Whether ac­tor Tiger Shroff (inset) is dat­ing as­pir­ing ac­tor Disha Patani or not may still be un­clear. But one thing is sure, he has the ap­proval and sup­port of his daddy dear­est. Talk­ing to us about how his son is busy mak­ing a ca­reer for him­self, ac­tor Jackie

Shroff (right) says: “He (Tiger) is so fo­cused that I won­der when he gets the time to date. Let him en­joy. He is young. Ab date nahi karega toh kab karega?”

While Tiger is yet to con­firm the buzz, Jackie says he’d only be glad if the ru­mours are true. “I haven’t met Disha, but if Tiger is dat­ing her, then it’s fan­tas­tic. If he cares for the girl and she cares for him, then there’s noth­ing wrong with it,” says the 58-year-old ac­tor, who made his de­but in Bol­ly­wood with Swami Dada (1982). Jackie went on to be known for his ac­tion­hero im­age, and says he’s happy that Tiger, too, went on to im­press ev­ery­one with his ac­tion skills in his de­but film, Heropanti (2014).

What other traits does his son share with him, we ask. “Tiger is grounded and re­spects ev­ery­one. One must hold on to the ground, as only then will they touch the sky on their own. I, too, have al­ways been that way,” says Jackie, who was in the Cap­i­tal to at­tend the launch of Fever 104’s new show, Sainath — Sab Ka Ma­lik Ek.

The ac­tor says do­ing the voiceover for the show was a great ex­pe­ri­ence. “I’m de­lighted to have got the hon­our of play­ing Sainath. (It was like) I was com­pletely pos­sessed when I was do­ing the voice over. The emo­tions came di­rectly from the heart,” says Jackie.

I haven’t met Disha (Patani), but if Tiger is dat­ing her, then it’s fan­tas­tic
