Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2 had great buzz around it before its release and the results are out here for everyone to see. The actioner has become a smash hit in not just India but in the overseas markets as well and the young star is naturally touched and overwhelmed with all the love and appreciation. But one thing Tiger doesn’t want is comparisons with his father, yesteryear hunk and hero Jackie Shroff. The actor has said it earlier as well that he wants to climb the ladder to success as fast as he can so that he can be known for what he is and not as Jackie’s son.
So when filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who have gave Jackie his big Bollywood break in “Hero” and then cast him in cult hits like “Ram Lakhan”, “Khalnayak”, “Yaadein” and “Karma”, praised the son and compared him to his father, Tiger had to react the way he did. In his tweet, Ghai said, “A great tribute to his father Jackie Shroff is his own bright son Tiger Shroff as ‘Hero’ Vs ‘Hero’ since 1980s and now 2018. I feel so proud of both of them. God bless the family with love and dedication all over.”
In his reply, Tiger said: “We both are so lucky to have you uncle! But there can only be one hero and that is dad! No comparison!” So there you have it, call him whatever you like, but not ‘Hero’ for there’s only in the industry and that’s Jackie Shroff.

On the work front, Tiger is riding high on the stupendous success of Baaghi 2. The film has made around RS 135 crore (India biz) and Rs 39.38 crore in the international markets, proving the myth that action films only have a few takers wrong. The success of the film have already motivated the makers – producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Ahmed Khan to come out with Baaghi 3. Tiger has also started shooting for Student Of The Year 2 since yesterday and the leading ladies are Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria.
