Tiger Shroff opened up about his childhood and the bond he shares with his father Jackie Shroff

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Tiger said. “I never asked my parents for anything, I wasn’t a materialistic child, but whenever I didn’t want to go to school, I’d wake up early, cuddle up against dad and when mom tried to pull me out of bed, I’d hold him tighter. He would stand up for me, cajole mom to let me stay at home, saying, “Chhod na, rehne de bachche ko, nahin jaana hai usko (Let it be, let the child be, he does not want to go). Thanks to him, I got away with a lot of things. Whenever I got into trouble, I’d run to him. He’d always save me. He was my hero, he still is.”
 
Tiger stated that he may consider producing a film if Baaghi 3 works out. He also said that the franchise will continue. “Again, that would depend on how Part 3 fares. I’d like to play Ronnie till my legs don’t give up on me. All the action takes its toll, but as long as I have my youth and physicality, I’d like to be a Baaghi.”
 
Tiger also spoke about his gratitude for his parents. He expressed his dreams to buy them a house. “I guess buying a house for my parents. They’ve given me the best childhood and this is my small way of giving something back. My mother (Ayesha Shroff) always wanted a house in her name, so I bought this for her... Dad (Jackie) too. My dreams are her dreams, and I am focused on my work, being successful in my career and sustaining it. She is my motivation, my inspiration. I push myself so hard to make her happy, proud and secure. My dad likes to farm, he likes land and nature. I’d like to buy him something along those lines someday. He also enjoys cars. At the peak of his superstardom, he would collect them. Of course, he would also tell us, ‘Never do this, I made a big mistake.’ He works so hard, I want to get him things he loves.”
 
Baaghi 3 features Shraddha Kapoor and Ankita Lokhande. The film is set to hit theatres in March 2020. Tiger will next feature in Rambo, which is a remake of the Rambo film series.
