Jackie Shroff opens up on his ‘cub’ Tiger Shroff buying a 31.5 crore new house: It was his dream since childhood
Tiger Shroff has moved out with his parents and sister Krishna from their Carter Road home in Bandra to a luxurious 8-bedroom flat in Khar, Mumbai. Tiger Shroff’s father, Jackie Shroff, talked out about this momentous moment in an interview with The Indian Express. The Ram Lakhan star told Indian Express, “Tiger dreamed of buying a house for his mother ever since he joined films. He kept working towards that dream. A child getting something for his mother is wonderful. He’s a very sweet and emotional guy.”
Earlier in a chat with ETimes, Tiger’s sister Krishna had opened up on their new abode and said, “We shifted three weeks back, very quietly with a puja done with just the four of us- dad (Jackie), mom (Ayesha), Tiger and I. It was a small, intimate ceremony. We are fast settling down and loving every bit of it. Our Carter Road flat, where we last resided, was on rent. This home is our very own.” She had further revealed that since moving into the new house, her father has started shuttling less between Mumbai and his farmhouse at Lonavala.

Coming back to Jackie, while speaking with Indian Express, the actor also opened up about his last film Salman Khan‘s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai releasing digitally and said that the film would have performed well if it had arrived in cinema halls. The big-screen experience is unique. Even if one does not know the person sitting next to one, they still sit like a big family under one roof. There’s no disturbance because you don’t have a pause button there.
Reflecting on Tiger’s growth over the years and what it takes to be the father of one of the heartthrobs of the country, Shroff said he believes he has “no contribution in bringing up Tiger to be such a good guy.” Tiger Shroff recently bought a new home and had his parents and sister Krishna Shroff moving in with him. Speaking on the milestone moment, Jackie Shroff said, “Tiger dreamed of buying a house for his mother ever since he joined films. He kept working towards that dream. A child getting something for his mother is wonderful. He’s a very sweet and emotional guy.”
He expressed that audience will take no time to return to cinema halls once they reopen as the magic of movies on the big screen cannot be achieved on the web. He also opined that OTT came at the right time and generated work, keeping the business afloat, but “jo chaadar pe films dekhi jaati hain, woh rumaal pe kaise dekhenge? (films meant for big screen cannot be watched on such a small screen).”
