He is tall, fair, and handsome. Jackie Shroff’s elder son Jai, better known as Tiger Shroff, has all the qualities to make him a Bollywood star one day. But the man set to launch him wants Tiger to wait.
Is Aamir Khan planning a big launch for Tiger Shroff? Well, that’s the buzz in tinsel town. Though director Subhash Ghai was eager to launch Tiger in the remake of his father Jackie Shroff’s superhit film Hero, the young boy made his intentions clear. Tiger doesn’t want to be cast in a remake. “The last thing I want is to be compared with my father first thing in my career,” Tiger is quoted as saying.
And now when Aamir Khan has apparently taken him under his wings, what could be better than this. A call from Aamir Khan’s production house asking Tiger Shroff to come and meet Aamir changed it all. Father Jackie says, “That Aamir has so much faith in my boy is in itself a great endorsement for him.”
But this year Tiger Shroff will be learning a rare form of martial arts. Sources claim that Aamir apparently feels that Tiger needs to move beyond the usual training that all newcomers go through. So besides learning acting and dancing, Tiger will have to learn fighting skills. And that makes us wonder, what Aamir is up to.
Aamir also feels that if Tiger chooses to be launched by another producer, he is ready to help with the marketing.
Oh, boy! all eyes are on you now. 2013 is going to be the year of Tiger!
