Tiger Shroff was ready to start filming for the sequel to his first film, Heropanti starting in December and there was a discussion all over how the directors planned to shoot the film in over 9 countries. The film was to feature Tara Sutaria as the lead female role alongside Tiger. however, Bollywood Hungama has now learned that filming for the action thriller has been delayed.
“The film had to be shot around the world, however due to the new variant of the Coronavirus; the manufacturers could not even complete their reconnaissance of the filming locations. It’s all a waiting scenario for the film right now and the directors will be creating a new timeline once the global Covid 19 scenario is under control, ”a source close to the development told Bollywood Hungama.
The new Covid 19 mutant is not the only reason for the delay. “The script for the film also took longer than expected, and the writing department is putting the finishing touches on it. In the meantime, producer Sajid Nadiadwala has started working on Bachchan Pandey, which is more of a test shoot for him under Akshay Kumar’s experience and he will implement a similar shooting strategy on Heropanti 2 too, ”the source added. The film is directed by Ahmed Khan, who is currently working on the action scenes for the film with the intention of portraying Tiger Shroff in a larger than life avatar never seen before.
“I hope we should start before March. We all expect the situation to be a little better because traveling to places like the UK, and the US is a bit risky at times like these. There is also a possibility of a change in some of the filming locations already decided. A new schedule will be released soon, as the idea is to complete the film with the unit all at once in multiple locations, ”said a source associated with the film.
The film will mark Tiger Shroff’s fifth collaboration with mentor Sajid Nadiadwala after Heropanti, Baaghi, Baaghi 2 and Baaghi 3.
