Mumbai: Post his power packed debut in 'Heropanti', Tiger Shroff is ready to show his intense side in the upcoming high octane action drama film 'Baaghi' alongside Shraddha Kapoor. Present at the trailer launch were the two on-screen rebels Tiger and Shraddha along with the film’s director Sabbir Khan and producer Siddharth Roy Kapoor.
When asked Shraddha about Tiger being a rebel, she funnily reveals, "Tiger is an amazing rebel. He is focused with whatever he does."
"I am a rebel for a purpose. In real life I am not a baaghi but I try my best to stay firm on my decision. I have never hit anyone in college but I got bullied a lot. I was a fast runner so I used to run away but never harmed anyone," Tiger adds.
When asked Tiger how people reacted after watching the trailer’s final cut, he says, "When we watched it for the first time, I was lost in the trailer but second time when we saw it, I heard the reaction, and it was amazing. We were so excited and charged up that we fell from our seats, but definitely the trailer looks amazing and encouraging."
It's been two years since Tiger stepped in Bollywood and after two years long break, he is coming back on-screen, when asked the reason for this, he says, "I got acceptance so early. I think the second film is more important than the first one so I was not in a rush."
For the first time ever, Shraddha will be seen flaunting her bikini body for which the actress is quite nervous, when asked about it, she reveals, "Fingers crossed. Every actor wishes that audience go and watch their film and like it. In fact, apart from this, I tried to do what Tiger can do. I got to do something different in the film. When you have Tiger beside you, you tend to get great tips." "When Baaghi was offered to me I was hoping to do some action and hopefully I got to do it," she adds.
Director Sabbir Khan shared an incident where Tiger met with an accident. He reveals, "Tiger was badly injured when he had to do one scene where he had to break a wash basin and there he harmed himself so we had to halt the shoot.
"Tiger is very good to do action. We had to raise the bar for him," he adds.
'Baaghi' is considered to be one of its own kind of rebellious love story, when asked Tiger about his chemistry with Shraddha, he says, "It was very easy, I was very comfortable around Shraddha. We were in the same school so I remember doing the workshops with her. We had fun time in reading. The romance in our film is quiet strong and we had fun dancing together."
Shraddha joins in and says, "I was his fan since school days when he used to play basket ball. He used to be always in Jersey. When you go to school with someone and then end up acting together, it is so exciting. We were very excited to work together."...
