Tiger Shroff Replies To Ram Gopal Varma's Tweet About Learning Machoism From His Father Jackie Shroff
On the second season of Arbaaz Khan’s show Pinch, Gen-z action star Tiger Shroff admitted that even before venturing into films he was trolled for his looks and there was a distasteful comparison with his father Jackie Shroff. Even director Ram Gopal Varma tweeted Tiger to learn machoism from his father, to which Tiger said that, "No one can match up to Bhidhu, except Bhaijaan (Salman Khan)."

Right from the beginning, Tiger wanted to stand out from his father's shadow and wanted to create a different impression from Sr Shroff. "I always knew that I am different from dad, and I wanted to prove myself different from him." Tiger even said that people perceived him to be just like his father, but they were shocked after watching his debut film's promos.

The actor feels that social media is a boon for actors to get connected with their fans, however, he even shared that one needs to be sensible before commenting as few are very sensitive towards trolling. However, Tiger revealed that he took all the heat in a positive way and that's what he suggests to youngsters, "If you're being trolled or bullied, it means that you have made an impact on the opposite person, and it doesn't have to be a negative thing."

While reacting to trolls with a smile, Tiger revealed that in his childhood, he was actually more inclined towards football, "While growing up I wanted to be a footballer, I have a passion for football. But unfortunately, in our school, apart from cricket, not any sport had that much hype." Tiger further asserted that he wanted to represent the country in the sport, but he didn't get the chance to do it; and at the same time, he was getting many acting offers. Thus, he decided to adapt the sportsman principle into his acting profession. The actor believes that even his trolls give out some productive suggestions that help him to improve. He quoted about the power of social media by saying, "With great power comes great responsibility."
