Actor Tiger Shroff's fan following seems to be doubling with each of his movies. Two of his female fans reportedly ran away from home to meet the star.

Two teenage cousins at Khamni village in Mathura district stole some cash from their parents and secretly left their home at midnight on Tuesday to board a train for Mumbai hoping to meet Tiger, according to Press Trust of India.

Superintendent of Police Mukul Dwivedi confirmed the news to the agency and said the girls ran away after watching one of Tiger's movies on Monday. Son of Jackie Shroff, the actor's latest release "Baaghi" had hit the screens on April 29.

However, the teenagers could not flee as a tempo driver informed the villagers about the girls after seeing them in the early hours. The villagers then informed the police and the girls were found near Shivasha Estate, the report added. The girls had stolen Rs 1,000 each from their parents, according to the report.

"Baaghi," also featuring Shraddha Kapoor, is an action romantic flick. Directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film has been having an excellent run at the box office. Some of the scenes in "Baaghi" were apparently inspired by the Indonesian movie "The Raid: Redemption" and the Telugu film "Varsham."

This is Tiger's second film, after his debut movie "Heropanti," opposite Kriti Sanon. Tiger is best known for his dancing abilities and action skills.
