In an interview, Jackie Shroff opened up about Tiger Shroff and his rumoured girlfriend Disha Patani and said that 'Tiger found his first friend who is a girl at 25, till then he never looked around.' Jackie further clarifed that the two share the same interests and passions. Tiger and Disha dance and workout together. Jaggu Dada also said that Disha understands the 'value of discipline' as she comes from a 'family of army officers'. He concluded by saying that who know the two might get married in future or probably remain friends for life, but for now Tiger and Disha are just friends.

Jackie being proud of his son Tiger said: “God is kind, what else can you expect from your child! Tiger is setting an example for other kids to follow. He sleeps by 10.30 pm and is up by 6 am… He respects people and focuses on his craft… He steers clear of malice and is a man on a mission. Even for a porcupine his child is soft, so I won’t say more. Children love him and so do mothers, and grandmothers. I hope it always remains that’s way."

Tiger clarified on 'Koffee with Karan' saying: "We both have very similar interests. And I don't have very many friends in the industry. She is one of the very few friends I have that I'm comfortable with." Disha Patani in one of the interviews stated that Tiger is her "only friend" in Mumbai, they both like "to dance and work out" and they "connect through them". She further said that because she's hanging out with him all the time, perhaps that is why people feel that we’re in a relationship. She concluded by saying that they are only friends and if she was to hangout with any other guy, people will think she left Tiger for him.
