Ruffian tiger

Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger Shroff will debut in Sajid Nadiadwala’s production where he plays a ruffian from a small North Indian town.

Says a source, “The script written by Sanjeev Dutta who wrote Life In a Metro and Page 3, takes Tiger’s character in the Indian heartland.”

The role requires loads of action and dancing, Tiger’s twin forte. Says the excited debutante, “The action and dance are a big part of the script. I’ve been training really hard for those. And I don’t need to unlearn those skills. But yes, there’s a lot of new things I need to learn for the role.”

And for this he needs at least six months of training. Adds a source close to the film, “It’s a love story set in a small town in North India. The director Sabir Khan was earlier going to make Heer Aur Ranjha with Shahid Kapoor. But when he got Sanjeev Dutta’s script, he knew this was what he wanted to do with Jackie’s boy. The role has loads of action and dancing. Tiger is a toughie and also a lover-boy. It is just what audiences would expect from Jackie dada’s son.”

A hunt is on for a completely new face to star opposite Tiger.
