Bollywood star Jackie Shroff feels proud about his actor son Tiger’s achievements in the industry at a young age. Tiger, 28, has emerged as one of the most bankable stars in the younger generation of Bollywood with the success of films like Baaghi and Baaghi 2.

“I am so thankful to all those people who’ve given him so much affection and love. They just love my little boy. When I go out, I realise that I’m known by his name now, that I’m his father which makes me so happy,” said Jackie.

He said Tiger was initially under a lot pressure about the outcome of Baaghi 2, but with the film reportedly earning Rs 243 crore worldwide, he is relieved. Before Baaghi 2, Tiger’s last two outings Flying Jatt and Munna Michael had failed at the box office. “He said ‘after a long time I slept well’. I had never heard him say that. So I really thank people for making my son’s film a success,” Jackie said.
