The actor also shared about the passion he has for the work he is doing and said, "Nothing can match the impact of the large screen. When you go and watch a film at the theatre, it has a larger-than-life impact. I love cinema and would like to focus on that."

Fans were seen carrying banners of Tiger Shroff to the theatres. Selfies with the posters were flooded on social media. The actor had some of his fans wearing T-shirts with his picture printed on the merchandise.

Starting his career with Heropanti in 2014, Tiger has featured in films like Baaghi and Baaghi 2. Is he interested to work in the West? "Though I have got some offers, I haven't signed anything yet. I am very lucky that people have noticed my work and have understood that I have the ability to perform action. Maybe there is a void of young action heroes in the West, which is opening a possibility," he said.

His image as an action hero is no new and the actor says the fact that he is not versatile has given him an identity in the film industry. Tiger was quoted saying, "I am not at all versatile and I look at it as a positive thing. I already have an identity of an action hero in the Hindi film industry where there is so much competition. When people talk about action heroes of the present time, one of the names could be Tiger Shroff. Yes, I am typecast but this whole thing has given me an identity and made me stand out. It makes me feel good."

But Student Of The Year 2 has proven that Tiger is also highly capable of showcasing a softer side in films.
