After much speculation, Tiger Shroff has finally broken his silence on whether or not he is making his Hollywood debut. Turns out, stepping into the shoes of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, the 29-year-old Bollywood actor is also very much ready to be catapulted onto international screens.
In September last year, a Mumbai Mirror report had claimed that the Student Of The Year 2 actor had caught the eye of Lawrence Kasanoff, top Hollywood producer who had bankrolled the Mortal Kombat series. The producer had reportedly visited Tiger in Mumbai for a final round of discussions.
On being asked by Hindustan Times about what’s stopping him from taking up an international film, he was quoted as saying, “Nothing is stopping me. I may end up doing one soon. But right now, it’s in the initial stages, discussions are on and I can’t talk about it. It’s an action film… Let’s see when can we get things going.”
Well, this is certainly huge news for all Tiger Shroff fans. On the film front, Tiger’s last screen outing Student Of The Year 2 alongside Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria and Aditya Seal, just hit the theatres on Friday. The film, bankrolled by Dharma Productions’ head honcho Karan Johar, met with mixed reviews by critics and audiences alike.
Reportedly made on a budget of Rs 80 crore, the film hasn’t been able to sail past the Rs 50 crore mark in its five-day run at the box office. It would be facing a sem box-office clash with Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet’s De De Pyaar De and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum this Friday.
He would next be seen in Siddharth Anand’s yet-untitled film alongside Hrithik Roshan and Vaani Kapoor. The film is slated for an October 2, 2019 release. He would also go on to star in the third instalment of the Baaghi franchise opposite Shraddha Kapoor in Baaghi 3, scheduled for a March 6, 2020 release.
Tiger would also be seen in another Siddharth Anand directorial, which is a remake of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo. The movie was announced at Cannes Film Festival in 2017 but was later put on the back-burner. The director had confirmed to Mumbai Mirror that it would go on floors in November this year.
