B-Town star Tiger Shroff appears to be at the top of his game presently with his last film ‘War’ racking up ample success. However, it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns for the actor.
The 29-year-old actor in an interview, spoke at length about growing up under the shadow of his star father Jackie Shroff and how his career has shaped in the industry.
Many of you might not be aware of the fact that Katrina Kaif‘s debut movie ‘Boom’ was produced by Tiger Shroff‘s mom Ayesha Shroff.
Talking about being 11 years old and how the financial condition of his family went for a toss, the ‘Baaghi’ star revealed his mom Ayesha Shroff’s first production ‘Boom’ really took toll on his family.
‘Boom’ released in 2003 but it was leaked before the release date and tanked at the box office. Tiger was 11-year-old but he knew everything that his family went through.
He revealed, “I remember how our furniture was sold off, one by one. Things I’d grown up seeing around us started disappearing. Then my bed went. I started to sleep on the floor. It was the worst feeling of my life.”
This is also why Tiger Shroff likes to do what he is best at instead of experimenting a lot. His past films including ‘A Flying Jatt’ and ‘Student of the Year 2’ were different from his regular action-packed films.
Speaking about his audience not accepting him in different roles, he added,
“You think of Shah Rukh sir, and think ‘Romance King’. You look at Salman Khan, and think ‘Bhaijaan’. Each one of these guys has a label. That’s important in an industry that has so much competition. Every time I do something offbeat, the audience has not been as kind, to me. ‘A Flying Jatt’ or ‘Student of the Year 2’. In A Flying Jatt, I was a bumbling superhero, afraid of heights, fights and of using powers. In SOTY 2, I was a college guy getting bullied. It didn’t go down well with my audience. I don’t think they could digest me coming from Baaghi 2 to being beaten up by college students.”
Though Tiger made his debut with ‘Heropanti‘ in 2014, he rose to fame with the ‘Baaghi’ franchise.
On the work front, Tiger will be next seen sharing screen space with Shraddha Kapoor in ‘Baaghi 3’ which will hit the silver screens on March 6.
