MUMBAI: After Krishna Shroff, Jackie Shroff’s daughter, posted almost topless pictures on Instagram by placing her arms strategically over her chest, there have been unending rumors that the girl will follow father, mother and brother into a career in acting. These pictures have been like mini-portfolios, artistically shot despite the skin exposure and have gone viral. Krishna is even seen smoking in them.
Krishna, who has made an acclaimed documentary named “Black Sheep” on transgenders, told a portal, “I’d love to be part of Hindi cinema. It is such an amazing industry that has given my family so much. However, I am not looking at an acting career. At least, not anytime soon.”
She explained that the pictures were just a part of a photoshoot that she did with her best friend for fun in her bedroom. “My friend is a photographer, who is building her portfolio to further her career. The two of us like to have fun with the camera and just shoot whatever is the mood of the moment. And since I like to put up aesthetic pictures for my private Instagram page, it’s a win-win situation for both my friend and me. It’s as simple as that!”
Meanwhile, her documentary focuses on the transgender community’s hopes and dreams and not the sordid side of their lives and has been made in collaboration with Krishna’s university professor Reshal Shah.
And, yes, Krishna has a boyfriend too, who is American Spencer Johnson. Like parents, like daughter, we guess. For while Jackie is a homespun Gujju, his mother belonged to Turkey, while his wife Ayesha had a European mother. Now let us see if Tiger Shroff traverses countries in his personal love life!
And now, here is Jackie’s reaction to the pictures: “I don’t like interfering in my kids’ lives. Both Tiger and Krishna are well brought-up kids and they understand what to do and how to do. They will be the best to answer about themselves. I don’t like talking about them, because I am comfortable with whatever they do.
And he further clarified: "Let me clarify one thing she is not topless in the pictures. For a picture to be topless, you won’t be wearing anything. You should have checked the picture a little more clearly. She has a towel wrapped around her. How can you even call it a topless picture?”
