Aamir Khan to launch Jackie Shroff's son Tiger
The industry buzz doing the rounds is that Bollywood star Aamir Khan, who has been the source of inspiration for many youngsters, will introduce Jackie Shroff’s son to the media at the promo of Tiger Shroff’s debut film ‘Heropanti’.
According to reports, actor Jackie Shroff’s son, Tiger Shroff, is preparing to make his big debut in May this year. And his father, who is quite excited about the launch, is planning to help in the promotion of the film, ‘Heropanti’.
Insiders reportedly said that Jackie has been getting calls from people within the industry to help his son. The source also said that many of Bollywood’s producers and directors have been reaching out to him to offer their support, too.
Reports say, Aamir Khan will be launching the trailer of the movie, which is scheduled to be released on May 23. The promo is scheduled to be launched in the 1st week of April.
Aamir, who was last seen with Jackie Shroff in the super-hit film ‘Dhoom 3’, is also known to share a great rapport with him.
Not only that, Aamir has known Tiger since his childhood days and even worked out with him in the same gym.
Reportedly, an insider close to the film’s production team said, “The makers and Jackie thought of getting Aamir on board when they were planning the first look. This was due to the closeness that Aamir and Jackie share. When Aamir was approached, he too was very keen to be part of Tiger’s launch, as he is fond of the young actor.”
Back in 2012, there were rumours that Aamir was going to launch Tiger but they turned out to be baseless. Aamir reportedly had said, “I have met Tiger on a couple of occasions. He is an extremely bright boy with a lot of potential and a very bright future... I think he will do very well for himself and has got a film on his own.”
Incidentally, in September 2009, Tiger is said to have declined the lead role in the remake of television show ‘Fauji’.
‘Heropanti’ marks the debut of Tiger Shroff, who will be seen in the lead role of the movie. It also features Kriti Sanon, Sandeepa Dhar and Vikram Singh among others.
The film is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt. Ltd and is directed by Sabbir Khan.
