Long before Nawazuddin Siddiqui entered the filmy scene, renowned actor Manoj Bajpayee proved that being fair and stereotypically 'handsome' was not required for talented actors. Winner of two National Film Awards and 4 Filmfare Awards, Manoj is known for his acting finesse regardless of what the role may be, and has garnered a hefty fan-following for himself due to his acting prowess.

Although the filming of Baaghi 2 was announced earlier, starring rumoured real-life couple Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani, now Manoj Bajpayee has also joined the cast. An action thriller film, Baaghi 2 is a sequel to 2016 hit film 'Baaghi' which starred Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor.

According to reports, Manoj Bajpayee will be having a pivotal role in Baaghi 2 as he essays an important character with a twist.

“Manoj really liked the script. He is also very fond of the casting director, Mukesh Chhabra, and director Ahmed Khan, who he has known for many years. Ahmed had choreographed him in Ram Gopal Varma’s Satya. He will start shooting for the film soon,” a source said to media.

Prateik Babbar, who was last seen on the big screen in 2015 movie 'Umrika' will also make his comeback with Baaghi 2.

The movie is slated for release on April 27, 2018.
