Tiger Shroff marked his debut in 2014’s ‘Heropanti’ in an action avatar. His next film ‘Baaghi’, which is releasing at the end of the month, will see him in an action-packed role once again. Interestingly, Shroff has shared that he is not afraid of being stereotyped.
When asked about it, Shroff commented, “No. But at the same time, I want them to come with that notion and I want them to go through the film, experience the film, and I want them to see the journey of my characters, I want to shock people. You cannot judge, the fact that they are judging me from one film that they are expecting Tiger Shroff film to be like this and like this, what does that tell you? I mean in one film have I already made my mark? I don۪t think so, but it۪s a very nice thought that people are thinking of me that way.”
Talking about reports that ‘Baaghi’ being similar to ‘The Raid’, Shroff added, “I haven۪t seen The Raid. After this whole thing started, I saw the trailers that were being compared and I don۪t know why people make such a big deal of it, because if that۪s the case, then every hero is riding a horse. Lawrence Of Arabia should file a case against them or something like that. This only means that the trailer has definitely hit people in the right spot and it۪s already made a mark and made some sort of impact and stirred some sort of an emotion. But, you know, you cannot put down somebody۪s hard work like that. So what if we have a building in our movie? We can keep a fight scene on the ground or atop a building wherever we want that۪s my director۪s vision. What else can I say? I think we۪ve worked so hard, it۪s very upsetting that people would put such things on often like that because that۪s not our intention at all. This is a Bollywood film, we have a love track, we have songs, we have Shraddha Kapoor who is fighting, there are so many characters.”
Shroff will be sharing the screen with Shraddha Kapoor in the Sabbir Khan directed ‘Baaghi’. It’s slated for release on 29th April.
