On Monday, Tiger Shroff completed 7 years in the film industry and shared a note and a photo from his debut film ‘Heropanti’. Tiger wrote in his note that he remains as shy as he was when he entered Bollywood. ‘Heropanti’ was directed by Sabbir Khan and also starred Kriti Sanon in the lead role.
Posting a picture from Heropanti, Tiger wrote on Instagram Stories, “7 years and still the same old shy guy who likes to hide behind the hat. Thank you everyone for accepting whatever little I brought to the table. #gratitude #sajidnandiadwala #heropanti.”
‘Heropanti’ received mixed reviews when it had first released 7 years back. Speaking to Hindustan Times at the time, Tiger had said, “Yes, I have mixed feelings right now. I am a team player, so I’d have liked the film to get appreciated. At the same time, I worked very hard on the film, so I am relieved. The kind of grind that the whole team went through for one-and-half years… I’ve never pushed myself so hard in my life.”
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s wife, Warda Nadiadwala, also posted a clipping from ‘Heropanti’ and wrote, “7 Years Of #sajidnadiadwala’s Heropanti Trailer Indeed the mother of all Throwbacks! Adrenaline rush was so quenching that it’s still fresh! 7 years @tigerjackieshroff & @kritisanon have made their solid place in Bollywood & in #SajidNadiadwala’s & @nadiadwalagrandson ’ & of course my heart! Some bonds are super special #7YearsOfHeropantiTrailer.”
For the uninformed, ‘Heropanti’ was a remake of the Telugu film ‘Parugu’. The actor is now all geared up for a sequel to Heropanti. The poster for ‘Heropanti 2’ was recently released on Tiger’s birthday.
