While young actors refrain from green-lighting similar roles in fear of being typecast, Tiger Shroff says he’s happy to be labelled an action hero. “I am blessed to be given this identity so early in my career. It’s an achievement. Right now, I am playing to my strengths,” Shroff told mid-day.
The actor’s admiration for action icons, like Sylvester Stallone, has been evident in his interviews, and his fitness prowess. “I had started preparing to be an action hero since childhood. It was always a dream. Executing the stunts that I did in Baaghi 2 was challenging. But I was passionate about it. I have Master Shifu to thank. He was instrumental in giving me the training I needed.”
