After Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, Bollywood’s action hero, Tiger Shroff has caught the eye of a Hollywood director, Lawrence Kasanoff, who is set to give Baaghi big break in Hollywood. However, things have not been finalised yet. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror:
Bollywood’s latest action hero Tiger Shroff is all set to take his rippling muscles and death-defying stunts to Hollywood. Mirror has learnt that the 28-year-old actor has caught the eye of a top Hollywood producer, Lawrence Kasanoff, who flew to Mumbai over the weekend for a final round of discussions with Tiger for his next big project. Tiger is also set to star in Siddharth Anand’s official Hindi remake of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo.
According to a source close to the development, during the hush-hush trip, Tiger had several meetings with Kasanoff, producer of the Mortal Kombat series, at a suburban hotel.
A source close to the makers has told the leading tabloid, “Along with Larry, a big studio head, some of their associates and Emmy Award-winning writer Sean Catherine Derek of the Batman series had also flown to India. Sanjay Grover, who has been a part of the project for the last one year, was also present at the meetings. Larry shared the script of his film with Sanjay (Gulshan Grover’s son, previously served as a director, Special Projects at Hollywood Studio, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM). He has also been associated with films like The Hobbit, The Zookeeper, Fame, Creed and the James Bond franchise) who suggested they bring on board a fresh new face to play the lead and strongly recommended his childhood buddy Tiger with whom he had studied in school, to play the lead. Larry and his team were impressed with Tiger who they felt has an international look, is trained in martial arts, has a large fan following and has age on his side.”
Mirror’s report suggests, the action hero will be fighting with Hollywood biggies like, Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee in the film. The source further told the leading tabloid, ““This could be the biggest break for an Indian actor in a big budget, mainstream Hollywood film which could spin into a worldwide Intellectual Property Franchise like Mortal Kombat. Casting an Indian actor in the main lead in a Hollywood film is a first for Larry too.”Well, SpotboyE.com’s wishes Tiger all the very best and we are sure his fans can’t wait to see him star in a Hollywood movie. Ahoy! Jackie Shroff and wife Ayesha are very excited, koi shaque?
