Tiger Shroff's 'leap' towards filmdom...literally!

Mumbai, July 31 (IANS) Much before Bollywood newcomer Tiger Shroff decided to face the arclights, he had been working on his athletic body, flexibility and motion training.

He has been learning martial arts since the age of four and has been training in gymnastics for the last three years under the watchful eyes of his coach, Ziley Mawai, a national level gymnast from Haryana.

Tiger spends long hours practising gymnastics - back layout, front pike, 360 degree-backward twist, wall flips and leaps - all with the ease and poise of a professional.

The actor, son of Jackie Shroff, is set to debut with "Heropanti". Guess he's living up to the title already!
