Tiger has earlier spoken about his roots when he appeared on Arbaaz Khan’s celebrity talk show ‘Pinch’. He had said, “My dad’s (Jackie Shroff) dad is Gujarati, and my dad’s mom is Turkmenistani, a Mongolian-Chinese, a Muslim. My mom’s mom is French, and my mom’s dad is Bengali, so I’m a mix of a lot of things, I don’t know what that makes me.”
In an interview with Rajya Sabha TV, Jackie Shroff had mentioned that his mom and her friends used to apply garlic paste on their bodies so that the soldiers would leave them alone thinking them to be infected with a contagious disease as garlic paste causes boils on the skin.
