Mumbai, June 9, 2021: Tiger Shroff starrer Heropanti 2 was one of the first films to begin shooting after the lockdown was lifted last year. However, the second wave of the covid-19 pandemic again forced the production to be paused as most of the states went into lockdown including Maharasthra.
Now, as the Covid lockdown is seeing some relaxation, most of the films are ready to resume production. Heropanti 2, which also stars Tara Sutaria, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, will head to Russia in July to shoot the next schedule of this action entertainer.
The cast will start shooting in Moscow followed by St. Petersburg in Russia next month. Apart from filming some major action sequences, the team will also shoot a song in Russia.
"The team is planning to shoot major action sequences and a song in Moscow and St Petersburg. The team has been scouting the perfect locations along with the local team there", a source close to the development revealed to ANI.
"We are also in talks with multiple stunt designers to get the larger-than-life action sequences and one of them is Martin Ivano who is known for his work in Skyfall (2012), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), and The Bourne Supremacy (2004). Sajid Sir is making sure that all the crew members are vaccinated before the teams fly to Russia", the source added.
The source also informed that producer Sajid Nadiadwala of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment is making sure that all the cast and crew of Heropanti 2 are vaccinated before they leave for their schedule in Russia.
Heropanti 2, which is a sequel to 2014's Heropanti, is being directed by Ahmed Khan. Tiger had made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti which was directed by Sabbir Khan. On Tiger Shroff's 31st birthday, the makers announced that the movie will release on December 3, 2021, in theaters.
