Jackie Shroff: Tiger looks up to me!

New Delhi, June 3 -- Jackie Shroff may have acted in several action-packed movies in his four decade-long career, but he says that his son, actor Tiger Shroff's love for action is not inspired by him.

"No, I did not inspire Tiger. He is inspired by Hollywood actor Bruce Lee. Of course, he looks up to me, but he got exposed to his father's movies through his grandmother. My mother (Rita Shroff) used to watch my films a lot ... she was my biggest fan. So the kids would sit back with my mother and watch my films," says the 58-year-old, about his son Tiger, who made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti (2014) and delivered some power-packed action scenes in it.

Tiger, 25, is currently shooting for his next and, according to some reports, 50 bouncers have been employed to protect his look in the film from getting leaked. Jackie says it is a creative call made by the makers. "I think if the filmmakers want to protect the actor's look in their project, they have all the right to do so. They have worked on the creative for so long, and they definitely want people to see the film when the time is right," says Jackie, who will next be seen alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Sanjay Gupta's directorial.
