Tiger Shroff gives a dignified reply to RGV’s ‘transgender’ remark


Tiger Shroff has become the latest victim of Ram Gopal Varma’s unsavoury comments. After calling the ‘Baagi’ actor ‘gay’, ‘bikini babe’ who poses like Urmila Matondkar, the filmmaker called Tiger a ‘transgender’ and ‘greatest woman’ he ever saw, during a drunken conversation with Vidyut Jamwal a couple of days ago. The ‘Commando’ actor had recorded the telephonic conversation and made it public.

All this while Tiger had refrained from commenting on RGV’s nasty remarks about him, but he has finally reacted on the matter, and it was a dignified response.

Speaking at the launch of a kids entertainment channel in Mumbai, Tiger said that everybody had the freedom of speech, and RGV was his senior who has been a part of the industry for so many years, whereas he has entered recently. Therefore, it won’t be appropriate for him to speak his mind.

Tiger told reporters, “If this makes him (RGV) happy, it is okay, he is a senior man. It would be out of line for me to react. I don’t want to bring any shame to my father and mother as I don’t think they would want me to react.”

He humbly added, “I am glad that I have made some kind of an identity, a mark in the industry that people are at least talking about me. I have made some kind of an impact.”

Meanwhile, Tiger’s dad Jackie Shroff, who will be next seen in RGV’s ‘Sarkaar 3’ made a sarcastic remark on the matter. “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,” Bollywood Life quoted the senior Shroff as saying.

Tiger’s sister Krishna Shroff too was unaffected by RGV’s comments about her brother 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 for far longer than he has this early on in his career. He’s killing it.”

Tiger’s mom Ayesha had the perfect response and said, “While the dogs bark, the caravan passes on.”
