Tiger Shroff, who was trolled by filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma on his 27th birthday, finally responded to his offensive tweets. The Baaghi actor told news agency PTI that 54-year-old director is entitled to his opinion. The actor said: "I am not even half the man that my father is. He is the original hero. Even if I tried I can't be like him. But everyone has the freedom of speech. He is a senior director, so, there's not much I can say to him." Tiger Shroff, who made his Bollywood debut in 2014 with Heropanti, told PTI: "I try to be my own individual self and be different. I try to express my individuality as much as I can. Some might appreciate my artistic expression, some may not. To each his own."
Ram Gopal Varma had posted a picture of the actor on Twitter, captioned: "U are great at martial arts but if BRUCE LEE ever posed like a bikini babe like u he wouldn't hav bcm BRUCE LEE..Please think(sic)." The Satya director even advised Tiger Shroff to learn 'machoism' from his father.
