It’s not fair for an actor to take body doubles: Tiger Shroff

Actor Tiger Shroff, who promises awe-inspiring action scenes in his new film “Baaghi”, says it’s not fair for an actor to take body doubles.

While the concept of body doubles has existed for long in tinsel town, Tiger told IANS: “I did all the stunt scenes myself because I think it’s not fair for an actor to take body doubles. That’s why I worked so hard and did them myself as much as possible.”

“If there was a body double, I would rather allow him to be the hero of the film. It’s not right to take his credit. I tried my best to be honest to the character,” he added.

“Baaghi” brings back the successful team of the 2014 film “Heropanti” — producer Nadiadwala, director Sabbir Khan and actor Tiger. The film, which is releasing on April 29, is a rebellious love story, and features Shraddha with Tiger for the first time on screen.

Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bhardwaj has mentored Tiger Shroff extensively in Kalaripayattu and the power-packed action sequences before he started shooting for “Baaghi”.

Bhardwaj, who was extremely impressed by Tiger’s hard work, says it was an emotional journey for him.

“When I was roped in, it was my responsibility and liability to prove Tiger at his best.”
