Tiger Shroff is all set to create a new benchmark for himself and break some records on March 6 with the release of his next movie, Baaghi 3. In the span of just six years since his debut in Heropanti (2014), when the movie grossed Rs 72.6 crores worldwide, to the first of the Baaghi franchise (grossed Rs 125.92 crores worldwide), and almost doubling it at the box office with Baaghi 2 (grossed Rs 257 crores worldwide). Now all eyes are on this highly talented and youngest action star, waiting to see how many records, the third part of the franchise, will break. The Baaghi 3 trailer has already crossed 100 million views in just three days and the reviews are proof of how Tiger is emerging as teh strong element of the film.

While popular among the masses, Tiger definitely not only has wide popularity but also, a pan-India appeal. Owing to this, Baaghi 2 was one of the highest-grossing Bollywood films of 2018. It speaks highly of Tiger Shroff's pull at the box office and his ability to draw in the youth, including children. The actor has a huge fan following among kids who throng the theatres to watch his action and dance. While being a brilliant dancer, Tiger can emote and has done some superbly executed action sequences in his just eight-film old career. Initially, the critics found his dancing skills and stunts praiseworthy, today, the actor is praised equally for his ability to emote powerfully in whatever scene he does. Bollywood is all praises for this extremely hard-working actor who is known to rehearse to perfection, before each scene, dance and action sequence. Arguably, the most disciplined actor among today's generation, Tiger is known to be an early riser who prefers to work on his scenes than the party.

While the makers of Baaghi 3 are aiming to gross at least Rs 300 crores worldwide at the box office, what makes Tiger and the movie a unique treat to watch is his high-octane, skilled action sequences. Right from Heropanti, Tiger has been learning some new form of action for each and every film. In preparation for the role in Heropanti, he underwent flexibility training under fitness trainer Ziley Mawai for acrobatics and gymnastics. For Baaghi 3, while it's been reported that he has trained in Krav Maga, a combination of techniques sourced from boxing, wrestling, judo and karate, Tiger met taekwondo athlete Milica Mandic in Belgrade, Serbia briefly and did some kicks and punches with her. He is also said to have learned the use of machine guns, shotguns, and pistols. In Baaghi 3, Tiger is said to have upped the scale. While taking on the might of a country, jumping off cliffs and skyscrapers and setting off blasts, Tiger doesn't use body doubles.

Hence the audience expectations are huge for Tiger Shroff's Baaghi 3. Shot in some exquisite virgin locales in Georgia, Turkey, and Serbia (apart from Indian territories), the scintillating action, chase sequences, larger-than-life story, drama, and thrills is said to be on a never-seen-before level than any of Tiger's movies. Yet, with an emotional streak that people will connect to. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has spared no expense and director Ahmed Khan and Tiger have pulled out all the stops to make sure that Baaghi 3 is one of the biggest and most-talked about action entertainers of 2020. With Baaghi 3, Tiger's three-times-the- 'Ronnie' avatar is a treat for the classes and the masses – the multiplex audience and the single-screen audiences. It's been made to cater to all tastes and people.
