A sister is a gift. She’s the confidante, the one we fight with and still can’t live without. Actor Tiger Shroff, we’ve learnt, is not any different from any of us. He shares a similar bond with his sister Krishna Shroff, who will assist director Sabbir Khan on Tiger's next outing, Munna Michael.
Understandably, the project is immensely special for the Baaghi star. Michael Jackson, obviously, was the draw for the actor. But what brings the film closer to his heart is Krishna’s presence on the project.
“I can’t believe Krishna will be assisting on a film that I’m acting in. It makes the experience even more special and close to my heart,” beams the actor, adding, “At least, now I won’t feel homesick while working. I tend to miss my home and my comfort very often when I’m away for days shooting. Now, I will have my sister with me. I can talk to her. She’s my biggest support. I will not feel too far from home.”
Krishna is three years younger to Tiger. She has previously tried her hand at making documentaries and short films. Munna Michael will be her first big assignment in Bollywood. And big bro Tiger is most happy about his sister’s baby steps into showbiz.
“From what I understand and gauge, she’s not drawn towards acting as much as she’s drawn to making films. If my instincts are right, she will become a director. She has always wanted to be one,” says Tiger. “I don’t know what her first film as a director will be like. And I don’t know if I will act in her first film. But it will be a proud moment for our parents and me when she directs her first feature,” says Tiger.
Tiger will shoot a large part of Munna Michael at Teen Batti, Mumbai, the same neighbourhood where his father Jackie Shroff grew up and imbibed the bindaas attitude he’s known for. Now that both of Jackie’s kids will be on sets, we won’t be surprised if he lands on set to see them.
“My father should not be on set,” giggles Tiger. “You know, I won’t be able to shoot. I’ll freeze and fumble. Sabbir sir will only be calling ‘Cut’ between shots all day. I get nervous. Pray he doesn’t come on set,” says the actor.
