More and more screen heroes are determined to project a squeaky-clean image off screen. After Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan who refused to indulge in screen villainy, it is Tiger Shroff who won’t do negative roles.
“I’ve to think of the young people who come to watch 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,” says Tiger.
He will, therefore, not play negative or grey characters. “I’d rather play positive people. I am a pretty positive person in real life. I’d want to project that positivity in the roles that I play,” says Tiger.
When told that in this, he’s following Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff expresses great delight. “I am so glad to hear that. Hrithik Sir has always been my idol. To follow in his footsteps is my greatest desire as an actor.”
In fact, Tiger Shroff intends to take tips from Hrithik Roshan on how to approach his role in the remake of Rambo directed by Siddharth Anand. Hrithik Roshan, it may be recalled, was the first choice for the desi Rambo. Says Tiger Shroff, “It is an honour to step into space created for Hrithik Sir.”
