Tiger Shroff had a lot of action sequences in his debut film, Heropanti (2014) and his skills in gymnastics and martial arts came in handy at the time. Now, to prepare for his next, Baaghi, Tiger has trained in Kalaripayattu.

A source close to the actor says, “Tiger spent a lot of time to get the postures and techniques of Kalaripayattu right.”
