Mumbai, He is the son of Bollywood's once reigning star Jackie Shroff. His daredevilry is the talk of the town. But young and raring to go Tiger Shroff says that the fact that he's a "star kid" made him work twice as hard as any newcomer.
His debut film "Heropanti", for which he invested two years of labour and passion to achieve an enviable body frame and a natural fluidity in action scenes, hits the screens May 23.
Initially, Tiger was skeptical of stepping into the Hindi film industry, fearing he would be compared to his father. But good preparation and confidence have helped him through.
In conversation with IANS, the 24-year-old said: "Comparison with my father is one of the reasons why I was skeptical to get into Bollywood."
But obviously, he knew, the expectations from him would be high.
