First film, lead role, an amazing film maker to start with, great script, and a star father is all that debutant Tiger Shroff has. The lucky youngster seems to be on the top of this world because soon this year he will be seen in his very first film Heropanti. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Sabbir Khan, this movie will be a complete package as it has a little of everything from romance to drama and from dance to action. Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon will play the lead pair in Heropanti, for which Tiger has been working hard since a long time now. Finally nearing the release, the actor could not stop himself from expressing his excitement over his debut. He said, “It has been a really long journey, firstly of understanding the movies and the craft and then immersing myself totally into the character and becoming it. Following that began the actual shooting. So yes I am really eager to see how the entire team’s hard work comes across, especially since it was a cast and crew that were entirely new.”
Sajid Nadiadwala and Sabbir Khan are equally excited about making the film, especially with Tiger Shroff, who is veteran Jackie Shroff’s son. The 21 year old actor had to master his skills in martial arts and dance for Heropanti, which he did with much dedication. Sabbir is responsible for making him take the much detailed training sessions that helped a lot in shaping the boy’s character in the film. Talking about the film Sabbir said, “It has been an exciting journey. Apart from Tiger and Kriti (Sanon) being newcomers, the rest of the cast and crew are relatively freshers. In fact, the average age of the unit was about 23/24yrs. The shoot shifted from Punjab to Mumbai and from Delhi to Kashmir. We’ve shot for endless hours but the energy and spunk of the unit was infectious and I think we’ve given it our all.”
This Sajid Nadiadwala flick releases on 16th May this year!
