Tiger Shroff’s grandfather fought in World War II
Ayesha Shroff, mother of Tiger Shroff, shared some unheard-of pictures of her father Ranjan Dutt on social media on Tuesday. She also disclosed that her father had served in World War II. Sharing the pictures on her Instagram handle, Shroff wrote, “Tiger’s grandfather training to fly Tiger Moths. I guess he was around 18 or 19 years old when he fought in World War 2. True grit and true valour. Decorated for his bravery by his India. I’m proud to be his daughter. Jai Hind🙏🏻.”
Ranjan Dutt, the father of Ayesha Shroff, is pictured alongside other fighter pilots in the black and white images. As soon as Shroff shared the pictures, many friends from the film fraternity and fans flooded the comments section of the post with messages. While Salil Acharya wrote, “Wowwww,” Ahmed Khan’s wife Shairaa commented, “RESPECT ✊ ♥️.” “It’s in The Blood Ma’am. Warrior Mindset 🔥,” read a fan comment.
A couple of weeks ago, Ayesha Shroff had remembered her father and shared his picture on Instagram. She captioned the photo, “Remembering my dad on this day🙏🏻❤️ I guess I definitely inherited some of his guts!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️ @apnabhidu @tigerjackieshroff @kishushroff.”
Tiger Shroff has stated on Arbaaz Khan’s celebrity discussion programme Pinch that he is proud of his ancestry. “My dad’s mom is Turkmenistani, a Mongolian-Chinese, a Muslim, and my dad’s (Jacky Shroff) dad is Gujarati,” he had stated. I don’t know what that makes me, but my mom’s mom is French and my mom’s dad is Bengali, so I’m a combination of a lot of different things. Tiger’s next film appearance will be in Vikas Bahl’s Ganpath. The movie is slated to hit theatres on December 23.
