The Student of The Year 2 actor revealed that he doesn’t mind being ‘linked-up’ with a good-looking girl like Disha Patani
Mumbai: Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani’s relationship is like an open secret. Even though the rumoured lovebirds have never spoken up about their relationship, they have never denied it also! However, this time Tiger Shroff has decided to talk about it. During an interaction with My Nation, the actor was quizzed whether speculations about his relationship with Disha affect him, to which Tiger replied, “All that is a part and parcel of the game. It makes me look good; she is such a good-looking girl!”
Rumoured lovebirds Tiger and Disha were seen together in Baaghi 2 last year, which went on to become a massive success at the box office and also turned out to be a gamechanger for Tiger’s career.
Commenting on the same, Tiger said, “After Baaghi 2, people have started looking at me differently. My expectations from myself have gone up, the audience is also expecting more from me now. I didn’t expect the film to do what it did. For a while, I couldn’t believe that the film has actually collected 165 crores. I have seen how my life changed after getting that number. People have started looking at me as a bankable star. Suddenly, I started getting a lot of respect (after the film). It feels really good.”
He added, “On the set of Student of The Year 2, people were calling me sir and I am not used to that. I told them please don’t call me sir, I am younger than you. Suddenly there is too much respect from everywhere. It feels really nice that people are appreciating me for what I have done. I guess people didn’t take me as seriously before Baaghi 2.”
On the work front, Tiger’s latest movie Student of The Year 2 is releasing today. The Puneet Malhotra directorial has Tiger in the lead along with two newcomer actresses, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria. Sharing his experience of working in the second movie of the Student franchise, Tiger said, “It’s a light-hearted film, completely different from Baaghi 2. I am playing a student in the film. I have never been to college in real life, so tried to live that experience through the movie.”
The actor, who is known for his fitness, dance and love for sports also shared how the film highlights the importance of sports in our day to day life. Tiger said, “Kabaddi has a major role in the movie. The film will definitely encourage people to go out and play a sport, have fun and engage in healthy competition.” He added, “Especially, in schools, we should also promote sports side by side with studies. A child goes through a more holistic experience through his schooling. It is so important nowadays because we are living in a very tech-savvy world. To get out of that, we should do something once in a while, like get out and do some outdoor activity, get some vitamin D.”
Student of The Year 2 has been directed by Punit Malhotra. The film, which releases today also stars Farida Jalal, Aditya Seal and Samir Soni among others.
