Remaking South Indian films is nothing new in Bollywood. This Friday we will be watching Sanjay Dutt starrer Prassthanam which is a remake of 2010 release Telugu film with the same name. And now, according to a report in an entertainment portal, Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Baaghi 3 is a remake of the Tamil film Vettai.
The original film starred Arya, R. Madhavan, Sameera Reddy, and Amala Paul. The movie was about to brothers and how they take revenge for their father’s death. Apart from Tiger and Shraddha, Baaghi 3 also stars Riteish Deshmukh and we don’t be surprised if Tiger and Riteish play siblings in the film.
Well, Baaghi 2 was also a remake of a South Indian film. The Ahmed Khan directorial was a remake of Telugu film Kshanam. While the original film was a thriller, Baaghi 2 was made as an action flick.
It was a few days ago when the makers of Baaghi 3 kickstarted the shooting of the film in Mumbai. The movie is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Ahmed Khan. The official Twitter handle of the Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment had tweeted, “Kick. Fly. Punch. This time it’s going to be three times the Action ? #SajidNadiadwala’s #Baaghi3 shoot begins today! ?????? @khan_ahmedasas @iTIGERSHROFF @ShraddhaKapoor @Riteishd @farhad_samji @WardaNadiadwala @foxstarhindi.”
