'Baaghi 3' lead actress will be announced within a month: Sajid Nadiadwala
Mumbai: Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has said that his team will finalise and announce the lead actress for Baaghi 3 within a month.
Nadiadwala made the remarks while interacting with the media at a special screening of Baaghi 2 on Thursday evening.
There were reports that Disha Patani will again be paired with Tiger Shroff in Baaghi 3.
So when asked about the female lead, Nadiadwala said, "Writing of 'Baaghi 3' is still in process and within a month, we will come to know and then we will announce it".
Nadiadwala announced 'Baaghi 3' when the trailer for Baaghi 2 was launched.
"Actually, I announced it before trailer of 'Baaghi 2' to my team. I wanted to give confidence before releasing 'Baaghi 2' to the director and the whole acting team and I am sure that the audience will like 'Baaghi 2' and help us to make part three"
Director Ahmed Khan who was also present at the screening, said, "Now, the remaining hours will feel like a very long period for me. It's a mixed feeling as I am feeling happy, scared and hopeful for the film. It's a film which audience would love to see. It has lot of action with a good story backing it, so I don't think anyone will be disappointed."
Pakistani singer Atif Aslam has sung O Saathi in Baaghi 2 so Ahmed Khan was queried about banning Pakistani artists in India, he said, "I think every artist is an artist irrespective of any country. If our country's audience wants to listen to their songs then we should leave it to them to decide that and if people will say it shouldn't happen then also, we should listen to them. It depends on the public and not on certain people."
