Biography

Early Life

<p><b>The mystery behind the name –<a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/celebrity/tiger-shroff/">Tiger</a>?</b></p><p>Actually when <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/celebrity/tiger-shroff/">Tiger Shroff</a> was born he was named Jai Hemant Shroff but as an infant he was very vicious and used to bite, scratch and growl at people. Hence his parents nicknamed him as Tiger. <br></p><p>When he made his entry into films with Heropanti, both the film’s director <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/celebrity/sabbir-khan/">Sabbir Khan</a> and film producer <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/celebrity/sajid-nadiadwala/">Sajid Nadiadwala</a> insisted his father, famous actor <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/celebrity/jackie-shroff/">Jackie Shroff </a>to retain the nick name and not the original Jai Hemant, as it looked orthodox and outdated. <br></p><p>Interestingly Tiger Shroff’s passport too declares the same name as he has now become a well-known star world around. <br></p><p><br></p><p><b>Tiger Shroff’s first career option was Football</b></p><p>Since Tiger’s parents kept him away from the glory of Bollywood, hence the actor was away from the limelight of films and stardom.

Career

<p><b>Tiger Shroff rejected many offers before signing Heropanti</b></p><p>Tiger Shroff, knew he was not good at academics and he did not aspire to be a doctor or a lawyer. He knew acting in films was his eventual goal. <br></p><p>He said, “On some holidays, dad would take me for shooting. I remember visiting on the sets of <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/movie/rangeela-1995/">Rangeela</a>, <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/movie/ram-lakhan-1989/">Ram Lakhan</a> etc. I would not understand much but would feel proud at the royal treatment that was meted out to my dad on sets. This would inspire me to become a star.” <br></p><p>He added, “After completing my class XII, everybody would ask me when I was being launched. There were many offers like a lead role in the remake of <a href="https://www.indianfilmhistory.com/celebrity/shahrukh-khan/">Shah Rukh Khan’</a>s previous television serial Fauji.
