Riteish Joins the ‘Baaghi’ Franchise as Tiger’s Brother

The Baaghi franchise is set to return with its third part, as the pre-production is currently underway. While Baaghi 3 will feature Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles, Riteish Deshmukh has been roped in to play Tiger’s brother in the film.

Shraddha confirmed the news in a tweet that read, “ Woohoooo! So excited to be a rebel with @Riteishd you again after #EkVillain! Let’s do this! #Baaghi3”

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Baaghi 3 is likely to go on floors some time in August and it will be Riteish’s sixth film with producer Sajid Nadiadwala. “Riteish has always been a part of my Housefull franchise and now joins the Baaghi clan as well. Baaghi 3 will be my sixth film with him after Heyy Babyy and four installments of Housefull. We share a great relationship and it was a pleasure writing Lai Bhaari for him,” Sajid told the publication.

Riteish recently wrapped up Milap Zaveri’s Marjaavaan which also stars Sidharth Malhotra. He will also be seen in a special number in Housefull 4 which stars Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kirti Kharbhanda and Pooja Hegde.

Tiger Shroff last featured in Punit Malhotra’s Student of the Year 2 with Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday. Shraddha Kapoor will also be seen opposite Baahubali actor Prabhas in action thriller Saaho.
