Amitabh Bachchan recalled that he has seen Tiger Shroff since childhood when he used to be an active kid who jumped a lot. Amitabh was speaking on his popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, speaking with a contestant about Tiger, his career, and his childhood.
After a question about Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger, Amitabh said, “Tiger Shroff. Jackie Shroff ke bete ka naam Tiger Shroff, sabko maalum hai. Bahut tandarust hai. Unki paidaish humare samne hui thi, chotu se the itne, tabse kuddi maar rahe hue, ab bade bade hogaye hain, filmon mein kuddi maar rahe hain. Bahut sundar lagte hain woh (Everyone knows Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger Shroff is a very healthy man. I saw him grow up, he was so small then. He has been jumping since childhood. Now that he is a grown up, he jumps in films. He looks very beautiful).”
Amitabh then asked contestant Aayash about Tiger’s films and the ten-year-old kid said that he has watched Baaghi 3, at least seven or eight times. He also said that he watched the films secretly if doesn’t get the permission.
Amitabh is currently seen on KBC and had a theatrical release recently when Uunchai came out. Directed by Sooraj Barjatya, the film marked the filmmaker’s first collaboration with Amitabh. It also featured Sarika, Danny Denzongpa, Anupam Kher, Neena Gupta, Parineeti Chopra and Boman Irani.
