Tiger Shroff Believes He's Best Suited For Action, Can't Compete With Varun Dhawan or Ranveer Singh
Tiger Shroff shared that his fans have not been very happy when it comes to experimenting with genres as they enjoy his action films more
Tiger Shroff, son of famous 90s Bollywood hero, Jackie Shroff, is a huge name in the industry right now. He started his career with 2014’s Heropanti, and since then, garnered a huge fan following of his own. Apart from acting, Tiger is also well-versed with action sequences and dancing. Some of his hit films include the Baaghi franchise - the third of which is currently in the making - and the recently released War, opposite Hrithik Roshan. But while most actors in Bollywood have experimented with different genres, Tiger hasn't. He has often limited himself to action and dance films.
In an interview with Mid-Day, Tiger shared why he hasn't forayed into other genres yet. He said, " My audience doesn't take my experimentation well. Right after Baaghi 2 in 2018, I was seen being bullied by college kids in Student Of The Year 2. That wasn't appreciated by my fans. SOTY 2 recovered the money but didn't fare as well as we had hoped for." He then added that he is currently filming Baaghi but was still aware of the audience's expectations from his next film. Tiger continued, "I had a lot of feedback on the script. Ahmed Khan, the director, and the producer Sajid Nadiadwala were kind enough to hear my suggestions."
Many argue that Tiger uses his set of action films as his safety net. However, the actor has a different perspective to it. He explained, "It's competitive these days. You have to exploit your strengths to the maximum. I can't be compared to anyone else in my generation in the genre of films that I do. I would never dare to compete with Varun Dhawan or Ranveer Singh. I can't do comedy like them. So, it's fair to say that main apni jagah theek hoon. I am choosing roles that display my action abilities." Apart from Baaghi 3, Tiger has also got Rambo in the pipeline
