After Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone making waves in Hollywood, it is now time for an actor to fly to LA. And it is none other than Tiger Shroff. The Heropanti actor, who is trained in martial arts has aroused interest in producer, Lawrence Kasanoff for his next film, in which Shroff could play the leading man.
A source informs, “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 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,” added the source.
“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,” the source signs off.
How happy are we for Shroff!
