Jackie Shroff on Working With Tiger Shroff: ‘I Can’t Explain the Feeling in Words’

Jackie Shroff has never worked with son Tiger Shroff but that is about to change

When Tiger Shroff was ready to make his debut, producer Sajid Nadiadwala had offered  him a remake of Subhash  Ghai’s Hero, the  film that had launched Jackie’s career into stardom. Tiger humbly declined the tempting offer. He had told me, “How can I do my father’s film, and that too  his most iconic film? Dad’s fans will kill me with the  unflattering comparisons.” Until last year, Tiger had  even refused to share screen space with his father arguing he needed to become far more confident about his abilities before agreeing to work with him.

Now Tiger has finally faced the camera with his father. In what can be considered a historic move Jackie Shroff and his son Tiger will share screen space as father and son in Baaghi 3. Speaking on the experience of working with his  son, Jackie says, “I can’t explain the feeling in words. When I saw how sincerely my son performed I felt complete as a human being and as a parent. This is the first time I watched my son at work. Believe me, I was never even half as focused and dedicated as he is.”

Jackie Shroff and Tiger Shroff

Tiger Shroff is a big fan of his father Jackie Shroff. He has watched all his Dad’s film, some of them repeatedly. “My favourite was Shiva Ka Insaaf where my Dad played a super-hero in  3D.As a child I used to watch that film on  a video cassette over and over again until I knew every word of dialogue.”

Now Tiger has  another favourite.  “I love his role  in Bharat. It’s so much like  his real life, passionate and all heart, would do anything for family.” Tiger  loved the  film, Salman and his father in Bharat.
