Actor Tiger Shroff is gearing up for the release of his upcoming Bollywood film Baaghi, with Shraddha Kapoor. The film, which releases on 29 April, is directed by Sabbir Khan of Heropanti and Kambakht Ishq fame. 

It features Tiger in an intense character, as the title explains, a rebel. And Tiger can be seen doing  a lot of action in the promos of the film. Action, which is more close to the reality than the usual larger-than-life one usually sees in Bollywood films these days. 

In fact, the actor's last on-screen outing, Heropanti, saw him indulge in a lot action sequences. Quiz Tiger on his views on portrayal of unrealistic action sequences in films and pat comes his reply:

"I am not interested. I've grown up watching Bruce Lee and Jacky Chan films. Those are the people who inspired me. So even in Bollywood films, I am more inclined towards showcasing action which is real. I am doing films which are action-oriented but you won't see blasting cars, flying men in those."

But, would he ever take up any project where his character demands him to adopt that kind of exaggerated action, and Tiger says "no". "I will never do that kind of action in my life. I am very clear in my mind that even though I am exploring with the films in Bollywood, I'll never do any such films that have 'larger-than-life' action sequences. I want to show the form of action which is real, something which has more impact, something that wows the audiences even more. I don't believe in stuntmen." 

"I am driven by that kind of action and I am working harder on my techniques and body to justify that," he further adds.

Baaghi is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his banner Nadiadwala Grandsons.
