s next serial kisser? “If I know him well, he’ll do anything if the script demands it,” Sabbir laughs approvingly.
