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