Being a star kid comes with its own baggage, and being the son of one of Bollywood’s most acclaimed action heroes just adds more pressure to live up to the same expectation. Where competition has been high, Tiger Shroff is one star-kid who has managed to stand out from the crowd. As he turns 30, BizAsiaLive.com looks at all the different boxes he’s ticked that makes him loved by all.
Even if he hadn’t won awards for his debut ‘Heropanti’ (2014), Shroff will still be remembered as a great dancer ever since his first film. The reaction the actor received from audiences and critics alike, was to the same effect Hrithik Roshan got back in 2000. Intricate formations and kick footwork is where Shroff shines, and where one would take months to perfect each step, this is one actor that makes it look all too easy.
The Action Hero
Stepping into the area his father Jackie (Shroff) was also very well known for, it seems Shroff has used his experience in dance to perfect his action sequences. With all his films focusing on action and movement, it seems he treats both dancing and fighting with the same regard. Just as his dancing skills did, Shroff’s action scenes came as a pleasant surprise from his audiences. Playing to his strengths, action films are definitely what he’s been preparing for, and one could even say he’s surpassed his father’s skills in this area.
Building a great body seems to be one thing that every young actor and actress aspires to do. With the pressures of looking good continuing to grow, have a six-pack bod is something Shroff has always been known for, and one he seems to love to flaunt. Following the likes of Roshan and Salman Khan, Shroff ripped body definitely helps get his audience to the big screens, as they know they are bound to get a glimpse of something fit, build and trimmed.
Another element of acting that the riding star has followed his father’s footsteps in, is his rapport with his female co-stars. Audiences favourites being Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor and Disha Patani to name a few, Shoff has shown he can be the perfect Bollywood hero, saving his damsel in distress, and being the perfect gentleman, proving he is the whole package.
As well as all the aspects that make him a Bollywood hero, many may be unaware of the amount of charity work Shroff carries out in his spare time. From getting involved in charity events such as Aamir Khan’s daughter’s football match to raise money for sheltering animals, dancing for cancer patients, and raising awareness in mental health and disabilities especially of young people. Understanding the importance of such issues is something that Shroff seems to hold very close to his heart which makes him all the more likable for all.
