Jackie Shroff is one of the evergreen stars of Bollywood who
mesmerised people in the 80s and 90s and still has a screen
presence which people admire and respect. His son, Tiger Shroff,
when asked, if he ever dreams of starring in a film with his
father, said, "No way!"
"My father has an overpowering screen presence. He'll chew me up
for breakfast, lunch and dinner without even trying. He dominates
every frame that he is in. Who will look at me when he is in the
same frame?" said Tiger.
Tiger further commented, "Every son's first hero is his father.
My dad was my first super-hero. I hope I'm not compared with my
father. I'll never allow myself to be put in a place where we can
However, Tiger will be paying tribute to his father with a song
in his upcoming film Munna Michael and was quoted as saying, "My
director (Sabbir Khan) and the character I play in Munna Michael
helped me change my mind. And it is thanks to my choreographer
Ganesh Acharya, who got me to explore a very different side of my
personality that will remind audiences of my father."
