Tiger Shroff made his Bollywood debut in 2014 with Heropanti. Though he wasn’t lauded as an actor then, Shroff’s discipline, hard work, and sincerity were always appreciated. Over the 5 years of his career, he has only gotten better with acting and has become a favourite among the kids, owing to his kick ass and clean action sequences. Among many of his traits, his shyness is also very apparent, especially around women. And when he was spotted with MS Dhoni: The Untold Story actor, Disha Patani several times, rumors started floating of them dating and it has only lead people to believe that the two will soon get married too.
When Tiger’s father, Jackie Shroff was asked about the same, he, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, said that the two have been friends for a long time now and share great chemistry together. He answered that there are chances that the two may even get married in the future or remain friends, however they like. He was quoted as saying,
“Tiger found his first friend, who is a girl, at 25. Till then he never looked around. They share the same passions, dance and work-out together. She comes from a family of army officers, so, she understands the value of discipline. Who knows they may get married in future or remain friends for life. For now they are just friends.”
Though both of them never admitted to being in a relationship and always maintained that they are “just friends”, Disha’s frequent hanging out sessions with Tiger’s sister and mother, Krishna Shroff and Ayesha Shroff respectively have risen the speculations even higher.
Tiger on Koffee With Karan also had mentioned how the two enjoy each other’s company and have similar interests. He went on to add that they’re still keeping it at friendship so far and that’s about it. He said,
“We both have similar interests and I don’t have many friends in the industry. And she’s one of the very few friends I have that I am comfortable with.” He added, “I’m great friends with her. I love her company and we are keeping it at that, really.”
What is interesting to note is that Disha Patani will appear on the big screen with Tiger’s father, Jackie Shroff in Salman Khan’s Bharat this June. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie stars Tabu, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Manav Vij, and Disha Patani in pivotal roles along with a rumoured Varun Dhawan cameo. This will be their first movie together.
Tiger and Disha too have featured in a movie together last year in Baaghi 2 which was a huge hit and ended up becoming one of the highest grossers of the year. Apart from numerous appearances on Red Carpets together, they also featured in a Music-Dance Video before their movie, Befikra in 2016.
Though Disha is preparing for her big release in June with Bharat, Tiger too will be seen in Student of The Year 2 with Tara Sutaria and Ananya Pandey. The movie is scheduled to smash the theatres on May 10. In fact, he will return with another movie in the high octane action thriller Baaghi franchise, Baaghi 3 with Shraddha Kapoor next year.
