On the occasion of Father’s Day, the actor talked about his responsibilities as a father.
Jackie Shroff says that his children have benefited from the upbringing of their mother Ayesha and grandparents. In an interview to ETimes, the actor said, “I give full credit to Tiger’s mother and grandmother who have brought up both my children. When he was young, I was not present there. I was such a father who used to leave for shooting in the morning and return home late at night. The values you see in Tiger are the teachings of his mother, who taught him to respect people and be kind.

The actor further says, ‘I was not there when Tiger and Krishna were children and I could not teach them anything. Tiger learned from his mother, grew up among women who were the force in his life, and I was a father who came and went. Jackie gets emotional as he remembers Tiger’s birth . He recalls, ‘I will never forget the smile he gave me when I was born. He was lying in one of the incubators present there and I was looking for my son in them, when I saw him he smiled at me and I thanked God for it.
Today, Jackie is proud to see his son as a successful film star. He revealed, ‘I really like it when people call me Tiger Shroff’s father. This situation is after the release of ‘Heropanti’. Children love Tiger very much and I have seen the mothers of those children saying, ‘He is the father of Tiger Shroff’. I am very happy to see that kids love Tiger very much. Tiger has put four moons on my name.
