Jackie Shroff, who has successfully created his niche in Bollywood, had his share of struggles before he tasted stardom and that’s why his son Tiger feels it would be a herculean task to pull off his father on the silver screen.
Tiger, who will next be seen in Baaghi-A Rebel For Love opposite Shraddha Kapoor, feels it’s a challenge to act like his father.
When asked whether he would like to do a biopic on his father, Tiger initially hesitated but later said that he did not know if he was the apt person to pay tribute to the senior Shroff.
“I have so much respect for my father and the work he has done so far. I would love to pay tribute to him but I don’t know if I am the right person to do that. Just because I am his son, it does not mean I can pull off something like that. Being Jackie Shroff is not easy,” the 26-year-old actor told ANI.
“It is going to be very challenging. I can’t even speak like him. So, I would really have to think about it but thank you for bringing that into consideration,” he added.
To stay true to the ‘Baaghi’ plot, Tiger has also learnt a form of martial art called kalaripayattu for which he took training and worked out for six to seven hours each day.
Shraddha Kapoor will also be seen doing some action-packed sequences in the film that will hit the theatres on April 29.
