Tiger Shroff gave an interview to a leading tabloid and the internet overreacted once again. The actor was asked about his relationship with Disha Patani and he said, “She is a pretty girl and it feels good to take a pretty girl around. It makes you look better.”
Some believed that it was a compliment for Disha while others misinterpreted it as a sexist comment on the actress. The ‘Heropanti’ actor further added, “Both of us are so busy with our careers and for a relationship you need to take out time. But yes when we are not shooting, I do meet up with her since we have a common friend circle. But every time we do we need being clicked by the paparazzi.”
Tiger’s mother, Ayesha Shroff took to Twitter and tweeted:
Not at all!🙏 it’s a compliment and he means it’s the ladies that make the men look better!!😄😄🌸🌸❤️❤️🙏🙏 https://t.co/uIW7Z5ajsK

This is not the first time Tiger is being called out as sexist. It was a few weeks ago that Tiger cracked a joke about how he would prefer a stay-at-home girl from a village, who would “keep the house clean and give me home-cooked food.”
Won’t public figures, making such statements, obviously create controversy?
