Tiger Shroff reveals why he will never play a negative role
Since the inception of his Bollywood career, Tiger Shroff has played a protagonist. One might think he will gradually start making diverse choices as he grows as an actor. However, as far as his own choices are concerned, Tiger never intends to act in a negative role.
He would credit it to his dedicated fan following, especially the youth who looks up to him or any popular star, for that matter. Playing a negative character might send out wrong messages is what he believes. (Also Read: Tiger Shroff-starrer ‘Munna Michael’ faces the scissors of CBFC)
“I have to think of the young people who come to watch my films. A lot of them look up to us, expect us to set an example. They follow the clothes we wear, the way we talk and behave. It is very important to be correct in our behaviour towards women, children and elders even on screen. I’d rather play positive roles. I am a pretty positive person in real life. I’d want to project that positivity in the roles that I play,” he told DNA.
It is another debate if he is curbing the relevance of negative characters in films, since films are mostly a mirror to the society. In fact, some of the finest actors of the present generation are constantly reinventing and discovering themselves by choosing to do challenging characters with grey shades.
Tiger’s last film ‘Munna Michael’ failed to do good at box office. He now looks forward to the remake of ‘Rambo’, for which Hrithik Roshan was the first choice. The actor, who is an ardent follower of Hrithik, is glad he has been chosen for the same.
“It is an honour to step into a space created for Hrithik sir,” he says.
