|Aamir Khan was so impressed with Jackie Shroff's son Tiger that he wanted to launch him. We don’t know why that idea was junked, but the star will attend the first look launch of Tiger Shroff's debut film, Heropanti, and will also introduce him to the media.
Has he too taken a cue from his good friend Salman Khan, who also likes to take young talents under his wing? Aamir Khan will be very much present at the first look launch of Heropanti, planned for next week.
The Heropanti makers were keen to rope in a big star for the event, and who else than Aamir Khan -- a good friend of Jackie Shroff. “The makers wanted to create a lot of buzz so they were looking for a big name. They then decided that Aamir Khan would be the perfect person to do the honours,” a source is quoted as saying by a tabloid.

Both Aamir and Jackie have worked together and are known to be thick friends. In fact, it was Aamir who first noticed that Tiger Shroff belongs to Bollywood and has the potential to be a star. Tiger being a fitness freak even used to guide Aamir while working together in gym, claim sources.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has confirmed the story. Heropanti is a fresh take on Jackie Shroff’s 80s’ hit Hero. The movie stars model Kriti Sanon opposite Tiger Shroff. Kriti is a known face in the modeling world and has been seen in adverts for Close Up and other brands. She has already made her acting debut with Mahesh Babu’s 1 Nenokkadine.
