In many ways, Heropanti 2 was your typical Tiger Shroff material, geared to cater to his fans. It included high-octane action sequences, a few dance numbers that showcased his fluid skills, and over-the-top dialogues. The actor had great hopes for Ahmed Khan's film, which marked his comeback to the big screen after a two-year absence since Baaghi 3 (2020). The April 29 release, however, failed to make an impact at the box office.

Shroff confessed to Mid Day that the film's failure affected him greatly. He explained that it's heartbreaking because he's so attached to all of his films. If his film fails, it takes a toll on him.

After the lacklustre response to the Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tara Sutaria starrer film, the actor has lifted himself up.

He is currently working on Ganapath, which reunites him with his first co-star, Kriti Sanon, and will then move on to Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, which he will feature in alongside Akshay Kumar. Shroff believes that working harder is the key to bouncing back. He said that he believes in immersing himself in work because the show must go on.

The actor has had his share of success since his debut with Heropanti in 2014. With Khan's Baaghi 2, a spiritual sequel to Baaghi, with Disha Patani, Shroff marked a turning point in his career and established himself in the industry. The film, which was produced by Nadiadwala, starred him as a rogue army commander on a mission to locate his ex-girlfriend's lost daughter. Baaghi 2 outperformed expectations, to become one of the year's highest-grossing Bollywood films.

Shroff and Hrithik Roshan co-starred in Siddharth Anand's action thriller War in October 2019. As of February 2020, the film was the highest-grossing Bollywood film of the year and Shroff's highest-grossing release. The film became the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2019 and one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time, with a massive box office and blockbuster triumph.
