He’s the son of Jackie Shroff, the Indian/Bollywood legend, and the first thing one probably notices about him is his physicality.
In case you missed it earlier, here’s the official movie trailer for his current romantic/action outing, Heropanti, where you can see a bit of him in action.
Tiger considers Bruce Lee his idol, and he came to prominence when he trained the legend that is Aamir Khan for Dhoom 3. He loves football, has become very proficient in taekwondo, and loves to dance too!
Enough about that, let’s get on with the workout and diet!
His trainer, Rajendra Dhole, who has been training Tiger for four years, says Tiger’s body is a mix of discipline, hard work and genetics. “We focus on strength training and keep the body fat percentage low. Tiger’s body fat is 8 to 12 per cent.”
He works out seven days a week focusing on different body parts.

He’s always followed a very healthy diet so doesn’t gravitate towards bad foods (no Double Whopper Diet here!). He watches his carb intake and doesn’t consume any past 5pm; that said he allowed himself one cheat day a week.
To get into top physical condition, to sculpt and tone his body for the film he followed a restrictive nutrient dense diet every day. No alcohol, cigarettes or supplements either as he reckons you should be able to get most of what you need from eating a good well-balanced diet. And don’t forget the water, he drinks tonnes of water every day to keep himself properly hydrated.
Highlights of the Tiger Shroff Diet Plan include:
Breakfast: 8 egg whites; oatmeal.
Snack: Dry fruits; whey shake.
Lunch: Brown rice with chicken or fish; boiled vegetables.
Snack: Protein shake. This is the meal before gymnastics class, so he keeps it light.
Dinner: Fish; green beans or broccoli.
