Tiger Shroff is a big fan of his father, Jackie Shroff. He has watched all his dad's films, some of them repeatedly.

"My favourite was Shiva Ka Insaaf where my dad played a super-hero in 3D. As a child, I used to watch that film on a video cassette over and over again until I knew every word of every dialogue."

Now, Tiger has another favourite. "I love his role in Bharat. It's so much like his real life, passionate and all heart, someone who would do anything for his family."

Tiger loved the film, Salman and his father.

And what about his special friend, Disha Patani?

"Oh, she's fabulous in a brief role. I loved her song Slow motion. It's an honour to be part of a film like this," says Tiger, who hopes to team up with Salman Khan soon.

Meanwhile, he has another big star, Hrithik Roshan, for company in his next release, the untitled Yash Raj film.

"This is the first time I am doing a two-hero film and that too with Hrithik Sir, whom I've idolised forever. Since my childhood, I have aimed to be a dance and action hero like him."
