Many of Indian Kung Fu trainers feel that Tiger, who will be seen doing action scenes in his forthcoming film “Baaghi”, can help raise a word around the marital art, says the film's director Sabbir Khan.
"Kung Fu masters from across India have been reaching out to the team and are applauding Tiger. They believe that Tiger's words will help create awareness about the origin of Kung Fu and help promote the form of martial arts," Sabbir Khan said in a statement.
Tiger has performed many Kung Fu moves in 'Baaghi', under the supervision of Master Shifuji.
'Baaghi', which also features Shraddha Kapoor, is set to release on April 29.
