If reports are to be believed, Jackie Shroff’s son Jai Hemant, popularly know as Tiger, will make his Bollywood debut in 2011. But according to his dad, he is only 19 and would rather wait for two years before he gets into movies. “And the decision is Tiger’s, not mine. These days, children take all their decisions themselves,” he says.
What’s more, it will be wife Ayesha who will mentor and guide Tiger. “She is more filmi than I am,” he reasons, adding that daughter Krishna too, has been getting acting offers, but feels she is better suited to filmmaking. “Let us see what happens.”
Meanwhile, after judging a magic show on TV, India’s Magic Star, Shroff has been getting other small screen offers too, but won’t be locking any deals till early next year. “The magic show worked and now there are lot of things in the pipeline, including a cookery show. I’d like to be a part of it since I’m a good cook myself,” says Shroff, who hasn’t seen Akshay Kumar’s MasterChef India yet, but plans to catch an episode when he gets more time.
Meanwhile, Shroff will be seen as a ghost in his upcoming adventure film, Bhoot And Friends. “I’m a friendly ghost of a Rajput warrior who helps the children look for a hidden treasure,” he says. “The children are the real heroes, I’m just around.”
