TIGER Shroff, who delivered a box office hit withBaaghi 2, is looking forward to his kitty of new projects,but says the action entertainer is a tough act for him to follow up as an actor. He will next be seen in Dharma Productions’ Student ofThe Year 2 and he will also share screen space with Hrithik Roshan for the first time in a Yash Raj Films production. Asked how he looks at his upcoming releases, Tiger said,“I am feeling fortunate and excited that I have line-upofgoodfilmsfor2019whichinclude Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2 and a film with Hrithik Roshan sir. “I am very excited about these two big films and I am very excited to be a part of such big production houses forthefirsttime. So,I am feeling a bit nervous and thankful.

I am very happy that Baaghi 2 did well, but after that, it will be a tough act to follow for me. So, fingers crossed to both those films.” WhatwashisinspirationtoopenhisownMixed Martial Arts (MMA) specialised gym? “My inspiration behind this always has been the youth and the children of our country.I have been following this sport since the age of four. Whatever little I have achieved in my career, is all thanks to my martial arts background.  “I have been doing action films since pastfour years,soIamreallythankfulthatwhateveracceptance I have got is through this art. Ever since my first film came up, every other mother and children often used to ask me that from where and howIlearnt martial arts. SoIdidn’t have answer for that. “I used to train at Juhu beach. It’s not exactly the safest place for everybody to go and learn. I was lucky enough to get through it, so that’s howIcame up with this idea to open a gym,” he said.
