Tiger Shroff (born Jai Hemant Shroff on 2 March 1990) is an Indian actor who works in Hindi films.[1] The son of actor Jackie Shroff and producer Ayesha Dutt, he made his film debut with a leading role in the 2014 action comedy Heropanti, which earned him a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut nomination.[2][3][4][5]

Shroff went on to star in the action drama Baaghi (2016), which earned over 1.3 billion (US$18 million), and went on to star in its highly successful sequel Baaghi 2 (2018), which earned over 2.6 billion (US$36 million) worldwide, despite generally negative reviews from critics.[6][7][8]

Early life

Shroff is born on 2 March 1990 to Indian film actor Jackie Shroff and his wife Ayesha Shroff (née Dutt). He changed his name to Tiger when he debuted in movies.[9][10][11][12] He is the elder of two siblings; his sister Krishna Shroff is three years younger.[13][14][15]

From his paternal side, he is of Gujarati and Uyghur ancestry[16][17] and from his maternal side, he is of Bengali and Belgian descent.[18][19][20][21] Shroff is a devout Hindu devotee of Lord Shiva attributing his physique to Lord Shiva, and holding a fast every Monday as well as every Mahashivaratri festival.[22][23][24]

He did his schooling at American School of Bombay.[citation needed]

Shroff helped Aamir Khan to build his physique for Dhoom 3.[25] He also holds a fifth degree black belt in Taekwondo.[26][1]

Since a young age, Shroff's major hobby is dancing, and he admires the dance forms breakdancing, popping, and locking. He notes Michael Jackson, Hrithik Roshan and Chris Brown as his idols and inspiration.[27]

In June 2012, Shroff was finally signed on by Sajid Nadiadwala to make his debut in Heropanti.[28][29] Heropanti released on 23 May 2014 and proved to be commercial success despite receiving negative reviews from critics.[30][31] For his debut performance, Shroff garnered mainly mixed to positive reviews, with critics primarily praising dancing skills and ability to perform onerous stunts.[32][33] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama appreciated his performance, saying "Tiger registers an impact in several sequences" and that he "scores brownie points in action and stunts". Adarsh also added that "for a first-timer, he exudes supreme confidence",[34] whereas Subhash K. Jha praised him for his versatility, saying "he emotes, he dances and yes, he can fight".[35] However, Sweta Kaushal of Hindustan Times disagreed, calling his "dialogues forced" and said "his expressions do nothing in a given situation". In spite of terming his performance "a little unconvincing", Kaushal called his action sequences "admirable" and said he's a "great dancer".[36] Furthermore, Anupama Chopra, though noting that he has star-like qualities and "very solid screen presence", called his dialogue delivery "off".[37]

Shroff next appeared in Sabbir Khan's action drama Baaghi (2016) along with Shraddha Kapoor under production of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, which turned out to be a box office success grossing over 1 billion worldwide.[38] Bollywood Hungama praised his action saying, "The action Tiger performed without use of double body is delight to see."[39] Shroff's final release of 2016 was Remo D'Souza's superhero film, A Flying Jatt, alongside Jacqueline Fernandez.[40] Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and directed by Remo D'Souza, the film grossed 420 Million in India.[41] In 2017, Shroff starred in Munna Michael, along with Nidhhi Agerwal.[42] Produced by Eros International and directed by Sabbir Khan, the film met with negative reviews and collected 310 Million in domestic areas to emerge as his second consecutive commercial failure.[43]

In 2018, he starred in the action sequel Baaghi 2, opposite Disha Patani, which emerged as a major commercial success.[44][45] He will next star in Student of the Year 2.[46]

Other work

In 2017, Shroff was brought in as Brand Ambassador and co-owner of Bengaluru Tigers, which is owned by 8K Miles Media Group. The Bengaluru Tigers won 3rd place in his inaugural season of Super Fight League, the first mixed martial arts (MMA) League in India.[47]
