Actor Jackie Shroff says he is a proud father as both his kids are performing better in life and are too caring for their parents. In his latest interview with a daily, the popular actor talked about Tiger Shroff being the best son any parent could have asked for, and also about his relationship with actress Disha Patani. He said that he is glad to see Tiger found a girl at the age of 25, who is a lot similar to how his son is.
Jackie told Mumbai Mirror, “He found his first friend who is a girl at 25, till then he never looked around. They share the same passions, dance and workout together. She comes from a family of army officers, so she understands the value of discipline. Who knows they may get married in future or remain friends for life, for now they are just friends.”
Expressing how much Tiger values his parents, Jackie said, “God is kind, what else can you expect from your child! Tiger is setting an example for other kids to follow. He sleeps by 10.30 pm and is up by 6 am… He respects people and focuses on his craft… He steers clear of malice and is a man on a mission. Even for a porcupine, his child is soft, so I won’t say more.”
The Teri Meherbaniyan star also commented on Tiger buying a sprawling eight-bedroom apartment for the family despite their refusal. Jackie called it an ’emotional moment’ and revealed Tiger insisted on buying a house for them. He said, “Tiger thought we should have a house and has been slogging to make the dream come true.”
The proud father called daughter Krishna Shroff ‘the Student of The Year in sports’ and said, “Krishna learnt filmmaking for two years and made the documentary Black Sheep. Then, she taught kindergarten kids for a year, going on to assist on Tiger’s Munna Michael and teach basketball at a sports academy.”
