Mumbai: Actor Tiger Shroff is set to share the screen with his father and veteran actor Jackie Shroff for the first time in Baaghi 3, the makers announced on Thursday.

In the third instalment of the action-drama, directed by Ahmed Khan, Jackie will play the on-screen father of Tiger and his co-star Riteish Deshmukh's characters.

“In a cameo appearance, the 62-year-old actor will essay the role of a police inspector in Baaghi 3,” producer Sajid Nadiadwala said.

"Everyone has been waiting to see Tiger team up with his 'Hero' father Jackie since we launched him. There have been plenty of speculation and no one has been able to bring them together in the last six years as the duo was categorical that they would only share the screen when a film and role merited their presence.

"Ahmed and I feel the story line required Jackie to be a part of the film and I believe our visions matched to understand how it's a pivotal role in the film," Nadiadwala said in a statement.

The producer said having Jackie on board will add to the film's expectations.

"I am confident no one will be disappointed by this double dose of Shroffs and will stand as a strong USP," Nadiadwala added.

Jackie started shooting for the film on Wednesday.

The movie also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Ankita Lokhande and is scheduled to be released on March 6.
