Former badminton player and Telugu actor Sudheer Babu plays the baddie in the upcoming Tiger Shroff-Shraddha Kapoor-starrer 'Baaghi'.
Tiger Shroff and Sudheer Babu
Sudheer, who makes his Bollywood debut, is the brother-in-law of Telugu actor Mahesh Babu. The actor underwent training in various forms of martial arts, including Kalaripayattu, to play his part. It was Sudheer’s show reel featuring stunts from one of his South films that made the makers of Baaghi pencil in him for the film.
The makers wanted an actor who could match up Tiger in terms of physique, action and overall energy. However, Sudheer feels that it was a tough matching Tiger’s physical fitness levels.
