Know How Tiger Shroff Reacted To Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Bikini Babe’ Comment About Him
Mumbai: Bollywood celebrities are often trolled by fans and audiences. They also have to contend with trolling by their own fraternity and that can pinch.
Something of the sort pinched Tiger Shroff in the latest episode of Arbaaz Khan’s talk show, Pinch. In the show, Arbaaz Khan puts celebrities in the corner by reading mean comments at them and this one was from filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma.
Ram Gopal Varma in a series of tweets called Tiger a ‘bikini babe’ and wrote that he should learn ‘machoism’ from his father. “No one can match up to Bhidu, except Bhaijaan ( Salman Khan). Tough to match up to Bruce Lee also, so sir, I think you’re absolutely right,” Tiger said.
The young actor admitted that he’d received a lot of hate surrounding his looks early in his career. He said in Hindi, “Before the release also, I used to be trolled a lot for my looks. People used to say, ‘is he a hero or a heroine? He doesn’t look like Jackie dada’s son at all.’ It was a deliberate move to play to my strengths.” One troll said, “Aapke paas sab kuch hai, bas daadi nahi hai (You have everything, except a beard),” to which Tiger pointed at his bearded face, and said, “Yeh kya hai bhai (What’s this, then)’?”
“If you’re being trolled or bullied, it’s only because you’ve made an impact. Whatever I am today, it’s because of the audiences… As long I’m number one in your heart, that’s what matters to me,” he said.
