From the awkward beginning in Heropanti in 2014 when he was called the most unflattering names by savage trolls, to 2021 when he has moved into grand new apartment which he says is a gift to his parents and sister, Tiger Shroff has come a long way. In an interview with Subhash K Jha, Tiger talks on his new home, and his Independence Day song that took the nation, and it’s prime minister, by storm
You have shifted into your new home. what does it feel like to be in a new residence after so many years in another home?
Home always feels like home when my mother and father are with me. Where I am with them is home to me. My parents mean the world to me. Everything I do, I do to make them feel proud. I pray I never do anything to disappoint them.
Your dad says this home is your gift to your mom and he is just a passerby?
Oh, you know how he is. Dad is trying to be cool about it. He may act casual about it. But he’s as excited about our new home as my mother. We all are excited. This home is equally important for my father, my mother and my sister.
To be able to afford such a posh new home for someone so young is no joke. How do you see your journey so far?
I see it as just that, a journey. I feel it’s my parents’ blessings that has brought me where I am. I couldn’t have hoped for a better family.
Don’t you feel a bit lost in such a big house?
Sir, honestly the size of the house doesn’t matter to me. I am just so grateful to the Lord that I am able to buy a house for my parents .That was on my to-do list even before I became an actor.
The reaction to your Vande Mataram has gone all the way to the PM .How does it feel?
So grateful to (producer) Jaccky Bhagnani firstly to push me to sing this song. I was too nervous as it was a huge responsibility to sing a song for our country. So I definitely wanted to give my 100 percent and put every ounce of emotion into the words and lyrics.
I could feel the emotions flowing through the words?
I was singing as it was meant to be the voice of every Indian. I am most grateful to our Honourable Prime Minister for his approval of our honest effort.
