'I've been training like crazy'

'I've been training like crazy'

Tiger Shroff, son of Jackie Shroff, who recently posed for a photoshoot with Kriti Sanon — the heroine in his upcoming movie — is unlike his father in one way: he is quite reserved about shooting with girls. “Unlike his dad — who, in his time, was known to be a born flirt — Tiger is very shy with girls. He is very reserved with the opposite sex.

So, there was an apprehension among Tiger’s team and family members that he would need time to open up to Kriti. But the boy is a natural. He just blossomed when the camera went on. Tiger and Kriti make a sizzling couple,” says a source. Jackie, who is shooting a Bengali film Swabhumi in Jaisalmer, could barely contain his pride.

“By god’s grace, Tiger has turned out to be a good boy, far more hard-working and focussed than I used to be when I started. And fully trained! Tiger understands his body and the camera — when I started I was a dud,” he says. Jackie is all praises for Tiger’s producer Sajid Nadiadwala. “I don’t think my boy could’ve started with a better producer. Sajid is experienced and generous. He will make sure Tiger is well-packaged and presented. My debut in ‘Hero’ just happened. But a lot of thought is going into Tiger’s Heropanti,” he adds.

Tiger feels this is the most important time of his life. “I’ve been training like crazy. Every morning there are gymnastics and dance rehearsals. At night, I run and I practise martial arts. It’s a very focussed regime that doesn’t leave me much time for a social life. That makes me a kind of not-so-cool guy,” he shares.
