Tiger is not my under shadow: Jackie Shroff
Actor Jackie Shroff, who is a proud father these days as his son Tiger is making his Bollywood debut with a Sajid Nadiadwala production, said the newcomer is not under his shadow.
Jackie, who has been in the industry for more than three decades and has worked in over 150 films, insists that Tiger is entitled to make his own decisions instead of relying on his father to pave the way for his career.
"Tiger is free to explore the world himself. He is a man whose persona is totally different from what I had during my initial days. There can't be any comparison between the two of us since he is absolutely different.
"I was someone who was trying to make it into the world of glamour. On the other hand Tiger has also been an athlete and a sports person. He is making his own choices instead of being under my shadow," Jackie told PTI.
The 52-year-old actor says he doesn't feel the need to suggest anything to Tiger as that's taken care by his manager. "Tiger has a manager who looks after his business and together they decide what he should be doing next. Moreover today's kids are mature enough; they give me suggestions. They are more focused and disciplined than the way we used to be. They know exactly what they want," he added. PTI
