Tiger Shroff has already made a mark as an action superstar in Bollywood, but he plans on taking his talents further West, to Hollywood. According to Mumbai Mirror, the actor met Hollywood producer, Lawrence Kasanoff, most well-known for his Mortal Kombat franchise, who flew in to the city to discuss his next big project.
Mumbai Mirror’s source said, “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,” the source informed.
The source also mentioned that there could be a possibility of Tiger facing off against Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, in the film and that “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.”
If all goes as planned, just like his colleagues Irfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra & Deepika Padukone, Tiger could also be part of the Bollywood to Hollywood club.
