When Tiger Shroff's bed had to be sold off
Tiger Shroff recently opened up about the worst phase of his life, which happened after Boom failed. Boom, which was produced by his mother Ayesha, released in 2003. The movie's debacle wrecked the family, so much so that they had to sell their furniture. "Things I'd grown up seeing around started disappearing. Then my bed went. I started sleeping on the floor," Tiger said.
"It was the worst feeling of my life," Tiger said during his interview with GQ magazine. For the uninitiated, Boom, which marked Katrina Kaif's Bollywood debut, turned out to be a huge disaster. Apparently, the movie was leaked online before its theatrical release, further affecting its box office collection. Besides, Jackie Shroff's erratic financial decisions added to the woes of their family.
Given the struggles his family faced due to his parents' experiments, the Baaghi actor opted for doing what he's best at, i.e., action. Tiger feels that his audience finds it difficult to accept him in different roles. This was evident after his movies A Flying Jatt and Student Of The Year 2, which belonged to a different genre, failed at box office.
"Every time I do something offbeat, (the audience has) not been as kind, to me. I don't think they could digest me coming from Baaghi 2 to being beaten up by college students in SOTY2," the Munna Michael actor was quoted as saying.
Talking about his career, the Baaghi series played a key role in making Tiger stand out from the crowd. In fact, the 2014 release Baaghi was Tiger's first box office hit. While he did have some releases later, his second hit came with the second installment of Baaghi franchise in 2018, which also featured Disha Patani in the lead role.
As of now, Tiger is looking forward to the release of War, along with Hrithik Roshan and Vaani Kapoor, which is slated to release on October 2. For the action drama, both the actors, Hrithik and Tiger, underwent rigorous training to pull off the high-octane action sequences. Like, for a particular bike stunt, they had to be precise, otherwise, they would have hurt themselves.
