Tiger Shroff, who is all set for the release of his action film Baaghi, admits that the film has pushed him to an extent of hard work which he never realised existed.

“I think any film I do next would be much easier for me. We wanted to show the audience something different, something new. My character demands a lot of action. So we had to work very hard towards it,” Tiger told Firstpost in an interview.

Since his debut film Heropanti is also an action film, many have termed Baaghi as a sequel to Heropanti. Tiger however argues, “Heropanti was a love story and a family drama. This is an action film. You can’t compare Baaghi with Heropanti. It’s a very different film and nothing close to Heropanti."

Tiger is striving hard to create a distinct identity for himself. "I don't want people to say that I am better than others. I just want to be known as different from others. I will be extremely choosy about films I do at this point of time,” he said.

Tiger might be an ardent fan of Hrithik Roshan, but his father actor Jackie Shroff however wants him to look up to Shah Rukh Khan.

Ask Tiger if he endorses his father’s belief, and he says, “Shah Rukh Khan sir is so humble and modest as a superstar. He is so disciplined when it comes to work, I think that’s what my father means. I am not saying I am successful or anything but if I do become successful, he wants me to follow the mind-set Shah Rukh Khan sir has. As far career graph, skills and talent are concerned I look up to Hrithik Roshan.”

Tiger also spoke about working with his father, Jackie Shroff, “He is a super actor with huge screen presence. Who will see me if I am in the same film as him? (laughs). No, I would need a little time to work with my father.”
