Tiger Shroff talks about the time he was called a ‘heroine’ due to his looks

The promo for episode 3 of ‘Pinch’ was released where Tiger Shroff can be seen talking about the trolls on social media.

Tiger Shroff addressed the trolling about his looks in a new promo video for the third episode of Arbaaz Khan’s talk show, Pinch. Tiger Shroff, the son of actor Jackie Shroff, made his film debut in Heropanti alongside Kriti Sanon. Today, he is one of the most renowned faces of Hindi Cinema.

In the promo video, Arbaaz Khan made a few disparaging remarks about Tiger Shroff, who responded with context and explanations.


The ‘War’ actor can be seen admitting to receiving hate in the early stages of his career. He said, “Before the release also, I used to be trolled a lot for my looks. People used to say, ‘is he a hero or a heroine? He doesn’t look like Jackie dada’s son at all.’ It was a deliberate move to play to my strengths.”

One of the mean comments was, “Aapke paas sab kuch hai, bas daadi nahi hai (You have everything, except a beard),” to which Tiger replied pointing at his face and said, “Yeh kya hai bhai (What’s this, then)’?”

Tiger said, “If you’re being trolled or bullied, it’s only because you’ve made an impact. Whatever I am today, it’s because of the audiences… As long I’m number one in your heart, that’s what matters to me.”

In the promo, he was also asked if he is a virgin, to which Tiger responded saying, “Like Salman bhai, I am a virgin.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Tiger will be next seen in ‘Heropanti 2’, ‘Baaghi 4’, ‘Rambo’ and ‘Ganapath’.
