Tiger Shroff has proven to be a significant draw, and as a result, his films are eagerly anticipated not just by the trade and industry, but also by exhibitors and his fans. His most recent film, Baaghi 3 (2020), was released shortly before the closure and would have been another Rs. 100 crore grosser for the action star if cinemas had not been closed. The actor is currently preparing for the shoots of Heropanti 2 and Ganapath.
Speaking of Ganapath, a source told Bollywood Hungama that it’s going to be one of its kind entertainers. The source revealed, “The film is said to be set in the year 2090. It’ll have a dystopian setup, showing a world ravaged by wars or other such calamities. Director Vikas Bahl has worked very hard and the producers have given him all the support to ensure that the futuristic era depicted in the film will take the breath away of the viewers and emerge as one of the USPs of the film.”
Ganapath will be released on December 23, 2022, according to the makers. A teaser film featuring Tiger Shroff in street fighting mode was used to make the announcement. The futuristic-style structures in the background of this and previous trailers also hinted that the film is not set in the present day.
“If this is true, then my excitement for Ganapath has gone many notches higher. We need such VFX-heavy and visually grand films to attract viewers in post-Covid era. And Ganapath seems apt. Also, it stars Tiger Shroff and hence, it won’t be dark or anything of that sort. I am sure it’ll be a mass entertainer. Hollywood has made plenty of dystopian films and it’s high time we should do the same. Tiger Shroff seems to be a Mumbai ka chokra in the film. It’ll be interesting to see such a massy character based in the future. The audience would go crazy for sure,” a trade expert told the portal.
Tiger Shroff reunites with Kriti Sanon, his Heropanti (2014) co-star, for Ganapath. Ganapath was slated to hit the floors in September, according to previous sources. However, because Tiger Shroff will be busy shooting Heropanti 2 next month, Ganapath is anticipated to start filming in October.
