In June 2012, Shroff was signed by producer Sajid Nadiadwala to make his film debut in Sabbir Khan's action romantic comedy Heropanti, produced under Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. In preparation for the role, he underwent flexibility training under Ziley Mawai. Released in 2014, Heropanti garnered unfavourable reactions from critics, but ultimately emerged as a minor commercial success with earnings of ₹726 million (US$10 million) worldwide. His performance in the film received mixed to positive reviews, with critics praising dancing skills and ability to perform onerous stunts, but criticised his acting and dialogue delivery. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama appreciated his performance, saying "Tiger registers an impact in several sequences" and that he "scores brownie points in action and stunts". Adarsh also added that "for a first-timer, he exudes supreme confidence". Subhash K. Jha praised him for his versatility, saying that "he emotes, he dances and yes, he can fight". However, Sweta Kaushal of Hindustan Times disagreed, calling his "dialogues forced" and said "his expressions do nothing in a given situation". In spite of terming his performance "a little unconvincing", Kaushal called his action sequences "admirable" and said he's a "great dancer". Furthermore, Anupama Chopra, though noting that he has star-like qualities and "very solid screen presence", called his dialogue delivery "off". Shroff's portrayal fetched him the Screen Award for Best Male Debut and the IIFA Award for Star Debut of the Year – Male in addition to a Best Male Debut nomination at the 60th Filmfare Awards. In 2016, Shroff reteamed with Nadiadwala and Sabbir Khan in the action thriller Baaghi, about a pair of rebellious lovers set against the backdrop of a martial arts school. The film, co-starring Shraddha Kapoor and Sudheer Babu, proved to be a critical and commercial success with worldwide grossings of ₹1.26 billion (US$18 million). Bollywood Hungama praised his action sequences, saying: "The action Tiger performed without use of double body is delight to see." Later that year, Shroff played a martial arts ordinary teacher who gains superpowers, in Remo D'Souza's superhero film A Flying Jatt, alongside Jacqueline Fernandez. Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, the film received positive reviews but underperformed at the box office grossing ₹520 million (US$7.3 million) against a budget of ₹450 million (US$6.3 million). The following year, Shroff appeared opposite Nidhhi Agerwal in Sabbir Khan's dance film Munna Michael (2017). The film and his performance received negative attention and the film was a commercial disappointment grossing ₹310 million (US$4.3 million) in India.In 2018, Shroff starred in the action thriller Baaghi 2, a sequel to Baaghi, though it narrated a different story and had two other new changes—Ahmed Khan as the director (replacing Sabbir Khan) and Disha Patani as the female lead (replacing Shraddha Kapoor). Produced once again by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, the film featured Shroff as an army officer. His performance and action sequences garnered him praise, and the film emerged as one of the top-grossing Bollywood films of the year with a lifetime gross of ₹2.53 billion (US$35 million) at the box office.
