Both posters of the film have the actor looking sharp and ready to take on the world.
Tiger Shroff channels John Wick in new Heropanti 2 posters
Mumbai - 28 Feb 2020 12:37 IST
Tiger Shroff is quickly becoming the go-to action hero for Hindi filmmakers. The latest poster from the actor's Heropanti 2 channels the cult image of John Wick from the Keanu Reeves-led Hollywood franchise. Heropanti 2 is directed by Ahmed Khan, and will be release in theatres on 16 July 2021.
The poster features Shroff dressed in a sharp suit and armed with an automatic assault weapon, as the world around him speeds off into the horizon. The image, with its neon highlights and very urban landscape, seems to be a take on the cult Chad Stahelski film franchise beginning in 2014.
This one is so special to me. Blessed and grateful to be carrying forward another franchise with my mentor sajid sir forward. #Heropanti2 #firstbaby#SajidNadiadwala @khan_ahmedasas @WardaNadiadwala @NGEMovies pic.twitter.com/NYi4pLoBpr— Tiger Shroff (@iTIGERSHROFF) February 28, 2020
The second poster also has touches of the same, with Shroff's unnamed protagonist walking into the eye of a lens surrounded on all sides by machine guns and automatic assault rifles.
The tagline of the posters reads, 'The World Wants To Kill Him', which seems to imply that the actor will have to go up a notch from taking on a country in Baaghi 3 (2020), to the whole world in Heropanti 2.
Incidentally, both Heropanti 2 and Shroff's upcoming Baaghi 3, share the same director. The film is backed by Sajid Nadiadwala's Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment. The first film in the franchise, Heropanti (2014) was directed by Sabbir Khan and featured Kriti Sanon in the lead alongside Shroff.
