"it just doesn’t ignite that spark"
Krishna Shroff, the sister of Bollywood star Tiger Shroff, has decided that she will not do any Bollywood movies.
Shroff, a fitness enthusiast with a fiery personality, is in high demand for Bollywood films.
But despite getting loads of offers, she revealed that she has no plans to follow in her family’s footsteps and pursue an acting career.
According to Krishna Shroff, Bollywood films do not give her the same adrenaline rush that working out gives her.
Shroff says being in the gym gives her inner peace and happiness, and feels this cannot be replicated in any other industry.
Krishna Shroff revealed all in an exclusive interview with Bollywood Life.
Speaking about her multiple film offers, and her decision to reject them all, Shroff said:
“A lot and a lot. I’ve of course said ‘no’ to every one of them because I’ve been pretty solid and clear in my head from the beginning – it’s not something that I wanted to delve into, it just doesn’t ignite that spark within me.
“Fitness for example, like this (MMA and bodybuilding).
“This gives me that adrenaline rush that I want and crave for and that (movies) just has never really been something that I felt like I wanted to do.”
While she has rejected a large number of film offers, Krishna Shroff also stated that she has never regretted it.
When asked if she has any regrets, Shroff said:
“Honestly, never. You know, once my mind’s made up, I’m a very, very stubborn person.”
Clearly, Krishna Shroff has no interest in Bollywood, even though her brother Tiger and her father Jackie have had huge success in the industry.
However, Krishna Shroff believes that the children of stars are expected to live up to their parents’ legacy, and it is “unfair”.
Speaking previously about nepotism in Bollywood, she said:
“People talk about nepotism and how star kids have everything on a silver platter.
“We do, I agree. But once you get it, it is hard to keep it.
“There are so many expectations (from star kids).
“People expect you to be great because of the legacy your parents had before you, which is unfair.”
Krishna Shroff also said that, despite being given opportunities, many star kids make their own identity through hard work.
