“Akshay sir and I bond over martial arts. I respect him for promoting this discipline in India. He trains so many people for free through his academy, and he organises tournaments too. He is also trying to convince people to introduce martial arts in schools. That is something even I would like to do when I reach his stage,” says Tiger.

The young actor also feels that his “giving” nature comes from his father, Jackie Shroff, who he says goes out of his way to help people in distress.
