With Baaghi 2, Tiger Shroff has definitely raised the bar to an extraordinary level. The action drama, which also stars Disha Patani, has become the highest opener of 2018 by earning Rs 25.10 crore at the first day of its opening. The latest box-office reports are out and, Baaghi 2 is all set to cross 50 crore mark in 2 days. Tiger Shroff’s performance in Baaghi 2 has been winning hearts everywhere. Calling him Bollywood's next action star, actors Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan are all praise for the Heropanti actor.
Akshay compared Tiger to Thai action hero Tony Jaa, best known for "Ong Bak" and "Tom-Yum-Goong" films, and said the actor is a "force to reckon with" in Bollywood.
"Take a bow Tiger Shroff. Bollywood can proudly announce that we have our very own Tony Jaa in the industry. Your action is a force to be reckoned with. #Baaghi2," Akshay tweeted.
Calling Akshay the original action star of Hindi films, Tiger said, "Thank you so much sir means the world coming from you! But we had you much before me and thank you for giving guys like me an opportunity to follow after you."
