When Sajid turned football coach for Tiger

Sajid Nadiadwala and his production team have been busy training Tiger Shroff, for the much awaited Heropanti. But there is a story behind how Tiger met this popular Bollywood producer.

Tiger was introduced to Sajid as a 5 year old boy by father Jackie Shroff, as Tiger accompanied Jackie to an enjoyable football match. Sajid regularly played football during those days and was a tough goal-keeper. After the match, Jackie walked up to Sajid and expressed his desire for the ace producer to train his son in the game.

And now, Sajid’s entire unit is working towards Tiger’s larger-than-life Bollywood debut with Heropanti. Reminiscing the incident, Sajid states, “I am very happy with how the movie is shaping up and the fact that I am actually fulfilling the responsibility given to me 15 years ago by Jackie to train his son. It certainly is a different space, but training it is!”

Produced by Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. (NGEPL), Heropanti is directed by Sabbir Khan. Starring Tiger Shroff and Kirti Sanon in lead roles, the film is slated to release on the May 16, 2014.
