Tiger Shroff: There’s added pressure being a star’s son
Bollywoods new-age star Tiger Shroff says that while life is easier for people from the film industry, it also takes “double the effort” to emerge from the filmy family shadow.
“Being my father’s son, there’s an added pressure of being a star’s son. People think it’s very easy for us. I won’t lie, in a way to get a little attention it helps. It’s easier for people who are from the film industry but it’s double the effort to make it on our own. I managed to get out of my father’s shadow,” added Tiger, son of actor Jackie Shroff.
The young actor also opened up about his parent’s reaction to social media comments on his looks in the initial days of his career.
He said: “My father has been in this industry for 30 odd years. He has seen the highs and lows of the industry and he protected me from that from a very young age. Now, that I am out there in the open, I have become an easy target.”
On being constantly trolled for his roles in movies, Tiger said: “I enjoy some of the memes and trolls people share. It’s interesting and it’s good to be talked about.”
Asked if he loses his cool ever, he said: “I do get angry but at myself when I’m not able to get a shot right or not able to get a step. I am harsh at myself sometimes in order to improve.”
