Jai Hemant Shroff, lovingly known as Tiger Shroff, is all out for a cause to save tigers and has written a letter to Anil Dave, Minister of State, Environment, Forest and Climate Change, urging him to join hands with PETA India to ensure that the government's focus is on protecting tigers in their natural habitat.
On the occasion of International Tiger Day (July 29, 2016), the Baaghi actor says that he's been associated with the cause of tigers since two years. "I have been associated with the cause since my Heropanti days. I'm trying to make a difference by spreading awareness."
When asked how he got the name 'Tiger', the actor goes back to
his school days and says he used to bite his classmates and hence
got the name. "I got the name Tiger because I used to bite and
scratch people as a child."
When asked if the name caused him embarassment, Tiger was quoted
as saying, "No, there was no other Tiger in school so everyone
thought my name was cool. I hope that I can take my career to the
heights that other successful Tigers like golfer Tigers Woods and
cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi did."
