7 years ago, Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon debuted with Heropanti. The film went on to become a major success at the box office and both of them are now stars in their own right, but they have never shared screen space after the Sabbir Khan directorial. Now, they are finally reuniting on screen, for Jackky Bhagnani’s next production venture Ganapath.

The team launched a teaser look dropping a huge hint about the development. While many claimed it is either Disha Patani or Shraddha Kapoor, we can now exclusively reveal that it’s actually Kriti Sanon. The pretty Heroine has been finalised as the female lead for the actioner.

A source tells us, “It was either between Tara Sutaria and Kriti Sanon for the main role. But the makers decided to go with Kriti because she’s a more credible performer and has already proved herself as a top heroine today. She is also great with action as the Vikas Bahl directorial involves a lot of stunt sequences too. So they felt Kriti is perfect for the role.”

Kriti and Jackky have been in talks for a film for some time and they both agreed on Ganapath. There were rumours that Kriti’s sister Nupur Sanon will play the female lead in the two-part action drama. But now, the makers have decided to kickstart shoot sometime later this year with both the actors, “The film has two parts which will be shot simultaneously. Tiger plays a boxer and apart from the love track, the film also involves a beautiful father-son relationship tale. Tiger is now shooting for Heropanti 2, and will then wrap up work on Baaghi 4. Only after these two films, he will start Ganapath. Kriti, on the other hand, has a super busy year ahead. She’s currently shooting for Bachchan Pandey, then she has Adipurush opposite Prabhas, Varun Dhawan-starrer Bhediya and now, Ganapath.”
