#CatchChitChat: Tiger Shroff on the success of Baaghi and his superhero film, A Flying Jatt

Sabbir Khan's Baaghi, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, has managed to emerge a clean hit at the Box Office.

The film has raked in collections of almost Rs 70 crore in just 10 days.

This is the second time that Tiger Shroff has worked his magic on the Box Office. His last, Heropanti, was also well received by the viewers.

And Baaghi has proved that the young actor is a hit with audiences in the heartland of India.

Tiger interacted with Catch and spoke about Baaghi, his father Jackie Shroff, his next film, A Flying Jatt and much more. Excerpts from the interview:

Did you expect Baaghi to do so well at the Box-Office?

I didn't expect the film to do this well and the audiences have been so kind to accept the film and appreciate it.

I think it is a fantastic feeling to be accepted by the masses. We had made a massy film and it is great that the film worked at the multiplex as well as the single screens.

I am just two films old and I am just very thankful that masses have accepted me and I hope they continue to accept my work.

How did Jackie Shroff react to the success of Baaghi?

He is very happy that Baaghi has done well at the Box Office because he knows that I have worked really hard for the role. He thinks I genuinely deserve the love from audiences. My dad keeps a track of the box office collections, but I am not much into it.

Does back-to-back success add to a certain amount of pressure?

Yes, every film's success adds a certain pressure and increases the audience expectations.

Tell us about A Flying Jatt, your first superhero film!

It was very difficult to be a part of superhero film. To fight like one, walk like one, speak like one superhero was very difficult. I am just a normal guy when I am not wearing the superhero costume.

There is an amazing love story between the characters played by Jacqueline Fernandez and me in the film.

We did not get to see you dance in Baaghi. Will A Flying Jatt make up for it?

In A Flying Jatt you will get to see a lot of dancing.

You can't even imagine what can Remo Sir and I do together in dancing. A Flying Jatt is like an ABCD 3 + a superhero film.

How do you plan to promote A Flying Jatt?

The promotional campaign for A Flying Jatt will be bigger that what we did for Baaghi.

That is a superhero film and it is a bigger risk than Baaghi. There will be a lot of merchandise and a marketing plan for the film. Baaghi was a simple commercial film, that one has a lot more.

Are you open to playing negative characters?

Yes, I would love to play a negative role. Playing a negative character like Sudheer Babu had inBaaghi would be really exciting for me. I would love to play a negative lead opposite Hrithik Roshan in a film.
