While Baaghi 4 is touted to be the biggest film of the popular franchise, Heropanti 2 is expected to go on floors this December. Interestingly, Tiger had made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti in 2014. Directed by Sabbir Khan, the film also starred Kriti Sanon and Prakash Raj. Reportedly, the two movies will be shot across 25 countries.
While the first part of the Baaghi series released in 2016 and featured Shraddha Kapoor in the lead alongside Tiger, the second installment starred Disha Patani with Tiger. Baaghi 3 released this year and featured Tiger with Shraddha and Riteish Deshmukh. Baaghi was directed by Sabbir Khan, whereas Baaghi 2 and Baaghi 3 were directed by Ahmed Khan.
The Baaghi series has been super successful at the box office. While the debut installment earned Rs. 76 crore, Baaghi 2 and Baaghi 3 collected Rs. 164 crore and Rs. 93 crore, respectively. The third part of the series, released in March, failed to do good business as soon after its release, theaters across the country were shuttered due to COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the action series has received mostly poor reviews. In our review of Baaghi 3, we wrote, "It would be both unfair and unwise to expect a lot from a movie like Baaghi 3...It is just your regular dose of escapist filmmaking and popcorn entertainment."
A source told Pinkvilla, "Tiger Shroff is a symbol of fierce strength and immense hard work. His originality and his commitment to carrying death-defying action sequences has made him the new age action star." "Now, with Heropanti 2 and Baaghi 4, Sajid and Tiger's power duo will team up for a total of six times," the source added.
