Tiger Shroff is one of the most popular actors of his generation. The actor made his debut in the Bollywood industry with the 2014 film Heropanti along with Kriti Sanon and he has successfully managed to carve a niche for himself in the industry but many fans would not know that Tiger is not the A Flying Jatt actor’s real name. Yes, you read that right!

In an old interview with Hindustan Times in 2014, the actor revealed the reason behind the change in his name and it will surely make you go LOL! The actor said: “I used to bite as a kid, like bite everyone around. I bit my teacher in school, and even got punished for that.” That’s why his name was changed to Tiger Shroff from Jai Hemant and that is the name given to him by his father Jackie Shroff.
