Actor Tiger Shroff: There’s added pressure being a star’s son

Bollywood’s new-age star Tiger Shroff says that while life is easier for people from the film industry, it also takes “double the effort” to emerge from the filmy family shadow.

“Being my father’s son, there’s an added pressure of being a star’s son. People think it’s very easy for us. I won’t lie, in a way to get a little attention it helps. It’s easier for people who are from the film industry but it’s double the effort to make it on our own. I managed to get out of my father’s shadow,” added Tiger, son of actor Jackie Shroff.

The young actor also opened up about his parent’s reaction to social media comments on his looks in the initial days of his career.

He said: “My father has been in this industry for 30 odd years. He has seen the highs and lows of the industry and he protected me from that from a very young age. Now, that I am out there in the open, I have become an easy target.”

On being constantly trolled for his roles in movies, Tiger said: “I enjoy some of the memes and trolls people share. It’s interesting and it’s good to be talked about.”

Asked if he loses his cool ever, he said: “I do get angry but at myself when I’m not able to get a shot right or not able to get a step. I am harsh at myself sometimes in order to improve.”

“In an industry where there is so much competition, just to find one’s identity is so important. I want people to think something synonymous with my name,” said Tiger on him being typecast with generic movies of action cum dance sequences.

Speaking about how he handles criticism, Tiger said: “I like to give it back to them with my work and therefore, I take what they say to heart and take it sportingly.”

He is fascinated with the whole superhero universe.

“I would do anything to do a Spiderman film. Ever since I was a kid, I was enticed by the whole superhero genre. I have tried to imbibe their attributes and qualities,” he said.

Asked who he thinks would best suit superhero roles, Tiger said: “I think Hrithik Roshan would be perfect to play Captain America because this superhero is the perfect superhero and Hrithik is a perfect hero as well. I feel Ranveer Singh would pull off Thor because Thor is so electric, and he is the god of thunder as well.”

On the personal front, Tiger said he is not a party person.

“I’m very awkward at social gatherings. I usually tend to stay away, I’m not much of a party guy nor am I a late kind of person. I go to bed at 10 while these clubs open around 10:30,” he said on Zee Cafe show, “Starry Nights Gen Y”.

 For the second consecutive day, the Income Tax Department continued its ‘survey’ operations at the home of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, official sources said here on Thursday.

A team of IT sleuths swooped on the 48-year-old Sood’s Juhu home to carry out search operations to detect certain alleged financial irregularities.

The IT department is examining bank statements, books of accounts, documents and details of financial or other business transactions during the ‘survey’, for suspected tax evasion, though no details are being shared officially.

In Wednesday’s operations, the IT had searched around half-a-dozen premises linked to the actor, including offices and other properties in Mumbai and certain locations in Lucknow.

Sood shot into limelight last year (2020) for arranging free flights or luxury buses for stranded migrants during the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic and sent them to different parts of India, besides organising liquid medical oxygen supplies to various hospitals during the second Covid wave this year (2021).

On Ayushmann Khurrana’s 37th birthday on Tuesday, his filmmaker-wife Tahira Kashyap revealed how the actor won her heart, when they both were just 19 years old.

Tahira on Tuesday shared a throwback picture on Instagram and penned a heart-warming note talking about how the actor wooed her.

“We were 19! I found you quite cool, with your frames, bike, matching sweaters and mufflers, but what got my heart was when you held the guitar and sang a song for me,” Tahira wrote.

She added: “You have always been passionate about art and what inspires me is after all these years your innocence and excitement towards work and life remains the same. You have been my biggest confidante and cheerleader.

“I might not be a big romantic as the goofiness (like you would say) gets the better of me, but I want to tell you that life is amazing with you and I continue learning a lot from you! Happy birthday umm P.S. – we were such lookers no.”

Ayushmann and Tahira were childhood sweethearts. The two got married in 2008. The couple welcomed their son Virajveer in 2012 and daughter Varushka in 2014.

Ayushmann’s upcoming roster includes ‘Anek’, ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Doctor G’.
