Tiger Shroff, the 28 YO made his debut in Indian cinema with the 2014 movie Heropanti. Ever since the actor has been at the receiving end of trolls on multiple occasion. There have been times when cinema-goers found him to be feminine looking. People also trolled him for being too fair or gora chikna on multiple occasions. But none of these critiques on his physical appearance eclipse the fact that he is one talented lad. His physique and macho abilities are second to none. He is trained in martial arts, is a brilliant dancer and a good actor.
And seems like Hollywood agrees with these characterisations. In fact, many believe that Tiger Shroff has an international appeal. And this is why he might soon land up as a lead in a Hollywood movie.
Yes, it’s true. As per recent reports, Lawrence Kasanoff of Mortal Kombat fame was recently in Mumbai. And he was here to meet none other than Tiger Shroff. Apparently, the producer is discussing an upcoming project with the actor.
The reports quoted a source as saying the following about Tiger Shroff and a possible casting:
“Larry shared the script of his film with Sanjay who suggested they bring on board a fresh new face to play the lead. And strongly recommended his childhood buddy Tiger with whom he had studied in school, to play the lead. Larry and his team were impressed with Tiger who they felt has an international look, is trained in martial arts, has a large fan following and has age on his side.”
It turns out it was Gulshan Grover’s son Sanjay Grover who recommended Shroff to Kasanoff. Sanjay Grover’s association with Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) is nearly for a decade. He has worked on projects like The Zookeeper, The Hobbit, James Bond franchise and Fame Creed.
The source further added:
“This could be the biggest break for an Indian actor in a big budget, mainstream Hollywood film which could spin into a worldwide Intellectual Property Franchise like Mortal Kombat. Casting an Indian actor in the main lead in a Hollywood film is a first for Larry too.”
The project is going to be a huge undertaking. It will feature late martial arts star Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee as well as Jackie Chan. Now, this is definitely going to be huge for Tiger Shroff.
We hope everything works out and Tiger rocks the international cinema as well.
