Tiger: I can’t do comedy like Varun Dhawan or Ranveer Singh

Tiger Shroff, it appears, has no time to celebrate. Even as his latest release, War, continues to wreak havoc at the box office, he is spending long hours on the sets of his next, Baaghi 3. The actor owes his career to the Baaghi series and is making earnest efforts to give the audience his best.

Tiger’s second last release, Student of the Year 2, had failed to live upto expectations as far as box office is concerned. The actor, in a recent interview, said that his audience didn’t accept him getting bullied by college kids. He said, “My audience doesn’t take my experimentation well. Right after Baaghi 2 [2018], I was seen being bullied by college kids in Student Of The Year 2. That wasn’t appreciated by my fans. SOTY 2 recovered the money but didn’t fare as well as we had hoped for.”

Fully aware of the expectations the audience has from Baaghi 3, especially after the smashing success of Baaghi 2, Tiger even gave his own inputs for the film’s script. “I had a lot of feedback [on the script]. Ahmed sir [director] and the producer [Sajid Nadiadwala] were kind enough to hear my suggestions,” the actor said.

Tiger is often criticised for sticking to the action genre but the actor believes in “exploiting his strengths to the maximum.” He said that he can’t be compared to anyone in the genre of films that he does. On being quizzed if he worries about being typecast as an action hero at a time when his contemporaries are experimenting, he said, “I would never dare to compete with Varun Dhawan or Ranveer Singh. I can’t do comedy like them. So, it’s fair to say that main apni jagah theek hoon. I am choosing roles that display my action abilities.”
