Tiger Shroff: I take huge pride in taking the legacy forward of Student of the Year


Tiger Shroff is popular as an action star and for the first time he will be playing a lover boy in Student Of The Year 2. Talking about the same, he said, “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.”

“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,” added the actor.

A source had earlier informed a leading Indian daily, “The first SOTY film was a love triangle set in a college campus, but the second won’t have another leading man. It’s a solo-hero film. Karan has always been a Jackie Shroff fan. Working with his son is something he wanted to do from the time Tiger was ready to make his debut.”

Speaking about his forthcoming films, Tiger had said to a leading Indian tabloid, “Early next year, I start Student of the Year 2. That’s the only film I’ve confirmed my dates for as of now. The rest will depend on how long this shoot takes. The Rambo shoot is scheduled to kick off towards the end of next year. The film with Hrithik sir will start before that.”
