6 years, 6 big hits – Presenting the top biggies of Tiger Shroff as he celebrates 6 years in Bollywood since his Heropanti launch

By Joginder Tuteja

One of the youngest stars around, Tiger Shroff has been enjoying a loyal fan following for last few years now and hence has rightfully gained the tag of Mr. Consistent. What started as a dream journey with Heropanti exactly six years ago is taking a good enough shape with blockbusters like War and Baaghi 2 to his name and his latest release Baaghi 3 turning out to be a successful film as well despite corona virus aborting its run. Let’s take a look at Tiger Shroff six biggest grossers in the six years gone by.

War [2019] – 318 crores

This was indeed a ‘dhamakedaar’ affair for the actor, what with War turning out to be a triple century affair. With Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff sharing the same frame, the film was red hot right from the time it was announced. The actor made sure that despite his senior in the film, he made his presence felt, and how. He did well both as a protagonist and the antagonist.

Baaghi 2 [2018] – 166 crores

This one shook the industry, and how. Tiger Shroff had two back to back under-performers behind him in the form of Munna Michael and A Flying Jatt. Still, his producer Sajid Nadiadwala ensured that director Ahmed Khan had all resources in pace to make this one a biggie. No wonder, Baaghi 2 took a record start and eventually went way past the 150 crores mark.

Baaghi 3 [2020] – 95 crores

Baaghi 3 is the latest Tiger Shroff starrer to have released which despite the corona virus scare managed to find an audience till theaters were open. Especially at the single screens and in the interiors, the Sajid Nadiadwala production did quite well. The film was cruising past the 100 crores mark and if not for the pandemic, it had a chance to cross the 150 crores milestone.

Baaghi [2016] – 77 crores

This is the film that started it all when it came to big ticket audiences for the young star. After Heropanti, Tiger Shroff took a few notches ahead as Baaghi ended up doing almost 50% more business than his debut affair. This time around, the action was of a different level altogether. Audiences gave their nod of approval as well and the film turned out to be a superhit.

Student of the Year 2 [2019] – 73 crores

The film wasn’t received as warmly as Student of the Year. Still, the second installment just about managed to go past the lifetime total [70 crores] of the Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra starrer. The film featured Tiger Shroff as a rather vulnerable college student, something that didn’t quite go down with his fans after his heroic act in Baaghi 2 before that.

Heropanti [2014] – 53 crores

It was a ‘heroic’ start for Tiger Shroff as producer Sajid Nadiadwala decided to launch him with Heropanti, an action musical love story. While his father Jackie Shroff had shot to fame with Hero, it was just apt that Tiger was seen on screen with Heropanti. It started well at the box office, stayed good too and then ended up as a comfortable hit theatrically.
