Not too many people know this . But Danny Denzongpa and Jackie Shroff are very close friends.And now their sons Rinzing and Tiger are also best friends. This is a rare occurrence in the industry where star-kids do not carry on the tradition of their parental relationships. Jeetendra , Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan have been best friends for years. But their children Tusshar-Ekta , Ranbir and Hrithik hardly know one another.
It’s different with Danny and Jackie’s respective sons. Rinzing and Tiger are not only buddies they’ve been preparing for stardom together. Tiger’s career has taken off. But that doesn’t stop Rinzing and his family from cheering for Tiger.
Baaghi which has just been released has Danny’s full approval. “Tiger is such hard working dedicated student of the martial arts. Such self-discipline. I believe audiences are clapping and cheering at his action scenes. I don’t think there has been a action-dance star like Tiger since Hrithik Roshan.”
Danny says his son is trying to walk the same self-disciplined path as Tiger. “Rinzing is getting offers. But they are not up to the mark. A debut film can make or break a career. We’ve to make sure the first film is right.”
Danny is sure he doesn’t want his soon to follow in his father’s footsteps. “He has to be an original. Just like Tiger.”
