For the very first time, Shraddha Kapoor will shed her lovey-dovey image for an action packed avatar in Sabbir Khan directed ‘Baaghi’. The actress confesses that it was a difficult task, “For the first time I experimented with action in ‘Baaghi’. I used to be very nervous but Sabbir sir had faith in me. He kept encouraging me, which helped me in my performance.” The actress is ready to give some serious competition to her contemporaries, “I think competition is everywhere, it is something that you cannot take away from the equation. But what I do is try and improve my performance from my previous films.” Baaghi stars Tiger Shroff opposite Shraddha and is set for release on April 29.
