My father and I bond over food, not films: Tiger Shroff

Even though they come from film background, Tiger Shroff says he and his father Jackie Shroff hardly discuss movies when they are at home.

The "Heropanti" star, who is yet to watch his father's latest release "Brothers", said Shroff does not give him any acting advice.

"We hardly discuss films when we are at home. Our discussions are generally on either family or food. He keeps a tab on my work but he doesn't give me any tips," Tiger told PTI.

The 25-year-old actor, who was in the capital for the launch of fitness tracker maker Fitbit, said he has been conscious about fitness since childhood.

"I have been a fitness freak since my young days. It has been a way of life for me. I have always been a part of sports especially football and gymnastics. I am an ardent lover of dance. I never thought it to be fitness but always took it as fun," he said.

Tiger is all excited to share screen space with his schoolmate Shraddha Kapoor in his second outing "Baaghi". The duo has already shot a high-octane dance sequence for the Sabbir Khan-dirceted film.

"Shraddha was in form after 'ABCD 2' and I worked very hard for the song. And it will be a treat to the audience. It's basically a party number."

The actor, whose made his Bollywood debut last year with "Heropanti", said he chose to be a part of 'Baaghi' because of the script which Sajid Nadiadwala took a while to develop.

"It's an innocent and real love story. It gives me enough scope to show my acting and dancing abilities. The storyline of the film is written by Sajid sir. It's very different from previous film of the same name," said Tiger, who is playing a rebel, who would fight for his love.
