Tiger Shroff is too good to be true: Nid­hhi Ager­wal

Ac­tor Nid­hhi Ager­wal’s de­but film, Munna Michael, op­po­site Tiger Shroff, might have tanked at the box of­fice. Yet she has only praises for her co-ac­tor, who used to help her with the mi­nut­est of thing on the set. Nid­hhi says, “He al­ways sup­ported me with this feel­ing in mind that when he was new, he was in the same place [as me]. So when­ever I was stuck, he came to my res­cue. For in­stance, I didn’t know the mean­ing of a mark or how to face light­ing, how to keep your eyes open in the sun. Plus there are re­flec­tors, so I knew noth­ing. I would be just lost and clue­less and Tiger would al­ways help me.” Asked if there were any ap­pre­hen­sions when she was signed to play the lead role op­po­site Tiger, who was fairly a pop­u­lar name, Nid­hhi says it was rather an added ad­van­tage. She asks, “He is def­i­nitely stronger than me in terms of pop­u­lar­ity but I looked at it in a pos­i­tive way. Now, if I would have done some other film, only 50 would have watched me. So, isn’t a hun­dred bet­ter?” Nid­hhi adds that Tiger never in­tends to over­shadow his lead­ing ladies. She says, “I know some ac­tors are very self­ish and they want their face on the cam­era and their hero­ine’s back and they do a lot of petty things to screw other ac­tor’s screen space. But, Tiger is not like that.”
