Even while prepping for the role, the young actor would often be seen at Aamir's place — they happen to be neighbours — to seek advice and acting tips.

But, of late, Tiger has not had a chance to meet his mentor. Reason? Both of them are busy with their upcoming projects.

"Aamir sir was kind enough to invite me to his house a couple of times before I began my career. Of late, we haven't met since he is quite busy working on his next film, 'Dangal', while I am devoting all my time to prep up for 'Baaghi'. It's an intense role and Sabbir (Khan, director) sir is making me go through gruelling workshops with the rest of the star cast almost everyday," he says.

Tiger's father and veteran actor Jackie Shroff shares a close bond with Aamir and their bonding dates back to the time when they appeared together in Ram Gopal Varma's 'Rangeela' (1995). The superstar, who has known Tiger since his childhood, has also apparently worked out with him in the same gym.
