Was Salman Khan the original choice for ‘Baaghi 2’? Director Ahmed Khan answers

‘Baaghi 2’ has been creating the right noise, and why not? With state-of-the-art action sequences and a maestro like Tiger Shroff, it just couldn’t go wrong!

However, at a time when the film was yet to go on floors, we heard Salman Khan was the makers’ first choice. As we caught up with director Ahmed Khan today, he gave us the answer. (Also Read: Race 3: Pictures of Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor from the film’s set make it to internet)

“Salman was never supposed to be in the film. Sajid bhai (Sajid Nadiadwala) said, ‘If Ahmed doesn’t direct this film, I will. And I don’t cast anyone but Salman’. So that way, it was. He said, ‘If I make it, I will have to make little changes’. He loves the film. He said, ‘If I have to give the film, I will give it to you,” Ahmed said.

Further, is it actually a remake of the Telugu film ‘Kshanam’?

“It’s not even a rumour,” laughs Ahmed. “It is a remake of ‘Kshanam’. We’ve bought the rights”.

So now you know the truth about both rumours pertaining to ‘Baaghi 2’! 😉

Also starring Disha Patani, the film releases on March 30.
