Mommy Ayesha and sis Krishna had earlier slammed RGV for his comments on Tiger Image: Facebook
For some strange reason, Tiger Shroff has been the target of Ram Gopal Varma's distorted sense of humour, as the filmmaker has taken potshots at the young actor every now and then in recent times. After his tweets on Tiger's masculinity, rather the lack of it, RGV has again stirred a controversy with his distasteful remarks against Tiger in a drunk conversation with Vidyut Jamwal, which the latter made public. The Shroff family has, however, decided to maintain their dignity, with even Tiger refusing to rise to the bait.
RGV called Vidyut in a completely inebriated state and said, "Tiger Shroff is the greatest woman I saw in my life." Not stopping at that, he also called Tiger a 'transgender'. Vidyut made the audio clip public and absolute pandemonium followed. Soon, Vidyut made the audio clip public and all hell broke loose.
RGV then apologised to Vidyut and Tiger and continued to bombard his Twitter timeline with a series of tweets. Take a look.

However, Tiger, who has always refrained from commenting on RGV's remarks, finally broke his silence on the issue and said that he takes all his comments in a positive way. "Umm everybody has a freedom of speech, of course, RGV is a senior, he has been in the industry for years, whereas I have recently entered the industry, so 'mann ki baat bolu toh it won't be appropriate!", Tiger was quoted as telling Indian Express at an event.
The Baaghi actor also said that he was glad that he had found some kind of an identity, that he had made a mark in the industry, so that people were talking about him. 'If this makes him (RGV) happy, it is okay, he is a senior man," he said. Impressive self-control, we say.
Tiger's dad Jackie Shroff, who has worked with RGV in Sarkar 3, is proud of his son and his work. "What can I say? My son has such an effect on some people that they leave their work to comment on my l'il cub," Jaggu Dada told an entertainment portal.
Tiger's sister Krishna, too, seemed unaffected by RGV's comments, and said, "I couldn't be prouder of my brother for already having such a massive effect on people who have been in the game far longer than he has this early on in his career. He's killing it."
Tiger is currently busy shooting for Munna Michael.
