Tiger Shroff: I owe it to my audience to deliver a performance
Bollywood's youngest Superstar Tiger Shroff who has delivered one of the highest grossing film of the year BAAGHI 2, doesn't need a festival to score big at the box office.
In just five years, Tiger Shroff has emerged as one of the most bankable actors of the industry mounting big films on his shoulders and delivering blockbuster box office records despite non-festive releases.
The young Superstar who stepped in Bollywood with 2014's HEROPANTI delivered a superhit raking in over 72 crores at the box office and carving a place for himself with his debut film. Released in May, HEROPANTI earned high despite being a non-festive release.
The actor further continued the trend with his films, BAAGHI and BAAGHI 2 which achieved unprecedented success at the box office even without festive dates. While BAAGHI minted 127cr, BAAGHI 2 is Tiger Shroff's biggest hit with an overall collection of over 250 crores.
Expressing his gratitude towards his fans for showering their love irrespective the dates, Tiger Shroff said, "As a child, I would always look upto my festive family outings to the cinema hall. In India, festivals mostly mark to be a time of coming together of the entire family and bonding over means of entertainment. Having grown up and becoming a part of the other end of the spectrum, it is hugely rewarding to find acceptance from my audience for my films which haven't released on festive occasions.
I owe it to my audience to deliver a performance and put up a show that is entertaining and worth their time. While box office acclaim is also important, I leave it up to my producers to look into the economics."
Packing a punch with his debut venture HEROPANTI, Tiger Shroff stepped in Bollywood as the action star, with the super hit success of BAAGHI and blockbuster BAAGHI 2, the young actor has only further established himself as one of the most bankable stars.
Currently, the actor is gearing up for Karan Johar's STUDENT OF THE YEAR 2, after which Tiger Shroff will be seen in an action thriller opposite Hrithik Roshan.
