I am getting bullied and beaten up in Student of The Year 2: Tiger Shroff
Claiming Student of The Year 2 is not an attempt to break his action hero image, Tiger Shroff has revealed that he will be bullied and beaten up in the sequel to Karan Johar’s 2012 hit directorial.bollywood Updated: Mar 27, 2018 16:46 IST
Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff’s filmography mostly includes action films, but he has claimed signing up for Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2 was no attempt to break any stereotypes.
“I am trying something else with Student of the Year 2. That’s a complete contrast from Baaghi 2. I am getting bullied and beaten up. Here, it is the opposite,” Tiger said.
Much before Tiger made his acting debut in 2014 with Heropanti, he was often seen doing daredevil stunts off-screen. After featuring in films such as Baaghi, A Flying Jatt and Munna Michael, the 28-year-old actor has cemented his position as an action star.
“I don’t have much action in the film (Student of the Year 2). I didn’t choose it to break the stereotype. It was an honour to work with Dharma Productions. It is Karan Johar’s baby franchise, his priced possession and he is passing it on to me, so there’s an expectation. I take huge pride in taking the legacy forward of Student of the Year,” he added.
He was speaking at the launch of his exclusive workout format under his brand PROWL, in association with Cure.fit, a health and wellness startup. The workout, which comprises a unique mix of combat, dance, and functional fitness done to foot-tapping music, will be available for all members of cult.fit, the fitness vertical of Cure.fit.
In Baaghi 2, he will yet again be seen performing power-packed stunts. However, in SOTY 2, Tiger is likely to move away from his macho image and transform into a naive student. The film, a sequel to the hit 2012 Karan Johar directorial, will be helmed by Punit Malhotra.
Tiger said Student of The Year 2 will give him a platform to showcase a different side. “For me, it’s great as an actor to explore different facets. I’ve never played a regular, normal lover boy. It’s like a musical. If I get bullied there, the audience will be surprised. Suddenly after Baaghi 2, here I am getting bullied. So for me, that’s scoring marks,” he added.
Baaghi 2 is scheduled to be released this Friday.
