Will lose my muscles for a role: Tiger
The actor who is known for his dance skills and action roles says he would consider changing his appearance for the right role
Tiger Shroff says though he likes to flaunt his dance skills and well-built body on screen, he would be willing to lose his muscular looks to play a boy-next-door character in the near future. Be it Heropanti or Baaghi, the actor has always showcased his action, dance and martial arts skills. Asked if he is ready to reduce his muscles for any role, Tiger says, "Yes, I won't mind losing my muscles for any role, say a boy-next-door. Having said that, I want to make a mark as a larger than life hero, like Salman Khan sir has, that's kind of an on-screen image I want."
In his forthcoming film Munna Michael, based on dance and action, Tiger will be seen as a street dancer who is a die-hard Michael Jackson fan. The actor believes he is a fairly good dancer and says he went through intensive rehearsals to get each and every single dance move right.
What makes him go through this process despite having the option for a re-take while filming? "I think only through practice you can reach perfection. Yes, I can do a lot of re-takes, but taking the extra effort will help me to prove myself."
After making his Bollywood acting debut in 2014 with Heropanti, he became a star. Still, he has managed to maintain warmth with people around him. Is this thanks to his father, Jackie Shroff's influence? "My dad's personality definitely influenced me a lot. Dad didn't change even a little bit after becoming a celebrated actor. He stayed in a chawl even after the success of his films, stood in a queue for public toilets. Watching him while growing up, those things teach you a lot. So yes, earning respect and staying humble is the life lesson that he's taught us," says Tiger.
