Jackie Shroff and son Tiger Shroff both made their highly anticipated debut on Karan Johar’s couch inKoffee With Karan. The first thing you will notice about the father-son duo is how they are the complete opposite of each other.
While Jackie is the flamboyant charmer who says it like it is without any filters, Tiger is more subdued and homely, an all-out innocent lad.
Here are some of the highlight from the highly entertaining episode:
The most loved man in Bollywood:
“If I was in a chawl, you wouldn’t invite me to your parties,” the ever bindaas Jackie tells Karan who can’t help but compliment the actor for being who he is – a true blood movie star. Jackie spoke about his humble beginnings and also about how he never let his family or himself get affected by his failures in the past. His father had predicted that he would be a movie star and it was the movie Kaash that established him as a bonafide actor.
The definition of sweet, innocent and shy – Tiger Shroff
“Just because I’m Jackie Shroff’s son does not give me the right to call myself a hero,” Tiger confessed about how being a star-kid is a boon but with a lot of pressure and expectations. He spoke about how he was very shy in college and that for him it is all about work, work and some more work. He feels that, because of too much focus on his dance and action and songs – his acting has not been highlighted and that he has a long way to go and that his contemporaries have a better edge than him.
Jackie Shroff’s leading ladies get candid
“Woh mera hero hai,” Meenakshi Sheshadri (Jackie’s first co-star in Hero) exclaimed. From Poonam Dhillon to Juhi Chawla, Jackie’s leading ladies got candid about him. All spoke about how unbearably good-looking the man was with his tight jeans and all around swag. Even Boman Irani, Subhash Ghai and Vidhu Vinod Chopra spoke about his acting skills and his charm in general.
Bindass Rapid Fire round
“I wouldn’t wake up, I would just lie down,” is what Jackie would do if he woke up as Kangana Ranaut. This rapid fire round was indeed rapid with a lot of fire. Jackie’s advice for the younger lot is that they should not be like him. He terms Ranbir Kapoor as a Hero as well as a Devdas for always getting his heart broken. He has nothing but admiration for his co-star Madhuri Dixit and he’s buddies with all the three Khans – Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan.
Tiger, on the other hand, termed Sonam Kapoor as a Diva, Hrithik Roshan as an Underdog and Kangana Ranaut as the Queen of Hearts. He would like to learn how to be more carefree from Salman, how to market from SRK, How to get into the skin of a character from Aamir and how to make money like Akshay Kumar.
Pillar of strength Ayesha Shroff gets candid on the men in her life
“I’m proud of you,” is what Jackie’s wife and Tiger’s mother Ayesha Shroff said about her son. She made a special appearance on the show and revealed how lucky she was to have Jackie as her husband and her pillar of strength. She spoke fondly of her son and how his Bollywood debut made her incredibly proud as mothers would come up to her and tell her that Tiger was the reason their kids are inspired and are no longer couch potatoes.
Tiger revealed that although Jackie favours his sister Krishna Shroff over him, he has his mother by his side and will always be Mamma’s boy!
