Tiger Shroff has reportedly bagged Vikas Bahl’s next, BizAsiaLive.com has learnt. The film is said to be about a boxer who will be played by Shroff.
According to Box Office Worldwide, the film is titled ‘Ganpat’ and will commence after lockdown. A source stated, “Ganpat is essentially a sports drama set in Mumbai with Tiger playing a boxer for the first time. Vikas Bahl has been working on the script for a while now and Tiger, who loves MMA, wrestling and boxing, was looking to do a film in this space. When Vikas narrated the script to him, it was an instant ‘yes’ from Tiger Shroff”.
The insider went on to explain that this is expected to be a franchise, “Ganpat will be a two-film franchise, tracing the journey of Ganpat from a Mumbai boy to a world class boxer. Though it’s an action-packed film, at its core it’s an underdog story like Super 30, with an emotional father-son subplot. The search is on for a senior actor to play Tiger’s onscreen father”.
It’s thought Shroff has already begun preparations.
