The trailer of Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor’s Baaghi - A Rebel for love features the two actors flaunting some killer moves. We have now learnt that the newbies shot their action sequences without any help of cables.
In a small video released by makers of Baaghi, Tiger and Shraddha are seen performing the stunts all by themselves. Speaking about the action sequences, director Sabbir Khan told Hindustan Times, “It was extremely tough designing the action for Baaghi because although I was aiming at never seen before action I had to do it keeping the kids in mind as Tiger is very popular among the kids and they love to see and emulate him. What made it very tricky was right at the onset we decided not to use a single gun fire or any weapon, it had to be real fighting.”

“I brought on board two extremely talented stunt coordinators - Kecha Khampadee from Thailand and Javed Ejaz from Mumbai to execute my vision. We rehearsed each and every sequence the way a song is rehearsed. We had choreographed the minutest detail a year before we even started principal shooting. A lot of credit goes to Tiger and Shradhha for believing in my vision for the action and enrolling in the action camps we set up and training for weeks, helping each other like buddies. The trailer was just a glimpse of what is to come.”
Shraddha has not only tried her hands on action but also donned a bikini for the film. “It’s for the first time that I wore a bikini for a film. It was a beautiful experience. I hope I get compliments,” Shraddha told reporters at the trailer launch last month.
