Disha Patani: Career as an Actress
The Telugu film Loafer, starring Varun Tej, was Disha Patani’s debut into the world of the golden screen.

Finding her Break in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story
Her real break into Bollywood was through the epic movie “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story” in 2016. It was based on the life of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain of the Indian Cricket Team from 2007 to 2017 (2008-2014 in the case of Test Matches). The movie was a great hit. It starred the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput as Dhoni and Patani and Kiara Advani as his love interests. In the movie, although Disha’s role was limited (she died in a car accident), her beauty and acting skills were on display for everyone to see. The movie was a massive hit and had an IMDb rating of 7.9/10. The movie went on to make 29 million USD. Her performance was acclaimed by many critics. Patani has also starred with the legendary Jackie Chan in the movie Kung Fu Yoga.
Baaghi and After That:
Her next movie was the sequel to the 2016 hit movie, Baaghi. Baaghi 1 starred Shraddha Kapoor and Tiger Shroff while in Baaghi 2, Disha Patani replaced Kapoor.

Disha Patani: Some Controversies
When the Black Lives Matter movement was aflame, it caught the whole world within it. People from all countries around the world were showing solidarity with the movement. Disha Patani too, was one amongst them, despite starring in many ads which advocated the use of fairness creams and skin-lightening products. She was called out for the same.
Who is Disha Patani Dating?
Tiger Shroff has been rumored to be the person Disha Patani has been dating for years. But the two actors have themselves never made it official. There are many indications, of course, and slip-ups from other stars. However, the two parties themselves have never revealed such a thing, so for all means and purposes, we can only say that Disha Patani is rumored to be dating Tiger. Recently, Tiger Shroff’s mother, Ayesha Shroff, took to Instagram and wished Disha Patani an adorable birthday wish. The post was also commented upon by Tiger’s sister, Krishna, and Disha thanked Ayesha for her blessings. This, of course, added fuel to the flame of the rumors once again. You can see the post for yourself here.
Back in January 2021, everyone thought Anil Kapoor mistakenly settled the fact that the duo is indeed dating. In the Kapil Sharma Show, a comedy-interviewing sort of show, Anil Kapoor made a statement. When asked by the host, Kapil, about which actor’s diet he would steal, Anil’s answer was Tiger Shroff. He also added that he has stolen “His Girl’s diet.” One can only assume he was referring to Disha Patani, as they worked in Malang together.
Coming back to recent times, on Disha’s birthday, Tiger took to Instagram and posted an unseen video of them dancing together! They have also been on many trips together, and let’s not forget that one time they violated COVID restrictions, and Mumbai Police called them out in the funniest way possible! But they have never confirmed it, and hence, all we know is that they are “very close friends.” Well, whether Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani are dating or not, we wish them all happiness!
