Seemingly unperturbed by director Ram Gopal Varma’s mean tweets that he should learn ‘machoism’ from his father, actor Tiger Shroff today said he is fine if someone doesn’t like his “artistic expressions”. Last week on Tiger’s birthday, Varma tweeted alongside a picture of the young star which showed him emerging from the sea. Calling him a bikini babe, the director said he should pose more like a man. Reacting to Varma’s comments, Tiger told reporters at an event, “I am not even half a man as my father is. He is the original hero. Even if I try I can’t be like him. But everyone has freedom of speech. He is a senior director, so, there’s not much I can say. I try to be my own individual and express my individuality. Some might appreciate my artistic expressions, some may not. To each his own.”

Tiger interacted with the media on the sidelines of Mumbai International Motor Show 2017, which he inaugurated. The actor’s dignified response is a departure from his mother Ayesha Shroff’s reaction to Varma’s statements. She was quoted by a news website as saying, “I was taken aback at the nastiness of his (Ramu’s) rant. It didn’t upset Tiger one bit. I don’t understand what the whole rant was about in the first place. What triggered it off? We have nothing to say about Ramu.”

She was also reported saying, “I don’t understand why we still loosely use these outdated terms like ‘gay’ for defining somebody’s style. The world has evolved so much and everybody has their own individual, personal and artistic expressions. To me, a real man is one who knows how to treat a woman with respect and I have two in my life — Jackie and Tiger.”

After Ayesha’s reaction, Varma defended himself saying that his comments were just as a fan of Tiger’s father Jackie, with whom has worked in Rangeela.
