New Delhi: Tiger Shroff found a true mentor in form of Aamir Khan at the trailer launch of his debut flick ‘Heropanti' where Mr. Perfectionist guided him for his first ever media interaction.
The media persons were all going ga-ga over Jackie Shroff's son for his action packed performance in the flick and so there were ample questions thrown over him.
But there was one over which he went speechless. A journalist asked him did he ever fell in love in real life. There came Aamir Khan to the rescue, who told him that this question is dangerous one and beware before answering it.
Tiger later admired Aamir's simplicity as he said "I like his simplicity, humility and his work ethic. I hope to imbibe that.”
Now that he has entered into Bollywood, there are big challenges waiting on his way but he revealed pursuing his career in films wasn't his first choice.
“I was not keen on becoming an actor. I grew up on sports. Acting was not my first choice, but somewhere at the back of my mind there was this thought of films. My family, friends were asking me when I would get into films and what kind of film I will do. I am glad 'Heropanti' came my way," Tiger said here.
Also present were Jackie Shroff's wife Ayesha, daughter Krishna, filmmaker Subhash Ghai, Rakeysh Roshan, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, Siddharth Roy Kapur among others who grace the event.
Father Jackie who was nervous over his son's big debut stood behind the crowd and loved watching him being clicked by media person. "I don't know what feelings I have now after seeing
him (Tiger) on screen. I am obviously happy to see him. But there is nervousness as he has given exams (done the film) and waiting for the result”, said Jackie.
Also starring debutant Kirti Shanon, ‘Heropanti' is directed by Sabbir Khan and is slated to release on May 16th this year.
