It’s funny how one wrong word can sc**w up your ca­reer: Tiger

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja

Tiger Shroff has stayed away from any neg­a­tive sto­ries around him, ever since he started his ca­reer in Bol­ly­wood. How­ever, the ac­tor’s re­cent com­ment, where he al­legedly re­ferred to his Stu­dent of the Year 2 co-stars as ‘pad­ding’, didn’t go down well with peo­ple and he was trolled on so­cial me­dia.

Al­though Tiger did clar­ify his stance on this, talk­ing to us re­cently, he again picked on the sub­ject and shared his views. “I don’t un­der­stand why peo­ple these days over­re­act un­nec­es­sar­ily on every­thing that an ac­tor says. I used ‘pad­ding’ so ca­su­ally and got badly scr**ed. It’s so funny how us­ing one wrong word can screw up your ca­reer,” says Tiger.

The 27-year-old, who is in Delhi to pro­mote his next film, Munna Michael, was at his com­posed best through­out the in­ter­view but got vis­i­bly up­set when he re­called the re­cent back­lash that he faced. “I mean, come on! I am not a sex­ist or a racist or any­thing like that. I don’t get un­der peo­ple’s skin or pick up un­nec­es­sary fights. Ev­ery­one knows the kind of per­son I am,” says Tiger, adding that his state­ment was highly mis­un­der­stood.

Ex­plain­ing what he meant, he adds, “What I meant by ‘pad­ding’ was that di­rec­tors and pro­duc­ers pad-up — pro­vide a cush­ion and pack­age a film. Cast­ing Tiger Shroff may also be some sort of a pad­ding, be­cause even I have only that much to of­fer.”
