Tiger Shroff is eagerly waiting for his debut film Heropanti to hit the screens on May 23 in India (May 22 in the UAE) and he is happy yet nervous as Kochadaiiyaan, featuring his dad Jackie Shroff as a villain, will release the same day.

The 24-year-old is already making news for his daring stunts. He says that his hard work has made him secure about Heropanti.

“My father is also in that movie superstar Rajinikanth starrer Kochadaiiyaan. He is a villain in that movie. It will be father-son competition on May 23.

“I am nervous about both the actors in Kochadaiiyaan, but I have worked so hard, so I am secure about Heropanti and happy to show the audience what we have done and what we have accomplished,” Shroff, who started preparing for his role since he signed the movie in June 2012, said.

The newcomer’s fate is still uncertain but he believes he has made an “impact”, thanks to Twitter jokes on him.

“One day I came across a news that read Tiger Shroff trending on Twitter. I clicked on it and saw people making fun on my name. I laughed reading them,” he said.

“If you are being talked about already at this stage, that means somehow or the other, you have made an impact already. Publicity is publicity — good or bad. If no one was talking about me, it would’ve been something to worry about. But I am clear I have made an impact,” he added.

Shroff’s clean shaven face and hair reaching until his eyebrows are also being talked about, but he says talent will trump looks.

“I want the audience to accept me as who I am. If you don’t like me, I’ll try and change but I am sincere and honest to my work and I want that to come across. Looks are secondary. I want to prove my talent,” said Shroff, who doesn’t mind taking classes to be a better dancer, actor and performer.
