The Baaghi actor talks about why he likes to do his own stunts, co-star Shraddha and much more in an exclusive interview...
Two rebels in love Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor are all set to take you on a journey with them in their upcoming flick Baaghi
, directed by Sabbir Khan. From the action packed sequences to the jaw dropping locations, this film looks promising as a full on entertainment package for the masses. Tiger, however, hopes that his love story with his school friend Shraddha gets accepted and appreciated by one and all.
It is not very often that you strike a conversation with a multi-talented actor who is also a very humble soul as well. No points for guessing that we are talking about the man of the hour Tiger himself! Don’t be misleaded by his soft-spoken nature as the one-film-old actor has stunned the masses with his acting chops and impeccable stunt sequences in Heropanti.
When BollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY caught up with the Baaghi actor, he revealed a few things not many know about him. Sitting on a comfy sofa, Tiger was gracious enough to greet the journalists coming his way. One thing that all Tiger fans MUST know is that unlike many other actors, Tiger Shroff is always on time for any event or interviews. Donning a white shirt and baggy pants, he looked summer ready. His upcoming film sees him as a rebel but let us just put this out in the universe that Tiger is the most humble human being anyone can ever come across and that he’s an actor is just icing on the cake. So sit back, relax and READ ON the exclusive things he revealed in a candid conversation and also take a look at the video below: How was it like having Grandmaster Shifuji as your co-star?
I thought I was accomplished in whatever little I have done and I used to feel very proud of my accomplishments but then when I met this man (Grandmaster Shifuji) I came to know what talent really meant because he showed me that there’s so much more in the world of martial arts. What I know is a little branch, what he knows is the mother of all martial arts so he has just given me a sample of that to display in this film. I am very blessed to have a master like him. How was teaming up with Shradhha Kapoor for the first time?
I have known Shraddha since I was a child. We have been good friends. We were in the same school. I have always been a fan of her work ever since she joined and now I have a chance to work with her as a new comer so it’s a big honour to be alongside her in the same frame and I hoping that people enjoy our romance and our chemistry on screen.
How was it having Shradhha Kapoor as your co-star for the first time?
You know for me the definition of being a rebel is standing up for what you believe in. I was never very good at studies; it’s not that I wasn’t good; it’s just that I didn’t try. My upbringing was very focused on sports and martial arts and I am sticking by that.I love hard work whether it's in a film or in martial arts or in my private training area. I get a sense of productivity from that and whatever little I am today is because of that training not because of my education but I am very thankful to all my teachers who taught me. So I have had a Baaghi moment in my life. How do you prep up before going shirtless for a scene? Any special diet?
I have had a very physical oriented lifestyle so I am most of the time in shape. No special prep or anything. Your take on body doubles...
I don’t believe in body doubles because I don’t believe in taking other’s credits. I have always said this before, if there is a need of a body double then he might as well be in my shoe and be the hero because he deserves that credit, I don’t want to take somebody else’s credit. I think that’s why I work on every aspect. I really want to feel like I deserve what I get. If i get a little acceptance, I want to feel like I deserve that little acceptance.
