With their Bollywood debut Heropanti, directed by Sabbir Khan, hitting the screens today, the lead pair — Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon — is keeping their fingers crossed. The young actors are optimistic that all their hard work, including Tiger’s stunts without a body double, as well as the rising popularity of the film’s soundtrack, will translate into box office success as well.
Says Tiger, “I am thankful to Sajid (Nadiadwala, producer) sir and Sabbir sir for giving me this dream launch. They have been a source of strong support throughout this journey for me.”
Kriti echoes the sentiment, “It’s been a lovely experience. I’m grateful to Sajid sir and Sabbir sir for giving me this opportunity and making me feel comfortable throughout.”
It is certainly a big day for Sajid, who has been personally supervising all the details of Tiger’s launch. “I am excited to share my happiness with Jackie and Ayesha, as I have fulfilled the responsibility of launching their son. Kriti is also talented. This is the first time we are launching newcomers, so it’s a special film for all of us,” says Sajid.
Heropanti, produced by Nadiadwala, releases today.
