My father is my closest friend: Tiger Shroff

New Delhi: Newcomer Tiger Shroff says his actor father Jackie Shroff is his closest and coolest friend.

The 23-year-old actor, who is making his debut with `Heropanti`, says he never keeps anything from his father.

"He (Jackie) is like a bigger brother and a friend. He is a `bindass` man, so he is the coolest friend I have. You can talk to him about anything you want. Unfortunately, we don`t get to spend much time because we are both busy with our careers," Tiger told.

Directed by Sabbir Khan, the Sajid Nadiadwala produced film is set to hit theatres this Friday.

The newcomer feels that he has a great responsibility to meet the expectations of the people in `Heropanti`, which also stars newcomer Kriti Sanon.

"I can`t take advantage of my father`s position, that is a bigger responsibility I have. He is a phenomenal actor and has a great goodwill so that leaves me with an even bigger responsibility. Being a star`s son I take that as a plus. I am very blessed to be in the situation," he said.

"People have expectations from me. They still remember him for `Hero` which was a superhit. So there are challenges. That makes me work harder and I push on my limits. I hope that I get to prove myself," he added.

Tiger says as opposed to his outgoing character in `Heropanti`, he is a bit of introvert in real life.

"My character is very different from me in reality. He is a very confident guy and I am very shy. I don`t have many friends. I am a workaholic. I am very particular and uptight about everything," Tiger said.

"On the other hand my character likes to chill in life. He is a very social and has a good time," he added.
