He’s one of those actors who can still give the entire young breed a run for their money. But when it comes to his son Tiger, Jackie Shroff has that warmth in his voice and says that he is very happy that everyone is giving his son so much love and affection and he is doing all kinds of films.
In a conversation with HotFridayTalks.com, Jackie said that Tiger has had to make his own foothold in the industry despite him being a star son. “I never tried to tell him anything even when he was a child, I only gave him my love and affection. But yes he used to always be with me while driving or while going out and he would observe and listen to everything that I said like the way I greeted people and met people etc. He observed all that while growing up. He is a part of me so I never could tell him do this or do that. He did what his heart desired,” says Jackie.
But it was what Jackie said about Tiger’s preference of career that was a revelation. Jackie told us that Tiger had never planned to get into acting. It was not films but sports that Tiger loved. He said, “It was only when once his mother asked him if he would do a film, he said ok for his mother’s sake. He actually wanted to be a basketball player or a football player. He was interested in sports, he even wanted to join the NBA because he was very good at it. But destiny had something else planned for him, he joined films because his mother asked him to and Sajid bhai gave him Heropanti and everyone loved him. He’s doing good work and different kinds of films.”
In his soon to be released film Paltan, Jackie is working with some of the younger lot of actors from the industry. Speaking about the same he said that he has literally seen some of them grow up in front of him.” Siddhanth Kapoor and Luv Sinha were so tiny, they used to come for Tiger’s birthday as little kids and today I worked with them. It was such a good feeling, to be standing with them in the same frame.”
On being asked about how he still stands out and is full of energy even at this age, Jackie says that he has always moved along with time and destiny. “ I just enjoy life, I enjoy every breath I take. I live every moment that God has given me. I have always moved along with destiny, I believe once should just keep moving on in life, enjoy life and keep moving.”
Move along and how! Besides Platan, Jackie is a part of films like the John Abraham starrer espionage thriller titled Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW), Saaho, a Gujarati version of Ventilator and Salman Khan’s Bharat. Jackie says that he also does whatever film comes his way and he is never bothered about the number of scenes he might have in a film. He just goes along with it and does his best. “Sometimes I get a song sometimes I don’t, sometimes I have 7 scenes sometimes 14, but the point is when I stand up I get noticed anyways and people give me so much love when I go out.”
With an attitude like that, there is no stopping this hunk and there are no signs of him slowing down either!
