Heropanti 2, on the other hand, is an action-packed film starring Tara Sutaria opposite Tiger Shroff. It is the fifth collaboration of Tiger with Sajid Nadiadwala post Heropanti, Baaghi, Baaghi 2 and Baaghi 3. The film is helmed by Ahmed Khan.

A source told Bollywood Hungama, “The script of the film also took longer than expected, and the writing department is, giving it finishing touches. In the meanwhile, producer Sajid Nadiadwala has commenced work on Bachchan Pandey, which is more of a test shoot for him under the experience of Akshay Kumar and he will implement a similar shooting strategy on Heropanti 2 as well,” the source further shared. The movie is directed by Ahmed Khan, who is at present working on the action scenes of the film with the plan to present Tiger Shroff in a never seen before larger-than-life avatar.”

“Hopefully, we should get rolling before March. We all are waiting for the situation to be a little better as travelling to places like the UK, and the US is a little risky in times like these. There is also a possibility of change in some of the already decided shooting spots. A new schedule will be churned out soon, as the idea is to complete the film with the unit in one go at multiple locations”, added the source.
