Tiger Shroff’s performance in Baaghi 2 has undoubtedly added to its success. Many have stated that this could well be Tiger’s best performance till date. Padman star Akshay Kumar had even hailed Tiger as India’s Tony Jaa. Even Hrithik Roshan, who will be working with Tiger soon, labelled him as the ‘best action hero’ of the Indian film industry. Other stars who are equally impressed by his performance include Arjun Kapoor, Suniel Shetty and Anil Kapoor who feels Tiger is the ‘new king of the jungle’.

Additionally, the Tiger Shroff-Disha Patani pair is new in Bollywood and that could have possibly added to the hype.
Directed by Ahmed Khan, the film is a sequel to 2016 hit Baaghi. Tiger will be next seen in Student of the Year 2, which is being produced by Karan Johar.
