Debutant Tiger Shroff has been creating waves with his Greek God looks and high-octane stunts performed in his debut film, Heropanti, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The actor has executed yet another breathtaking act in the movie. Directed by Sabbir Khan, the action romance film required him to jump off a 260 feet tall building. The crew shot the sequence recently on the outskirts of Mumbai.
Director Sabbir Khan says, “It was extremely scary because Tiger had to first make a run on a thin ledge, and then jump off the building from the 20th floor. Any minor error could prove fatal, but Tiger always insists on doing all his stunts himself, minus any exterior help like cables etc.”
A unit source confirms, “We shot the jump-off scene in the city. Tiger was keen to perform this stunt on his own as he has performed all the other action scenes in the film, by himself.”
Audiences can’t stop raving about Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon, who display a natural flair for acting. “They certainly have a bright future ahead of them,” reveals an industry insider. Tiger has put in immense dedication and hard work, leaving no stone unturned for his debut film. A fresh face from Delhi, Kriti Sanon too marks her Bollywood debut with the much-awaited action – love movie.
The film’s music is also being highly appreciated by the masses. The makers have collaborated with Manj Musik for ‘Whistle Baja’ and Tiger’s signature step choreographed by Ganesh Acharya has become a massive hit across the nation. Mohit Chauhan’s voice strums heartstrings with the soulful track ‘Tabah’ and Arijit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal add spark to the peppy number ‘Raat Bhar’.
Heropanti is the story of two young conflicting protagonists, their battles with society and their coming of age love story. Directed by Sabbir Khan, Heropanti stars debutants Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the movie is slated to release on 23rd May 2014.
