Didn't choose 'SOTY 2' to break any stereotype: Tiger Shroff
Tiger Shroff has emerged as an action hero in the current generation of Bollywood stars, but the actor said he did not choose "Student of the Year 2" to break any stereotypes. Before Tiger made his acting debut in 2014, he was seen doing daredevil stunts off-screen. After featuring in a string of films, the actor has cemented his position as an action star.
Trying something else with 'Student of the Year 2': Tiger
In his next "Baaghi 2", Tiger will yet again be seen doing power-packed stunts. However, in "SOTY 2", Tiger will move away from his macho image and transform into a naive student. "I am trying something else with 'Student of the Year 2'. That's a complete contrast from 'Baaghi 2'. I am getting bullied and beaten up. Here, it is the opposite," Tiger said.
The sequel film will be directed by Punit Malhotra
SOTY 2 is the sequel to the hit 2012 Karan Johar directorial, will be helmed by Punit Malhotra. "I don't have much action in the film. I didn't choose it to break the stereotype. It was an honor to work with Dharma Productions," he said about his decision to do the film. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalized, he said.
"It's great as an actor to explore different facets"
"It is Karan Johar's baby franchise, his prized possession and he is passing it on to me, so there's an expectation. I take huge pride in taking the legacy forward of 'Student of the Year'," Tiger said. "For me, it's great as an actor to explore different facets. I've never played a regular, normal lover boy. It's like a musical," the actor added.
