Ankita Lokhande who became a household name as Archana in Pavitra Rishta made her big Bollywood debut with Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The actress has now signed her second film – Baaghi 3. Baaghi 3 will feature the original Baaghi pair – Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor. It will also star Riteish Deshmukh.
Talking about Baaghi 3 Ankita Lokhande says,
“After ‘Manikarnika’, I wanted to do an out-and-out commercial film. ‘Baaghi’ is a successful franchise, and working with Ahmed (Khan) sir, Tiger, Shraddha and Riteish has been an enriching experience.”
Talking about featuring in a film which is synonymous with Tiger, Ankita says,
“It is very challenging, but I am confident that my character will strike a chord with the audience. The third installment is different from the previous two, as ‘Baaghi 3’ is more about family bonding. I play a fun-loving girl, who shares a great bond with her sister (Shraddha). I haven’t played anything like this on TV or in Bollywood and the audience will see me in a never-seen-before avatar in my next outing.”
To ace his role in the film, Tiger Shroff has learned Krava Maga, Kalaripayattu, kick-boxing, Kung-Fu and Muay Thai. Shraddha Kapoor will play an air hostess for the first time in this film. Riteish Deshmukh will essay the role of Tiger’s brother in the film.
According to reports, the first schedule of the film when on floors in Mumbai at the start of the month.
Baaghi 3 is directed by Ahmed Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The film will release on March 6, 2020.
