There was enough reminiscing going on at the trailer launch of Heropanti yesterday, where Aamir Khan launched Jackie Shroff’s son – Tiger Shroff! So while the heropanti talk was floating, it was inevitable to ask Aamir of the first time he was called a hero. The actor replied in a lamentable tone, “No one called me a hero ever. I am still not a hero. Everyone called me chocolate boy.”
Yes, Aamir was probably the cutest chocolate boy of the industry as his first film had the female folk going gaga over him. So, what’s Baby Shroff’s take on heropanti and films?
“I was not keen on becoming an actor. I grew up on sports. Acting was not my first choice, but somewhere at the back of my mind there was this thought of films. My family, friends were asking me when I would get into films and what kind of film I will do. I am glad ‘Heropanti’ came my way,” Tiger said at the event.
Heropanti, directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and UTV, is slated to release on 23rd May 2014.
