Jai Hemant "Tiger" Shroff (born 2 March 1990) is an Indian film actor and martial artist, who works in Hindi films.[1] The son of actor Jackie Shroff and producer Ayesha Dutt, he made his film debut with the lead role in the 2014 action-comedy Heropanti, which earned him a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut nomination.[2][3][4] Shroff went on to star in the action thriller Baaghi (2016) and its sequel Baaghi 2 (2018), both of which were commercially successful.[5][6][7]

Early life[edit]

Shroff was 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.[8][9][10][11] He is the elder of two siblings; his sister Krishna Shroff is three years younger.[12][13][14]

From his paternal side, he is of Gujarati and Turkish ancestry[15][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.[25]

Shroff helped Aamir Khan to build his physique for Dhoom 3.[26] He is awarded honorary fifth degree black belt in Taekwondo.[27]

Since young age, Shroff's major hobby is dancing, and he admires the dance forms breakdancing, popping, and locking. He notes Michael Jackson as his inspiration and says he would like a dance face-off with Hrithik Roshan, Varun Dhawan and Chris Brown.[28]

Career[edit]

Shroff and his A Flying Jatt co-star Jacqueline Fernandez in 2016

In June 2012, Shroff was signed on by Sajid Nadiadwala to make his debut in Heropanti.[29][30] He underwent flexibility training under Ziley Mawai for this role.[8] Heropanti released on 23 May 2014 and proved to be commercial success despite receiving negative reviews from critics.[31][32] For his debut performance, Shroff garnered mainly mixed to positive reviews, with critics primarily praising dancing skills and ability to perform onerous stunts.[33][34] 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",[35] whereas Subhash K. Jha praised him for his versatility, saying "he emotes, he dances and yes, he can fight".[36] 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".[37] Furthermore, Anupama Chopra, though noting that he has star-like qualities and "very solid screen presence", called his dialogue delivery "off".[38]

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.[39] Bollywood Hungama praised his action saying, "The action Tiger performed without use of double body is delight to see."[40] Shroff's final release of 2016 was Remo D'Souza's superhero film, A Flying Jatt, alongside Jacqueline Fernandez.[41] Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and directed by Remo D'Souza, the film grossed 420 Million in India.[42] In 2017, Shroff starred in Munna Michael, along with Nidhhi Agerwal.[43] 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.[44]

In 2018, Shroff starred opposite Disha Patani in the action thriller Baaghi 2, a sequel to his 2016 film Baaghi. The film emerged as a major commercial success and proved to be the sixth highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2018.[45][46]

In 2019, he starred opposite newcomers Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria in the sequel of Karan Johar's teen-age romantic-comedy Student of the Year (2012), titled Student of the Year 2, released in May 2019.[47] Rajeev Masand of News18 called Shroff's performance "the film’s singular strength".[48] Ronak Kotecha from The Times of India agree by saying "Tiger Shroff pretty much carries the film on his well-toned shoulders".[49]

Upcoming films[edit]

He will star alongside Hrithik Roshan and Vaani Kapoor in Yash Raj Films' Fighters. This will be directed by Siddharth Anand and will release in October 2019.[50] He will also reunite with Shraddha Kapoor in the action sequel Baaghi 3 (scheduled to release in March 2020), after which he will appear in the remake of the Hollywood film franchise Rambo, with the first film scheduled to release in October 2020.[51]

Other work[edit]

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.[52]
