Mumbai: Actor Tiger Shroff, who promises awe-inspiring action scenes in his new film Baaghi, says it's not fair for an actor to use body doubles.

While the concept of body doubles has existed for a long time in tinsel town, Tiger told IANS: "I did all the stunt scenes myself because I think it's not fair for an actor to use body doubles. That's why I worked so hard and did them myself as much as possible."

"If there was a body double, I would rather allow him to be the hero of the film. It's not right to take credit away from him. I tried my best to be honest to the character," he added.

Baaghi brings back the successful team of the 2014 film Heropanti — producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director Sabbir Khan and Tiger. The film, which is releasing on 29 April, is a rebellious love story, and features Shraddha Kapoor with Tiger for the first time on screen.

Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bhardwaj has mentored Tiger Shroff extensively in Kalaripayattu and other power-packed action sequences before he started shooting for Baaghi.

Bhardwaj, who was extremely impressed by Tiger's hard work, says it was an emotional journey for him.

"When I was roped in, it was my responsibility and liability to prove Tiger at his best."
