Tiger Shroff makes father Jackie proud

Mumbai, March 9 (IANS) A recent photo-shoot with Kriti Sanon saw Jackie and Ayesha Shroff's son Tiger take to the camera like a fish to water. But unlike his father, he was quite reserved 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 with Kriti. But the boy is a natural. He just blossomed when the camera went on. Tiger and Kriti make a sizzling couple," said 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."

Jackie is all praise 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 said.

Tiger feels this is "the most important time of my life."

"I've been training like crazy. Every morning there's gymnastics and dance rehearsals. In the night, I run and I practice martial arts. It's a very focused regime that doesn't leave me much time for a social life. That makes me a kind of not-so-cool guy."

Tiger admits training for the film leaves him no time to get a love life.

"The closest I'll get to a girlfriend is the one I'll have in my film," he said.

Nevertheless, Tiger says he is happy.

"I've been happy since Sajid sir (Nadiadwala) signed me in June. Other than being one of the biggest producers in town, he's one of the most decent people in the industry. He's giving me a dream launch."
