Choreographer-turned-filmmaker Ahmed Khan is quite psyched up about his upcoming directorial venture Baaghi 3. Khan, who also helmed Baaghi 2 (2018), the second instalment of the Baaghi (2016) franchise, has elaborate plans to shoot the action entertainer, featuring Tiger Shroff in the lead role.

Talking to a popular entertainment magazine, the director reveals that he is planning to shoot the next instalment of the blockbuster franchise in Syria and Iraq because it requires that kind of setting.

“Along with the big action pieces, Baaghi series also has an emotional story at its centre. I am going to finish the dramatic scenes first and then get into the action as that may take time. We will start sometime mid-next year. Sajid and I have spoken about it. We want to shoot the film in Syria and Iraq because it requires that kind of terrain. But since shooting at these places can be difficult, we will have to check the possibility of doing so first,” says the filmmaker.

To slide into the skin of his character, Tiger Shroff will learn how to fly a chopper and use heavy artillery. He will be visiting several places to learn all combats. While Shroff is confirmed for Baaghi 3 since the very beginning, the makers are currently looking for an actress to play the female part in the flick.

To be produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Fox Star Studios, Baaghi 3 is set to roll into theatres on 6th March, 2019.
