“I Am blessed To Have A Child Like him,” Says Proud Papa Jackie As Tiger Shroff Turns 33

Tiger Shroff who turns 33  today, never wanted his  father to launch him.

“When my dad  began his career he had no one to launch him.He  got Dev Anand Saab’s Swami Dada and then Subhash Ghaiji’s Hero  on his own. And that’s they way I wanted  it for myself,” says  Tiger.

Says Jackie emotionally, “Tiger  is far more focused and hardworking than I had ever been at his age. His action  and dancing are mindblowing.  My wife Ayesha and  I  are very proud  of Tiger. All credit for his  upbringing must go to his mother  and   grandmother.  They  brought him  with  the right values, while I  was working  round-the-clock to give  my family a comfortable  life.The kid  has  got a good head on his  shoulder.Whatever he has  achieved is  on his own. Like his father he is a  self-made man.”

Tiger in  an earlier  interaction with  me had confessed,  “I don’t like celebrating them with parties  , cakes , etc. That’s not my idea of a celebration.For me  every day is  a celebration. And when I see  my parents  smile,when the directors approves of a complicated  action shot I do…that’s reason to celebrate. Where is  the achievement in adding one more year  to my life? I had  nothing to with that!”

According to Tiger he has  only one trait in common with his father Jackie Shroff.  “We both hate parties and  get-togethers and avoid them as  much as possible. That’s about all I’ve in common with Dad.  In every other  detail he is  too cool  for me to even think of being like  him. I’m just happy being  myself.”

Tiger says  he  would never  do  a remake  of his father’s films.  “My favourites are Hero and  Shiva Ka Insaaf. As a kid I watched them over and over  again. I hero-worshipped  my dad. Still do.”
