Take a look at Mr Adarsh's tweets here:
Other than Tiger Shroff, Baaghi 3 also stars his father Jackie Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Ankita Lokhande, Vijay Varma, Chunky Panday and Jaideep Ahlawat. Tiger Shroff reprises his role as Ronnie while Riteish plays his brother in the film.
Baaghi 3 opened to mixed reviews on Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "Tiger Shroff does have broad shoulders. But they aren't broad enough to enhance the weight of a film as unashamedly flimsy as Baaghi 3. It is worse than a mere misfire. It is a damp squib."
Directed by Ahmed Khan, Baaghi 3 is the third instalment of the Baaghi series.
