Tigor Shroff has become the first debutant actor to achieve the Rs 50-crore-mark with a solo hero launch film, Heropanti. Earlier the list of successful batch of debuts included Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Arjun Kapoor.

“It’s a good time for newcomers in the industry. The audience wants fresh faces. Our acceptance is a sign of that,” said Tiger. The actor further confessed that he wasn’t very confident during the time of the film launch. “I was stressed all the time about how people would receive me. Moreover, being my father’s son added to the pressure. Ultimately, it was my sportsman mentality that kept me going. I knew that I had to prove myself and show that I am very different from my father. Guess that worked after all,” he added, reported the Deccan Chronicle.

Talking about his contemporaries he said, “They deserve the adulation, because they are all so talented. It is so inspiring to just see them perform so well. Look at Ranveer, Varun, Arjun, Sid; these guys are fantastic. They have their own plus points and I hope after Heropanti, the audience knows that I too have something new to show. I will always strive to be accepted by them and the industry,” concluded the actor.

Aditya Roy Kapur, Ayushman Khurana and Sushant Singh Rajput have tasted success. But let us see how many of these prove to be consistent. So far Arjun Kapoor and Ranvir have showed consistency. Best of luck to the rest. It is time Amir, Shah Rukh, Salman, Akshay, Ajay stop appearing as romantic leads with girls half their age and shift o niche roles while they are still at the top.
