Tara Sutaria will also be seen playing the lead role in Sajid Nadiadwala's other upcoming film, which will mark the debut of Ahan Shetty, son of Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty. Tara and Ahan will be seen together in Tadap.
A report by The Times of India quoted a spokesperson from the production house saying that the decision to pair Tara opposite Tiger was taken by Sajid when he was seeing the rushes of her scenes in Ahan Shetty's debut film.
The spokesperson said that Sajid was really moved by Tara's performance.
It is not the first time Tara and Tiger will be sharing the screen space together. The actress made her debut in Bollywood with Shroff in Karan Johar's film Student of The Year 2.
The first poster of Heropanti 2 was released in February this year. In the poster, Tiger is seen suave in a sharp black suit and red tie with an automatic gun in his hand. In another poster he is seen being orbited by a deluge of machine guns.
Heropanti 2 is expected to be released on 16 July 2021.
In Heropanti, released in 2014, Tiger was seen opposite Kriti Sanon. The film is a Hindi remake of the Telugu film Parugu.
