Tiger Shroff has always been an entertainer of varied interests. Though he faces the camera as a top leading man, he also takes a keen interest in the dance and action that go into his films from behind the scenes. Now comes the news that Tiger would be actually choreographing some of the stunts in his forthcoming film Baaghi 3. Explains Tiger, “It is really not as though I am taking over the action. Nothing like that. I am only providing references for some of the stunts in Baaghi 3.”
The action, says Tiger, needs to get better with every instalment of the franchise. “The Indian audience today watches the best stunts and action in the world. Avengers, John Wick, Mission Impossible, etc have set the bar high. We can no longer appease their appetite for thrills and action with flips and grunts.” Tiger says the entire Baaghi 3 team is working towards making the action scenes in the film as world-class as possible. “I can’t say much about the stunts right now. But they will be something the audience hasn’t seen before. They have to be, na?”
So is the star-fighter taking credit for the stunts this time in Baaghi 3?
Laughs Tiger. “No no. There will be official action directors on board. Sajid Sir (producer Nadiadwala) and Ahmed Sir (director Khan) are still to decide on that. I am just doing what every team member should do. Pitching in.”
Tiger was last seen in the Karan Johar production Student of the Year 2 along with newcomers Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria. The film was not a big hit but Tiger’s performance was appreciated. The earlier two editions of Baaghi – opposite Shraddha Kapoor and Disha Patani – were big hits too.
