Tiger Shroff’s kicks and punches are among the greatest in Bollywood right now, but one name, in particular, appears to be influenced by Tiger’s agility and suppleness.
When megastar Amitabh Bachchan praised Tiger’s action approach on Thursday, the young star was taken aback.
Tiger referred to Bachchan senior as “the greatest action hero” after their beautiful exchange of admiration.
It all started when Amitabh Bachchan posted a photo collage of himself practicing kicks. Because Boman Irani can be seen alongside him, the photographs appear to be from the sets of Uunchai.
“Seeing Tiger Shroff getting all those ‘like’ numbers through his flexible kick abilities, I thought I’d give it a go, in the hope of garnering even a small percentage of ‘likes,'” Big B wrote in the caption.
Tiger Shroff couldn’t contain his delight
Tiger couldn’t contain his delight. He reposted the photo and replied, “Ok…had to take this opportunity and show off a little when the greatest star of our country and the greatest action hero had some generous words for me. On a serious note, sir, if I still can kick like you even a few years later, it will be a blessing. #legend #mrbachchan #blessed”.
Amitabh’s action drew the attention of not only fans but also B-town celebrities. “Respects,” wrote Tiger’s father, Jackie Shroff.
Ayesha Shroff, his mother, also replied to the message. “Amit Ji, the day someone comes even near to the Aakhri Rasta kick to break down the door, I’ll retire and move to the mountains!” said actor Rohit Bose Roy.
Navya Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan also left sweet emojis. Shilpa Shetty, Huma Qureshi, Sanjay Kapoor, Badshah, Rakul Preet, Angad Bedi, Tisca Chopra, and others called Amitabh the “OG” and expressed their admiration for the two actors.
On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan has Runway 34, Brahmastra, and Goodbye lined up. Tiger Shroff has Heropanti 2, Ganapath, and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan in his kitty.
