Tiger Shroff had revealed that when he was just 11 years old, his family went bankrupt. Back then, Jackie Shroff and his wife Ayesha Shroff had to sell their four-bedroom Bandra apartment and had to move into a smaller house. Tiger had also revealed that even their house furniture was sold and that he had to sleep on the floor. “I remember how our furniture and stuff was sold off, one by one. My mother’s artwork, lamps… Things I’d grown up seeing around us started disappearing. Then my bed went. I started to sleep on the floor. It was the worst feeling of my life. I wanted to work at that age but I knew I could do nothing to help,” the actor had said in an interview with GQ.
