Nadiadwala and director Shabbir, had earlier decided to start-off with shooting with Tiger Shroff, without a female lead for him. However, later it was rumored that Sunil Shetty’s daughter, Athiya Shetty would be a perfect candidate for the movie. However, due to unknown reasons Kriti Sanon was finally signed for the role.
Tiger will be playing a tough- guy in the movie, similar to the role played by his father Jackie Shroff in 1983’s movie ‘Hero’, which was originally directed by Subhash Ghai. It is believed that this movie is going to be an action-oriented treat for the audience.
