"How do I react to this so-called competition between the father and son? I feel sorry for my father that his film is releasing the same day as his son's film," said Tiger.

So would Tiger be watching his screen debut with his secret South Mumbai girlfriend that a section of the press has written about?

Tiger laughed and said, "I wish there was one. But there is no girlfriend from South, North or Central Mumbai. Or any part of the world." (Also read: Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon's Heropanti Impresses Students )

Meanwhile, Tiger is really excited about adopting a real tiger from the Nagpur zoo.

"I adopted a tiger for two reasons. It is my favourite animal. But more importantly tiger is facing extinction."

Tiger says he wants to use his potential stardom to help the less privileged.

"Whatever little clout I gain through my career, I'd like to use it to help as many lives as I can. I truly believe that power and responsibility go together," he said.
