We catch them candid in an exclusive interview where they talk about their passion, camaraderie and love for cinema.
SHIVPRIYA BAJPAI

From your debut with Heropanti in 2014 to Baaghi 3 in 2020, how would you like to describe your evolution as an actor?

Heropanti was like school for me and my second film Baaghi was like a college. After my first two films, I gained awareness and confidence as an actor. Every film and project has helped me to understand the craft better. I have learnt so much from my co-actors and directors. I am extremely grateful to be working in this industry.

You have had your share of hits and misses in the industry, but what counts is your relentless drive to stay true to your passion for cinema. How do you tackle setbacks?

Well, I am lucky enough to witness success in the form of my first two films, and even luckier to have seen failures at such an early stage of my career. However, I don’t call them failures as I get to learn from them and improve myself. Success and failure are like the two sides of the same coin. I am thankful to have experienced both the sides, and it has made me a strong individual today.

Your rugged good looks, an envious physique like the Greek Gods teamed with a charming personality, have always been an instant hit with the ladies. How do you handle all the female attention?

I am humbled to receive all kinds of love that people shower on me. I am grateful to be in this position where I can reach out and touch so many lives. If my interactions with them bring a smile on their face or bring positive changes in their lives, then I would to love to oblige, and reach out to as many people as I can.

After the blockbuster success of the film War, you are all set to return with the third film of the Baaghi franchise. How did you prepare yourself with two back to back action films?

Well, I love doing action. Ever since I was a child, I looked up to action heroes so it is something that I do in my everyday life and constantly prepping myself. I thoroughly enjoy doing action hero roles, and don’t really take extra prepping time for the same.

How was your experience working with one of the most successful producers of Hindi cinema, Sajid Nadiadwala? If you have to describe him in three words, what would those be?

Well three words are not enough to describe Sajid sir. He is my mentor, a father figure and a teacher.

Being a part of the showbiz, constant demands of transformations added up with hectic work schedules can be really overwhelming. How do you push yourself to stay on track and workout amidst all the frenzy?

I am an early riser, but have to stay awake till late as well, depending on my work schedule. Training is either the first thing in the morning or the last thing before I go to bed. I ensure to take time out in any way or the other.

How does your current workout regimen look like? Do you prefer sticking to a routine or experimenting with different fitness modules trending these days?

I stick to what has worked for me in the past as I have been training for a long time now. If something is not working, a certain routine in particular, I tweak it to get the best outcome.

Tiger Shroff: Burning Bright

There’s a move in kung fu called ‘The Tiger’. A direct, aggressive attack that’s believed to be one of the most effective martial arts plays. But this isn’t the method that the most gentle member of the Shroff clan would choose in a fight. In fact, he’d rather not fight at all, except to win his family’s respect back. After three films and a cultish fan following, he’s still coming to terms with his name – and the destiny that’s been chosen for him.
