Tiger Shroff is hopeful that the first branch of his martial arts academy will be up and running in Mumbai next month.
The actor says this is his attempt to get the youth to learn martial arts, something which has helped him in his acting career. "Today's youth lack that kind of physical exposure. They are all glued to their phones. I want to wean them off their cell phones and motivate them to take this up. Most of my fans are children, so I am doing this for them. It is important for our youth to be educated. People are aware of its [fitness] importance, but not everybody has the resources to study," the star-son says.
Tiger also plans to open martial arts centres in Pune, and later in North India.
