Disha Patani’s character in ‘Baaghi 2’ to meet the same fate as that of ‘Ms Dhoni: The Untold Story’? – Disha: Double death!
Her character in Baaghi 2 to die like her character in her first film – Dhoni biopic
Tiger Shroff and his girlfriend Disha Patani are coming together on screen for the sequel of the hit film, Baaghi. Their first outing on the big screen is eagerly awaited, especially after the sizzling chemistry they shared in the music video Befikra. However, we hear that Disha will not have too much screen time with her beau in the film. “Disha will have a small, but impactful role in the film that will be a revenge drama,” says a source.
Incidentally, even in her debut film, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Disha did not have much screen time. Her character dies before the interval. But the actress made quite an impact in the small, but pivotal role as Sushant Singh Rajput’ s (Dhoni in the film) girlfriend. The film was a Rs 100 crore hit. Looks like the makers of Baaghi 2 are hoping that Disha will create the same magic in their film.
In the recent past, there have been several examples of movies where heroines have died early on and the films have gone on to become hugely successful. Maybe, the sympathy factor works in their favour, especially if the film’s antagonist has had a hand in her death. And if the plot revolves around the hero avenging his lover’s death, all the better.
