Tiger Shroff became a name and face to reckon with, with his very first film. His fourth film, Baaghi 2 is all set to hit screens on Friday, March 30 and the actor is feeling under pressure. Not because he is worried about how his fan will like him in his latest outing but to make his own identity in the industry. In his four-year-old career, Tiger has realised that rather than succumbing to pressures of the industry, moving forward is the only way. The actor, who is the son of veteran star Jackie Shroff, says he is in a hurry to create his own identity. “Because of the pressure, I am trying to climb ladders much faster… I’m blessed to be in the position that I am today — to have that acceptance and (to be able to) say that I am my own man, I am not just Jackie Shroff’s son. It’s what I have set out to do, to create my own identity,” Shroff told PTI in an interview here. Also Read - It's a Wrap!

The 28-year-old star counts his connect with the youth as one of his biggest pluses. “I want to inspire the uninspired. I want to move people and stir some emotion. I want to create a revolution. I have sort of initiated a spark in people. Most of my fans are children. That’s a huge booster for me as they are the most honest members in the audience. They are the future of the country. And if I am leading them, inspiring them in the right way, it’s a great feeling,” Shroff says. Also Read - Disha Patani’s Yellow Monokini Picture Goes Viral For All The Right Reasons
Talking about “Baaghi 2”, a sequel to his 2016 action movie, which cemented his position as Bollywood’s latest action star, Tiger says that he is hard on himself when he faces failure and when “A Flying Jatt” and “Munna Micheal” didn’t do well, it was hard for him to get over that. But with his latest offering, he has pushed the envelope. Also Read - Salman Khan And Disha Patani Romance in Lonavla Hills For Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai
“I’m very tough on myself. When a film doesn’t work it sort of puts me in a dark space, until I start working on the next. So, it’s a brief period. Learning from my failures had only helped me get better. I’ve never been as confident as a performer as I am today,” he says. His Friday release is a sequel and is being released within two years of the original, which was a massive hit. Tiger is aware of the expectations, “The pressure is on but we have scaled up things in every way. It’s a beautiful love story to drive everything forward, especially the action. It has an emotional quotient, it’s not just a show reel,” he adds. Featuring his rumoured real life lady love Disha Patani as the female lead, “Baaghi 2” releases this Friday.
