For a father, to be known by his son’s name is the proudest feeling ever. Bollywood ka bindaas bhidu Jackie Shroff has been in the industry for almost three decades, but now he is addressed as Tiger’s father by the kids!
When quizzed Jackie if he is happy with the way things are shaping up for Tiger, he said, “He’s a young boy. He is being liked by little children, they love him a lot. They may not know everything but they know what is ‘Whistle Baja’, ‘Aa Raha Hoon Main’ and all. And now-a-days, I’m known as Tiger’s dad after being in the industry for 30 years. They say ‘look at that that uncle, let’s click a picture, he’s Tiger’s dad’ and then they come. Before that they’re like who is this man?”
As a father, Jackie is definitely proud of his son. “I’m absolutely proud of him. I don’t know how to react. After 30 years of my career, I’m still known as Tiger’s dad. For god’s sake, he has done just one film.
But some recognize me. They say Charan Grover uncle from HAPPY NEW YEAR. Many kids must have seen it because of Shah Rukh (Khan) and they saw me in the film too.”
Despite being just one film old, we can say that Tiger has become pretty popular.
