Tiger Shroff Biography
Tiger was born on 2 March 1990 in Mumbai. His real name was Jai Hemant Shroff. Before making a Bollywood debut, he officially changed it to Tiger Shroff. Tiger completed his schooling from the American School of Bombay, where his classmate was Shraddha Kapoor. Athiya Shetty and his sister Krishna Shroff were his juniors. Shraddha Kapoor in a recent interview stated that they both had secret crushes on each other in their childhood days. The actor was admitted to the Amity University of Lucknow for his further studies but dropped out owing to a career in the Bollywood.
Tiger Shroff Family
Tiger is the son of the famous actor Jackie Shroff and producer Ayesha Dutt. He belongs to a family that is diverse in traditions and culture. He is a Gujarati and a Turk from his father’s side whilst a half-Bengali and Belgian from his mother’s. He has a sister Krishna who is 3 younger to him. His grandparents from both the side were sound professionals of their time.
It is said that the thoroughly maintained Tiger helped Aamir Khan to achieve the perfect figure required for the role in Dhoom 3. It was rumored that Aamir was so impressed with Tiger’s skills that he wanted to launch him for his production endeavors. Sadly, the rumor turned out to be false news. Consequently, Tiger also snubbed an offer from Subhash Ghai for the remake of Hero. Also, he was offered the lead role in the remake of Fauji. The actor reluctantly denied the offer. With so many offers hovering around Tiger, the debut in the Bollywood was inevitable. Sooner or later Tiger was going to hit the big screens, and it was just a matter of time until we saw Tiger dancing and jumping in his debut.
Tiger Shroff First Film
The actor was finally launched by Sajid Nadiadwala for Heropanti. He shared the screen opposite Kriti Sanon. The film was received moderately by the critics as well as the audience. But, Tiger’s dance moves and action sequels were a treat to the eye. Without using a body double for his stunts, the actor did a fine job in the fight sequels but fared averagely with his dialogue delivery.
Tiger established himself as an actor with his second release of his career. He shared the screen with his classmate, Shraddha Kapoor in the film, Baaghi. The film was well received by the audience and proved to be a commercial hit at the Box Office. His acting prowess and his ability to perform the difficult stunts with ease were praised by the film critics. He was commendable with his dancing and gave a far improved performance from his debut. The film earned 1 billion rupees worldwide.
He then went on to play a comic superhero in the movie, Flying Jatt. The film crashed at the Box office, and again Tiger was seen jumping, dancing, and fighting in the film. His inability to choose films out of his comfort zone has pondered his stature in the industry. But we are sure that he’d be enticing the industry with thrilling performances in the future. He will soon appear in a film titled Munna Michael and has signed another by the name of Adhoora.
Apart from his roles in the movies, Tiger has featured in a total of 4 music videos. His video Befikra with his girlfriend, Disha Patani was an instant hit on the YouTube. His dancing skills in these music videos were praised by many professional dancers in the industry.

The couple looks stunning together and has even shared the screen in a music video involving a steamy temperature raising lip lock. The duo is happy to accept the happily committed tag, and the relationship seems to grow stronger with time. Lucky Tiger, that he is seeing such a beauty goddess.
Tiger away from the wilderness of Controversies
Tiger has somehow managed to part ways with controversies. In fact, since his debut in the industry, Shroff has stayed away from the controversies, unlike his dad. He has just been a butt of all jokes and memes, but that’s normal considering the sarcastic mood of Social Media users these days.
Recently Tiger was somehow withdrawn to a controversy for making sexist comments against female. On being asked, what kind of girl he’d love to marry, the actor was recorded saying he’d marry a girl from the village who does all the household chores and play the perfect home-maker. The actor was then slammed by few for stereotyping women. Later, Tiger published a comment stating that he was misinterpreted and hadn’t said things like these. Those comments were altered by the media personals to drag the actor amidst controversies. Luckily for the actor, the fire in the forest subsided early.
We hope Tiger maintains distance with controversies like he has so far done, and wish him all the best considering the gruesome mood of the paparazzi.
The Captial Count
The actor has made a slow start in the Bollywood, but that doesn’t stop him from filling his bank accounts with loads of money. Workings with big production companies under huge banners have garnered him a hefty wealth. The actor charges around 5 crores per film and endorses several products in the country. Recently, the dancer replaced John Abraham for the Garnier Men’s Face Wash advertisement.
