Bollywood's new age action hero Tiger Shroff turns 27

The action hero in Bollywood died when Shahrukh Khan spread his arms wide standing in a mustard field in Punjab. Not only Kajol but all the women in India sitting in the theatre watching that very scene from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge at that very moment had made Shahrukh Khan the man of their dreams. And that announced the death knell for an era that began with Amitabh Bachchan and continued with Mithun Chakroborty, Sanjay Dutt, Sunny Deol, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Suniel Shetty. Amitabh had quite a stretch throughout the '90s till he finally re-invented himself as the grand, old patriarch in Mohabbatein. Mithun vanished. Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty switched to comedy. Ajay Devgn began experimenting, with an Ishq here and a Zakhm there. Somehow, Sanjay Dutt and Sunny Deol persisted with their action films even though their stardom was dying a slow death with the star-graph of the three chocolate heroes, the Khans, rising. When Tiger Shroff made his debut in Heropanti, people noticed that he dances well and does action scenes even better. His role did not demanded much acting and Tiger certainly was knowing it but who cares what he did was accepted by the public and the movie declared a hit for the debutant actor. Tiger's next two film choices Baaghi and A Flying Jatt were crafted on the same template: stunts, action scenes and dance. These three things Tiger is exceptionally good at and he does it will very good perfection and wellness. Now we are sure tiger will be a real tiger of Bollywood in the coming phases of Indian cinema.
