Tiger Shroff Says He's Happy With the Action Hero Tag
Tiger Shroff has recently shared screen with his 'idol' Hrithik Roshan in action thriller War, which crossed 100 crore today.
Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff, who has emerged as one of the most bankable young stars in Bollywood, has said that being identified as an action hero is more than enough for him. The actor has recently shared screen with his 'idol' Hrithik Roshan in action thriller War, which crossed 100 crore today. Tiger''s past action hits include Heropanti, Baaghi, A Flying Jatt and Baaghi 2.
"I enjoy doing action films. Today, whatever I have achieved is because of the films I have done, primarily the action films. All my inspirations like Jackie Chan and Hrithik Roshan have been big action heroes. So, I am inspired to be like them and I am inspired to do things like them," said Tiger, while interacting with the media at the success meet of his new release on Friday in Mumbai.
On his action hero tag, he added, "Currently, my peers are doing such amazing work, so how does one create an identity for oneself? I just want to create my own identity. When people identify me as an action hero, for me that's more than enough."
"I feel War is really special film for me because he (Hrithik Roshan) is somebody I look up to so, it was easy in a way to relate to my character, because my character looks up to his character in the film as well. It was a genuine feeling for me," Tiger added.
Asked if "War" would have a sequel, director Siddharth Anand said, "It's too early to talk about it, but I definitely had an idea to convert this into a franchise. We were waiting for the audience reaction to the film. Now, I am feel that it''s an audience demand more than our desire. We will soon sit together to decide our future course of action."
With a screen count of 4,000 including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu prints, War is doing well in South India too, despite stiff competition from Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
