Tiger IN NEWS
If Tiger Shroff’s A Flying Jatt was any cheesier, we would put it on a bread and eat it for lunch. The teaser begins with Nathan Jones playing a part time Sandman, part time Thor and full time weirdo villain while our Tiger plays a superhero in blue tights. You may hold your breath as the two super fellas rush together but you will only have to let it out in a guffaw after watching what happens next. Tiger looks intense enough even if his costume looks a little silly. Jacqueline Fernandez on the other hand is busy looking drop dead gorgeous as usual though we doubt she will have much to do in the film. Lovers of Krrish might like this movie it does seem about as visually outdated as a B-grade Hollywood action flick from the 90s. Do check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
After much speculation on a sequel to Sajid Nadiadwala's latest hit, Baaghi, however talks are that the second instalment is indeed in the pipeline. With the immense success and box office collections of over 70 crores of the Tiger Shroff-Shraddha Kapoor starrer, the makers have been given an invitation by the Chinese government to shoot the sequel in the country of the Great Wall Of China! Here's what Sajid had to say when he was contacted to confirm this exciting bit of news "Yes it's true. It's been a great experience working with Sabbir, Tiger & Shraddha and the story of Baaghi needs to be taken ahead. We plan on commencing the shoot in Shanghai in 2017". Further director Sabbir Khan who affirmed what Sajid said shared, "It was a great experience shooting with Sajid Bhai and I'm very excited to start work on Baaghi 2. As a producer, sajid bhai stays in the backdrop and yet he lets his director achieve everything that you imagine. If something is needed for the betterment of a project, he will ensure it is made available." It is also heard that Tiger who is already a natural when it comes to action , may even be trained by expert martial arts trainers from China! We caught up with Tiger to ask him about the sequel, to which he said "Sajid sir is the best mentor I could have asked for. I'm really looking forward to taking Baaghi to the next level with the sequel"
At the end of its opening weekend, Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Baaghi has registered India box office collections of Rs 38.58 crore. This puts the Sajid Nadiadwala production helmed by Sabbir Khan at the third spot of the highest Bollywood openers of 2016 so far. Interestingly, the first two day numbers, Rs 23.07 crore, are higher than first week collections of Heropanti, Tiger’s debut that was also produced and directed by Sajid and Sabbir respectively. Trade sources attribute the success of the rebellious love story to the chemistry between Tiger and Shradda, the former’s rise as the next action star, courtesy his skills in Indian martial art like Kalaripayattu and foreign like Muay Thai and Kung Fu among others. “Not to forget the marketing campaign spearheaded by Sajid Nadiadwala. The way he positioned and promoted it, the movie has not only set the box office ringing in the single screens, it is also bringing in the crowd in the multiplexes,” observes a distributor. A theatre chain official adds, “A young love story with a good soundtrack, new age action and fabulous production values is the formula that Sajid worked to the maximum with Baaghi. He understands the pulse of the audience and ensures he has the perfect team -- an appropriate director, cast and technicians on board -- in keeping with the subject. The film is holding strong on Monday too and is likely to register fantastic numbers by the end of the second weekend.” There is no doubt that Sajid, who’s having a good run at the ticket windows with his movies, is the man with the Midas touch. From over the last two years, his films are having the audience thronging to the theaters. From those featuring younger talent like Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor and Tiger in movies Highway, 2 States and Heropanti, to biggies like Kick with Salman Khan and Tamasha with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Having tasted blood this year too with Baaghi, there’s surely no stopping Sajid as he has movies like Housefull 3, Dishoom and Rangoon lined up in the months to come.
1/2 Jackie Shroff’s incredibly agile, martial-arts loving, pink-lipped son Tiger is back with yet another action packed offering, Baaghi. And while his first film Heropanti proved to be a surprisingly successful one, let’s see what he has managed to come up with this time. Right off the bat, Baaghi won’t be winning any screenplay innovation awards. It tells the tried and tested tale of a young man and a young girl who meet in the rain and fall in love. It also involves a train journey in case that one Bollywood romantic cliche isn’t enough and the duo soon fall madly in love. But of course Shraddha’s father is a money grubbing idiot who decides to marry her off to the meanest looking goon in town played by Sudheer Babu. Conveniently enough, it so happens that Tiger’s rebellious ways has resulted in him being packed off to a top secret, shaolin temple inspired martial arts school where he turns into the Karate Kid and gets beaten up by his own version of Mr. Miyagi played by the incredible Master Shifu. Armed with these sick martial arts moves, our rebel decides to bring down Sudheer Babu’s crime syndicate in a Raid Redemption inspired climax. Director Sabbir Khan does a fair job of delivering an action packed film but not a romantic one. The movie goes for all style and no substance making the whole thing feel rather dull. The action of course is nothing short of brilliant, and if nothing, we definitely have a true action star in Tiger Shroff. Tiger Shroff moves like nothing you have seen in Bollywood before, thereby setting the bar for action films to follow. But he really struggles when it comes to emoting in front of the camera and the dull premise of the movie doesn’t help things. Shraddha’s job is once again to look pretty and be annoying which she does to good effect. But we know that she is capable of more and one can’t help but feel that she has been wasted. Overall, Baaghi still does little more than tease the potential of Tiger Shroff. It works very well as an action film but one can hardly call it a proper entertainer. Go for Tiger’s moves if you must, just don’t hope for anything more.We shall go with two and a half stars for this movie.
While Tiger Shroff is one lad who can’t seem to keep his shirt on for too long, nobody expected his sister to follow in his footsteps too! Tiger’s sis Krishna Shroff stunned everyone recently by posting a few topless shots to her Instagram account. Shot specially for a magazine, the images are undoubtedly tasteful and even though this is 2015, topless photos are still relatively rare in Bollywood as compared to its western counterpart.
Which is probably why the pictures have already gone viral on the Internet. Ironically, Krishna Shroff does not want to be an actor. She is more interested in wielding the microphone and we hear that she has already made a documentary called Black Sheep which is based on the trans-gender community of Mumbai. Well, with a director this pretty we are sure her stars will be quite insecure!
