Tiger Shroff will be launched by Farhan Akthar and trained by Aamir Khan

Recently, there was much speculation about Tiger Shroff (Jackie and Ayesha’s son) being part of Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Ashiqui 2’. But his parents dismissed these as rumours, while hinting at something else in the offing.
Now it’s official: Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment have lapped up Tiger for a Reema Kagti directed film under their banner. Reema had earlier directed ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd’ for Farhan’s banner and she is also helming the Aamir-starrer ‘Talaash’. Zoya Akhtar and Reema will co-script an action-oriented love story for this star son’s debut! The film is slated to hit the floors by end 2012.
This also puts paid to the rumours that Subhash Ghai (who launched Jackie) would get to do the honours of casting Tiger in the remake of the Jackie starrer Hero. Jackie had even endorsed that “Tiger has it laid out for him. If Subhashji hadn’t given me a break I wonder what would have happened to me.” But obviously Tiger had other plans!
Incidentally, Aamir Khan has taken Tiger under his wing and is said to be training him! The superstar and the newbie apparently hang out together and hit the gym at Aamir’s home. Jackie and Aamir have remained friends ever since they worked together in Rangeela, so Aamir considers Tiger part of his family.

We guess this is one to look forward to: Aamir as coach and Farhan as producer. What more could a Tiger ask for?
