Tiger Shroff, who turned 29 on 2 March, couldn’t be in a better place even if he wanted to. His career is going great guns….no, make that blazing guns. Baaghi 2 last year was a spectacular success. Now he has all but wrapped up shooting Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2.
“We’ve just one more song to shoot. It’s the introductory song. And I guess it will be spectacular. What else could it be when it is (Karan Johar’s) Dharma production?” Tiger wonders rhetorically.
The song will feature Tiger dancing with Alia Bhatt.
"All I know is that it features me and Alia," is all Tiger will reveal.
Would Johar join the jig? “Why not? For all we know, he may do just. I don’t know the details of the song and dance yet. But I do know it’s going to be fun, as the shooting of the whole film has been. It was frothy and enjoyable. It is also a lot of pressure for all three of us who play the lead, especially the two new girls, Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria who have Alia Bhatt to be compared with in the first Student Of The Year. Both the girls have worked hard. Hopefully we will encore the success of the first film of the frothy franchise.”
Tiger has also been shooting for an action film with Hrithik Roshan.
“Audiences can expect both the expected — that is, a lot of action featuring Hrithik Sir and me — and the unexpected. I can’t reveal more about the film, not even its title. Because we don’t have any as yet. What I can tell you is, shooting with my idol Hrithik Sir has been an experience I will never forget. He lived up to all expectations, and then some more. He would spend a lot of time sharing his experiences with me. I came away enriched.”
Tiger’s next project would be Baaghi 3.
“The plot is in place, and of course Ahmed Sir (Khan) is directing. The pressure to deliver another high-octane action film after the first two Baaghi 2 films is immense. All I can tell you is, we are trying our best."
Tiger also has Rambo, another action film which is an official remake of the Sylvester Stallone franchise. “It’s a remake of Rambo. Sylvester Stallone tweeted about it. Would he make guest appearance in our film? That would be a dream come true!”
As dreams come true for Tiger one after another, one can’t help but question him about the speculation regarding his relationship with Disha Patani. Tiger takes a deep breath and says, “Well, we are seen together at restaurants for dinner and for coffee. She is a dear friend and we do go out together. Beyond that, let people speculate. Some amount of speculation is good.”
