Early life

Shroff was born as Jai Hemant Shroff on 2 March 1990 and officially changed his name to Tiger when he first debuted in movies.[6][7][8][9] Shroff was born to Indian film actor Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff (née Dutt). He is the elder of two siblings, his sister Krishna Shroff is three years younger than him.[10][11][12]

From his paternal side, he is of Gujarati and Uyghur ancestry[13][14] and from his maternal side, he is of Bengali and Belgian descent.[15][16][17][18]

He did his schooling at American School of Bombay. Shroff helped Aamir Khan to build his physique for Dhoom 3.[19] He also holds a fifth degree black belt in Taekwondo.[1]


Debut and Breakthrough (2014 - present)

In September 2009, Shroff was said to have declined the lead role in the remake of TV show Fauji.[20] In January 2010, it was reported that Subhash Ghai would be launching Shroff in the remake of his father's 1983 film Hero,[21] though Shroff eventually rejected the offer.[22] In May 2011, it was reported that Aamir Khan was also keen on signing Shroff,[23] however, the news was eventually termed as false.[24][25] In June 2012, Shroff was finally signed on by Sajid Nadiadwala to make his debut in Heropanti.[26][27]

Shroff and actress Shraddha Kapoor, during promotions of their film Baaghi (2016).

Heropanti released on 23 May 2014 and proved to be a box office success, despite mixed reviews from critics.[28][29] For his debut performance, Shroff garnered mainly mixed to positive reviews, with critics predominately praising his dancing skills and ability to perform stunts.[30][31] 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",[32] whereas Subhash K. Jha praised him for his versatility, saying "he emotes, he dances and yes, he can fight".[33] 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".[34] Furthermore, Anupama Chopra, though noting that he has star-like qualities and "very solid screen presence", called his dialogue delivery "off".[35]

Shroff then appeared in Sabbir Khan's action drama Baaghi, which turned out to be a major box office success grossing over 1 billion worldwide.[36] His performance in Baaghi earned him critical acclaim. Bollywood Hungama praised his action saying, "The action Tiger performed without use of double body is delight to see."[37] His next release was Remo D'Souza's superhero film, A Flying Jatt, which didn't do as well as his previous movies at the box office.

In 2017, Shroff starred in Munna Michael opposite Nidhhi Agerwal.[38][39]
