Baaghi 3 (transl. Rebel 3) is a 2020 Indian action thriller film directed by Ahmed Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. It is the third installment in Baaghi series and is inspired from 2013 Tamil film Vettai. The film stars Tiger Shroff, Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles, while Ankita Lokhande, Jaideep Ahlawat, Vijay Varma, Jameel Khoury, Jackie Shroff, Satish Kaushik, Virendra Saxena and Manav Gohil in supporting roles.[4][5][6]

Principal photography began on 12 September 2019 in Mumbai.[7][8] The makers wanted to shoot in Syria, but Fox Star Studios declined due to safety issues, where sets resembling the Syrian topography were built in Serbia.[9] The action sequences were handled by Ram-Lakshman and Kecha Khamphakdee.[10]

Baaghi 3 was theatrically released on 6 March 2020 to mixed reviews from critics with praise for its acting, action sequences and cinematography, but was criticized for its script and direction. Despite the collections being affected due to COVID-19 pandemic, the film became the second highest grossing Hindi film of 2020, earning estimated 137.05 crore (US$17 million) worldwide gross from 111.15 crore (US$14 million) domestically in India and 25.9 crore (US$3.2 million) internationally.[3] There were plans for a re-release once the outbreak would end, but the makers instead decided to release the film on Disney+ Hotstar.[11][12]


Ranveer "Ronnie" Charan Chaturvedi and his elder brother Vikram Charan Chaturvedi live a happy life in Agra. Ronnie has been protective towards Vikram since childhood, especially after the death of their father Charan Chaturvedi. Ronnie is offered a job in the IPS, but refuses as he has FIR cases registered against him for saving Vikram in trouble. Ronnie convinces Vikram to take on the job. Though timid and reluctant, Vikram becomes an IPS officer and rises to fame in his job by having Ronnie secretly punish suspects and save victims for him. Ronnie later falls in love with Siya and they get Vikram and Siya's sister Ruchi married to each other.

One day, Vikram is assigned to leave for Damascus, Syria for routine paperwork. Upon arriving, Vikram chats with Ronnie over a video call, but is suddenly attacked and kidnapped by henchmen sent by Abu Jalal Gaza, a notorious terrorist. Ronnie and Siya travel to Syria, where the local police refuses to help them. They meet Akhtar Lahori, who helps them track Vikram and his captors. They head to Vikram's hotel, while the cops start looking for the trio. In Vikram's room, Ronnie finds Vikram's damaged phone and escapes with Siya and Akhtar before the cops can catch them. The trio finds the attacker, who is revealed to be Abu Jalal's brother.

A chase ensues in which the exhausted attacker agrees to help before being killed by a truck. Siya retrieves the attacker's phone and texts a goon IPL alias Inder Paheli Lamba to meet at a hotel. Abu Jalal Gaza arrives to avenge his brother's deathbdeath. A cop supports Ronnie and captures IPL, while Abu Jalal escapes. Fearing betrayal from IPL since he is been arrested, Abu Jalal orders his men to kill him. Ronnie and the cops cleverly stage a series of events that lead to Abu Jalal's men believing they have been betrayed by IPL. Upon being rescued by Ronnie from Abu Jalal's men, IPL decides to help him. Ronnie battles Abu Jalal's army before going to rescue Vikram and the hostages.

IPL sacrifices himself and Abu agrees to free everyone, but captures Siya. Ronnie fights Abu Jalal's men, but as Vikram starts getting enraged to see Ronnie getting brutally thrashed, Ronnie stops fighting and is stabbed, causing a transformation in Vikram, who jumps out of the cell and brutally fights off everyone, finally impaling Abu Jalal on steel rods. Vikram and Siya try to revive Ronnie. When Abu emerges to attack them from behind, Ronnie wakes and kills him. Ronnie, Siya and Vikram return to Agra and Vikram is honoured for his bravery.
