Mozart of Madras and Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman and celebrated lyricist Mehboob have joined the team of Tiger Shroff’s upcoming sequel in the Heropanti franchise, Heropanti 2.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news as he took to Twitter to share the announcement. “AR RAHMAN – MEHBOOB JOIN #HEROPANTI2 TEAM… #ARRahman [music] and #Mehboob [lyrics] come on board for #Heropanti2… Stars #TigerShroff… Directed by #AhmedKhan… Produced by #SajidNadiadwala… 3 Dec 2021 release,” the post caption read.
Later in the day, Tiger Shroff also shared the news on his social media and called it an “absolute honor and privilege to work with the legendary maestro.”
Tiger had marked his Bollywood debut with the actioner Heropanti in 2014, which was directed by Sabbir Khan.
Tiger had broke the news about sequel of Heropanti 2 with a post on his social media handle that read, “My first love is back ❤️ action, thrill, like never before! Lets celebrate this one together on the 3rd of December in cinemas.”
The film will star Tara Sutaria as the female lead. The actor had earlier shared the screen space with Tiger in 2019 release Student Of The Year.
Tara had also revealed about her involvement in the project with an Instagram post that read, “Amped for this one.. A new journey begins with my #NGEFamily 💖❤️💖 #Heropanti2.”
Tiger, who is quickly becoming the bonafide action superstar of Bollywood, has a deep love for the genre, as his Heropanti director Sabbir Khan had earlier revealed to indianexpress.com. “Tiger is an action director’s delight! when the director thinks of something fantastic, here is an actor who wants to give his all and try and achieve that. He is not someone who’d say ‘this is tough, I can’t do it, let’s find a body-double, or find (a way) around it.”
Helmed by Ahmed Khan, Heropanti 2 will release on December 3 in theatres.
