In a visit on Arbaaz Khan’s talk program, Pinch, Tiger Shroff responded to Ram Gopal Varma’s derogatory remarks about him.

Tiger Shroff replied his trolls in a very professional manner, in the most recent episode of Arbaaz Khan’s chat show, Pinch, one of whom was none other than filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma.

On Pinch, which is currently in its second season, Arbaaz Khan puts celebrities in the corner by reading mean comments at them.

Tiger Shroff claims that he was compared unfavorably to his father, Jackie Shroff, even before his debut picture was out, and that he had to face comments about his appearance.

In a series of tweets, Ram Gopal Varma referred to Tiger as a “bikini babe” who 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.

Tiger revealed that early in his career, he faced a lot of backlash because of his appearance.

He said, “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.
