Tiger Shroff's big debut film 'Heropanti', produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, had everyone wondering who will play the female lead. Speculation was rife whether is would be good friend Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya or sexy Katrina Kaif's sister, Issabelle. But Sajid has signed on south siren Tamannah instead.
Jackie and Ayesha Shroff's son has been training extra hard for his debut in 'Heropanti' to be directed by Sabir Khan. Daddy Shetty did everything to push for his daughter as did Katrina. After all Sajid has hits like 'Houseful 1', 'Houseful 2' and 'Heyy Babyy' to his credit in the recent past. Being Jackie Shroff's son would be an added attraction.
Sajid had seen Tamannah act and was pleased with her performance. He also wanted an established actress (she is called the queen of Kollywood) who would be able to stand tall with Tiger who is new to this area. Tamannah was thrilled to sign on knowing that this can make her into a Bollywood star as Sajid is a producer to reckon with.
