Pushing the envelope when it comes to death-defying stunts seems to be the norm for Tiger Shroff who has performed another insanely bizarre stunt for the opening scene of BAAGHI 2. The scene required Tiger Shroff jump off a 120 feet cliff, navigate through tree branches and land on the ground.
Though there was a body double on set for the stunt sequence, director Ahmed Khan was not satisfied with the end result, he said, "When the body double performed the stunt, I was dissatisfied with it. On seeing that, Tiger offered to do the stunt himself. When we were filming, there were 10 things going on in my mind - how he should protect his face, how the branches could injure his eyes. Tiger, on the other hand, was so calm. After the scene, he had badly bruised his back, thighs and elbows."
However, Ahmed was against the idea of Tiger performing the stunt himself as it involved risk of him suffering gashes on his face, he further said, “Tiger had to land on the ground while cutting through a tree, which is dangerous as the branches could cut into his face. I was worried that one gash on his face can destroy his career. We chose a tree that had branches coming down alternately so that it causes minimum damage."
Co-Produced by Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner name Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, BAAGHI 2 is directed by Ahmed Khan and is slated to release on 30th March 2018.
