Remember papa Jackie's first Bollywood project 'Hero'? Now, Tiger Shroff to debut in Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Heropanti'

Jackie Shroff entered Bollywood with Subhash Ghai’s Hero in 1982 and became a star overnight. Now, life’s coming to a full circle for him, thanks to his son Tiger.

We dug out a possible poster of Tiger’s debut from a fan site. Here’s a look...

Thirty years on, Jackie will now witness Tiger making his much-anticipated debut in Sajid Nadiadwala’s film titled Heropanti. And we can’t miss the striking resemblance of the titles. This news comes after many months of speculation over whether it would be Aamir Khan or Subhash Ghai who would launch Jackie’s puttar. Looks like Sajid has finally done the act.

Sabbir Khan (of Kambakth Ishq fame) who will be directing Tiger’s debut film confirms. He adds, “Yes, the title is Heropanti and the title came from the character of the boy that Tiger plays. The character is little above the ordinary. In normal life, we all follow the set norms and rules. We do not move out of the box but Tiger is someone who is flamboyant and does what he wants to.”


Khan adds, “Also the fact is that he is Jaggudada’s son and we could not have got a more apt title. It was a title that Sajidbhai and I came up with. We are still finalising the female lead and will start the film next month.”
