Tiger Shroff breaks a jaw
Debutant actor Tiger Shroff apparently got carried away while shooting for an action sequence for 'Heropanti' and broke the stuntman's jaw
Sajid Nadiadwala’s film, 'Heropanti', which will be Tiger Shroff’s debut vehicle, is an action-drama. Accordingly, the actor had undergone six months’ special training to get his action sequences right. However, Tiger seems to have been carried away while shooting one of his scenes recently.

A source close to unit says, “Tiger was shooting a particular scene for the film at a Mira Road studio. He was required to put a certain amount of energy into his kick. But then he miscalculated and ended up hitting the stuntman quite hard; the stuntman broke his jaw. Soon after, the producer made sure that the stuntman was attended to. The production house also took care of all his medical expenses and worked towards his speedy recovery.”
When contacted, director Sabir Khan confirmed the story. “When we were shooting this scene, the stuntman didn’t react in time, so his jaw was injured. But we rushed him to the hospital and had him treated. We later shot the same scene with another stuntman,” he said, adding that after this incident, Tiger has been more careful while shooting action scenes.
