Disha Patani who has been brought aboard for the sequel for Sajid Nadiadwala's action flick, Baaghi, opens up about working with him.
Sajid Nadiadwala is known for giving best launches - Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon... how does it feel to be leading heroine of his banner?
"I feel very fortunate. I know he really takes care of his artists and treats you like a family. When I met him I felt so protected as he takes up all the responsibilities and makes sure you are on a right path. So, I feel very fortunate and lucky that I have Sajid sir, the same mentor, as Tiger has. I have always wanted to work with Sir especially the way he moulded his career in Heropanti and Baaghi. Sir has a knack for getting right with everything and is extremely encouraging. He takes charge of everything and encourages you to do the good work."
He is also known to give his heroines a huge marketing platform and present them in a very special way, what do you have to say about it!
"Yes of course! I remember about Priyanka Chopra as she did a film with Sajid sir called Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and how famous she got after that film. I love Priyanka Chopra, that's why I am talking about her. For sure, he takes charge of everything and wants everything to be perfect which includes everything. He is a businessman. He wants you to come out as a star as well as an actor. He does not concentrate or focus on one thing; he wants you to be a package. This is a special trait of him and I am lucky to be with him because now I don't need to stress about anything. I just need to work, give my 100% as things are taken care of."
Baaghi is a huge success and has been loved by the audiences. How does it feel to be a part of it?
"I loved the film and its action. I have watched it so many times especially the climax, the fight sequence. Now in the sequel, I can't reveal much, but it's a completely different setup and the story. And it's a very special story. When I heard I was thrilled! My character is something that I would love to do. I don't know how much can I talk about the film but it's just amazing to be part of it. Because I think Baaghi was kind of a revolution in terms of action, like nobody has made an action film like this. We have had many action films, but Baaghi was very different in terms of doing physical action and not using body double or much of harness."
Pairing with Tiger Shroff, the best action hero.
"He is like a perfectionist. He is a focused man and is someone who inspires me. Whatever he does, could be dance or action, he gives his 1000%. I have worked with him on an album and it was so hard for me to even stand next to him when he is dancing. He goes into a different zone and is very passionate. We are very good friends as well. So I think for us it will be easier to work together as we used to dance together. So there is certain kind of understanding that we have. I know for a fact that I have to really work hard to be able to match up to him or to be able to just stand next to him."
