Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke and actor Prem Singh join forces to tell an incredible true story in the new boxing drama TIGER which has just launched the world premiere of its exciting new theatrical trailer. It is inspired by the true story of Pardeep Singh Nagra, a practicing Sikh man who was banned from the sport of boxing due to his religious beliefs.
An official selection of the upcoming Austin Film Festival, San Diego Film Festival, and New Orleans Film Festival, TIGER will release in North American theaters on November 2.
Tiger is inspired by the true story of Pardeep Singh Nagra, a practicing Sikh man who was banned from the sport of boxing due to his religious beliefs. Tiger follows Pardeep’s journey as he, with the support of his coach and mentor (Mickey Rourke), does what any strong American would do, fight back! The backlash is a result of racial profiling, stereotypical threats, and the daily pressure to change, even from his loved ones who are caught in the midst of the cross fire. It is within the course of these challenges, and at his weakest moment, that he discovers love (Janel Parrish). Consequently, his legacy will be forever tied to his two biggest battles; one in the courtroom, the other in the ring.
