The first edition of the franchise was directed by Karan himself but SOTY 2 will be helmed by Puneet D Malhotra.
This marks Tiger’s first association with the Dharma banner. Son of veteran actor Jackie Shroff, Tiger has plump projects in his kitty including an untitled venture with Yash Raj Films co-starring Hrithik Roshan and the official Hindi remake of Hollywood’s legendary actor Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo.
Tiger was launched in Bollywood by Sajid Nadiadwala in a film titled Heropanti directed by Sabbir Khan in 2014. It’s been over three years he has been in the film industry and has already won a million hearts. His latest release Baaghi 2 has proved to be a roaring success at the Box Office.
