Tiger Shroff will star in a film set in the post-pandemic world

Actor Tiger Shroff is set to star in an action film set in a post-pandemic, dystopian era. Sharing a teaser motion poster that goes with the theme of the film, titled Ganapath, Tiger wrote on Instagram, “This one is special for me, and especially for you guys! Presenting #Ganapath — get ready for more action, thrill and entertainment!”

The teaser has a dialogue by Tiger that goes: "Jab aapan darta hai nah tab apan bohot marta hai (when I get scared, I bash up a lot).” The action-packed thriller is helmed by director Vikas Bahl, who directed Queen and Super 30 in the past and and produced by Jackky Bhagnani. Ganapath is planned as the first film of a franchise.

“This film is different for me from the rest of the films I’ve done till date because of the character I play. After multiple conversations with Vikas and Jackky, the script and scale look promising. I am really looking forward to this one. This will be my first time working with Jackky and Vikas and it will be exciting to collaborate with them,” said the Baaghi actor.

Jackky Bhagnani is equally thrilled. “I look at Tiger as a global star. He has all the potential and every ingredient that makes him unique and sets him apart. His films have slick action with an international flavour that appeals to the audience all over the world. I am sure the combination of Vikas and Tiger will make magic and redefine the action genre,” he said.

For director Vikas Bahl working with Tiger and Pooja Entertainment is the perfect synergy of like-minded forces. He said, “I am very excited about working with Tiger. It’s a challenge to pull off the scale for a script that is set-up in a futuristic world, but with an actor like Tiger and a partner like Jackky Bhagnani and Pooja Entertainment, I am sure that we will be able to bring this larger-than-life vision to fruition!”

The shoot begins in mid 2021 and the film is scheduled to release in the following year.
