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”.

Sushant Singh Rajput death: Rhea, family members among six named in CBI case

Published

on

Rhea Chakraborty has been named as an accused in the FIR filed by the CBI in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. A day after the Centre asked the agency to probe the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday registered a case against six persons, including Rhea Chakraborty and her family members, on the basis of the FIR filed by Bihar Police on his family’s complaint.

The CBI has named Rhea, her father Indrajit Chakraborty, mother Sandhya Chakraborty, brother Showik Chkaraborty, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda, Shruti Modi and unknown others. They have been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code including abetment of suicide, criminal conspiracy, wrongful restraint/confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, cheating and other offences.

A CBI spokesperson said that the agency has registered the case on the request of Bihar government and further notification from the Central government and taken over the investigation of the Bihar Police case registered at police station Rajiv Nagar in Patna.

The official said that the Bihar Police FIR was registered against six accused and others.

The CBI has handed the case over to its Special Investigation Team (SIT) branch, which earlier investigated the high profile cases like Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal, and liquor baron Vijay Mallya bank fraud case.

SIT member Superintendent of Police Nupur Prasad, as Supervising officer under the DIG Gagandeep Gambhir, was also probing the alleged role of Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav in an illegal mining case. She is currently also handling the Srijan scam and journalist Upendra Rai case.

CBI Joint Director Manoj Sridhar will be leading the probe.

The development comes a day after the Department of Personnel and Training issued a notification, paving the way for the central investigative agency to register a case.

Sushant was found dead in his flat in Mumbai’s Bandra on June 14. On Tuesday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recommended a CBI probe on the request of Sushant’s father K.K. Singh. Many political leaders have also called for a CBI probe into Sushant’s death.

On K.K. Singh’s complaint, the Bihar Police registered a case against Rhea on July 25. Sushant’s father had lodged an FIR against Rhea in Patna, accusing her of cheating and threatening his son. Sushant’s family has also accused her of keeping him away from them.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has also initiated a money laundering probe on the basis of the Patna Police’s FIR and has summoned Rhea for questioning on Friday.

Earlier, a verbal duel erupted between the governments of Maharashtra and Bihar over the investigation by the Bihar Police in the case.
