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 actor admitted receiving a lot of hate surrounding his looks early in his career. He spoke about the same and revealed that people used to ask 'is he a hero or a heroine?’
Tiger Shroff 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.
