The film will mark the second collaboration between Sutaria and producer Nadiadwala. The duo is also working together on an upcoming romantic action Tadap, co-starring debutant Ahan Shetty, which is a remake of 2018 Telugu film RX 100.
Sutaria and Shroff will be reuniting after Punit Malhotra’s teen romantic drama Student Of The Year 2, co-starring Ananya Panday. Sutaria was last seen in a Hindi romantic action film Marjaavaan (2019), co-starring Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh and Rakul Preet Singh.
Heropanti 2 will be a sequel to the romantic action film Heropanti, which was directed by Sabbir Khan. The 2011 release was Shroff’s debut film. The actor-director duo have also worked together on the Baaghi franchise, starring Disha Patani in Shraddha Kapoor and Disha Patani.
Nadiadwala’s latest releases include Housefull 4 (2018) and Baaghi 3 (2019). Apart from this, his other projects include sports drama 83 (directed and co-produced by Kabir Khan and Vishnu Vardhan Induri), starring Ranveer Singh as cricketer Kapil Dev along with Deepika Padukone. The production house also has Bachchan Pandey (starring Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon) and Kick 2 (the sequel to Salman Khan’s Kick) lined up.
