Tiger Shroff felicitated with 5th degree black belt


Tiger Shroff has been awarded an honorary fifth degree black belt by the World Taekwondo Headquarters.

On the occasion, the 'Heropanti' star urged people to take up Taekwondo for a disciplined life and said, "Ever since childhood, I've always been practicing martial arts. I urge people to get involved in martial arts. It teaches you discipline and you can apply that discipline in your daily lives, in your jobs, your careers, in your house. It is a very healthy lifestyle".

The 24-year old son of veteran actor Jacky Shroff also highlighted the need for martial arts programmes in schools, especially for the kids, keeping in mind all the problems that are happening in the society.

Shroff has received the black belt after his stunning action sequences in his debut movie, 'Heropanti', impressed officials.
