Tiger Shroff who will be seen in a Dharma and Yash Raj production films says he is excited to work with big production houses for the first time.
Tiger interacted with the media on Thursday at the launch of his Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Matrix gym along with his sister Krishna Shroff and mother Ayesha Shroff.
When asked about his upcoming projects and how excited he is, Tiger said: “I am feeling fortunate and excited that I have a line-up of good films which include ‘Student of The Year 2’ and a film with Hrithik Roshan sir. I am very excited about these two big films and I am very excited to be a part of such big production houses for the first time.
So, I am feeling a bit nervous and thankful. I am very happy that ‘Baaghi 2’ did well, but after that, it will be a tough act to follow for me. So, fingers crossed to both those films.”
Talking about the launch of Matrix Gym in Mumbai Tiger said, it feels like the right time to open a gym for martial arts in India,
Ever since my first film came up, mother and children often used to ask me that from where and how I learned martial arts. So I didn’t have an answer for that. I used to train at Juhu beach. It’s not exactly the safest place for everybody to go and learn. I was lucky enough to get through it, so that’s how I came up with this idea to open a gym,”
“Now, I also have space to train. This place is for youth, adults, and children. I think here we have a one-of-its-kind facility in India. I am very grateful that now we have access to such a facility and MMA being such an upcoming sport not only all over the world but India as well. So, I think the time is right to venture into something like this.” he added.
Tiger was last seen in ‘Baaghi 2’ opposite Actress Disha Patani. His upcoming release will be the Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year 2’ with Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria.
