Tiger Shroff: The reluctant schoolboy

  • Print


"Student of the Year 2 (SOTY 2) makes me feel more human. In this movie, I'm kind of stripped off my powers. If I'm punched, I'll bleed. If I'm bullied, I'll probably cry," says actor Tiger Shroff lounging in a chair in Dharma Productions' Andheri office. Ever since the 29-year-old made his debut with Heropanti (2014), he has earned the reputation of being an action hero. Movies that followed - Baaghi, A Flying Jatt and Munna Michael - further consolidated his reputation of "a tough guy".
With SOTY 2, a teen romance and drama produced by Karan Johar, Shroff has pushed his boundaries at the cost of feeling "uncomfortable and alienated". By his own admission, Shroff felt like "an outsider" on the sets even though he has been part of the industry for five years and is born into a film family "This is so unlike any of the films I have done before. I know all about the 2012 Student of the Year (featuring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra). I had big shoes to fill."
