"I feel that Tiger should look up to Shah Rukh. He’s the perfect example of someone who has handled success well. He worked his way up from being a television artiste to a superstar without losing his modesty," says Jackie, who is overwhelmed by the response the trailer of his son Tiger’s debut film has received.
