It is yet to be seen if Baaghi 2 manages to make its place in the coveted Rs 100 crore club. The movie had some high-octane action sequences but it was riddled with holes.
On a related note, Baaghi 2, directed by Ahmed Khan, is the sequel to 2016 film Baaghi. Along with Tiger and Disha, the film also featured Randeep Hooda, Manoj Bajpayee and Deepak Dobriyal in pivotal roles.
