Tiger Shroff Wants His Father Jackie Shroff to Be Known By His Son’s Name

Tiger Shroff said he wants his dad Jackie Shroff to be known as ‘Tiger Shroff ka daddy’. He added that the day this happens he will feel like he has accomplished his goal in Bollywood

Action hero Tiger Shroff’s claim to fame could have been his superstar father Jackie Shroff but he has proved naysayers wrong since his start in Bollywood. The actor revealed that more than anything, forming his own identity was what he found the most challenging in showbiz. However, he feels he has become known for his work overtime and has his own standing in the Indian film industry. "I was always aware of my father, his presence and his impact on the industry. So, for me, the challenge was to separate myself from that and it is fair to say that I have been successful,” he said.

Tiger continued, “I have been successful at proving myself and my identity in my own manner without using my father's name.” he actor, who was last seen on-screen in ‘Student Of The Year 2’, agrees that as a star kid, it was easy for him to get noticed. "I don't think the audience accepted me just because I am 'Jackie Shroff ka beta (son)'.”

He added, “I accepted this before and I keep saying this that no matter how proud I am to be ‘Jackie Shroff ka beta', my goal is to make him be known him as ‘Tiger Shroff ka daddy'. That is my goal.” The 29-year-old actor confessed it has been "huge task" for him because Jackie has a huge presence. "Once I do that (make my father known by my name), I think I will feel better about myself," Tiger said. On the acting front, Tiger will next be seen alongside Hrithik Roshan in Super 30. Singing praises for the Krrish star, Tiger earlier said, “He is the best action star to have come out of India. I absolutely love his work and he is my role model – both, when I was a child and even today.”
