Being a star kid comes with pressure and expectations, but not for actor Tiger Shroff. The 26-year-old says he never felt the pressure to match up to his father, actor Jackie Shroff, and has consciously maintained a different image. “He (Jackie) is his own man. Our acting styles are very different. In fact, the first time I danced on a reality show, Farah Khan (filmmaker-choreographer) told me, ‘you can’t be Jackie’s son, you might be Hrithik’s (Roshan) brother or Govinda’s son.’ I didn’t give the audience a chance to compare me to my father,” he says. But considering his father’s vast body of work, does he consult him before signing a film? “No,” says Tiger.
The actor started his career with Heropanti (2014) and starred in Baaghi, which released in April. He is awaiting the release of A Flying Jatt, directed by Remo D’souza. “I’m very happy as this has been a dream role for me. I am playing a super hero. I have not done this in the past and I am looking forward to the audience reaction. As of now, it’s all about making this film my biggest hit,” he says.
The actor was in the Capital over the weekend to promote the film, and said he loves Delhi. “This is my third time in Delhi, and this is my favourite place to promote my films. The majority of love which I get is from Delhi. It feels good to be here,” says Tiger, who will next work in Sabbir Khan’s Munna Michael. The actor’s younger sister, Krishna Shroff, will also be a part of the film. “She is entering the industry. She wants to be behind the camera and is going to assist in my next film,” says Tiger.
