From his awkward beginnings in Heropanti in 2014 to 2021, when he has moved into a posh new apartment, Tiger Shroff has come a long way.

This, he says, is a gift to his parents, Ayesha and Jackie Shroff.

"This was on my to-do list even before I became an actor," he tells Subhash K Jha.

You have shifted into your new home. What does it feel like to live in a new residence?

Home always feels like home when my mother and father are with me.

Where I am with them is home to me.

My parents mean the world to me.

Everything I do, I do to make them feel proud.

I pray I never do anything to disappoint them.

Your father Jackie Shroff says this home is your gift to your mom and he is just a passerby?

Oh, you know how he is.

Dad is trying to be cool about it. He may act casual about it, but he is as excited about our new home as my mother.

We all are excited.

This home is equally important for my father, mother and sister.

To be able to afford such a posh home for someone so young is no joke. How do you see your journey so far?

I see it as just that, a journey.

I feel it's my parents' blessings that has brought me where I am.

I couldn't have hoped for a better family.

Don't you feel lost in a such a big house?

Honestly, the size of the house doesn't matter to me.

I am just so grateful to the Lord that I am able to buy a house for my parents.

This was on my to-do list even before I became an actor.

You sang Vande Mataram and the reaction has gone all the way to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. How does it feel?

So grateful to (Producer) Jackky Bhagnani to push me into singing this song.

I was to nervous as it was a huge responsibility to sing a song for our country.

I definitely wanted to give my 100 percent and put every ounce of emotion into the words and lyrics.

I was singing as it was meant to be the voice of every Indian.

I am most grateful to our honourable prime minister for his approval of our honest effort.
