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