Heropanti was Tiger’s debut film and it also starred Kriti Sanon in the lead. Now, the franchise is being taken forward with the sequel. The first part was a remake of the Telugu film, Parugu, and was a huge success at the box office. While Sabbir Khan directed the first installment of the franchise, Ahmed Khan has been roped in to helm the sequel.
Heropanti 2 is being directed by Ahmed Khan who has earlier directed super hit films like Baaghi 2 and Baaghi 3. The film is produced by the ace production banner of producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
