From the outset of his career, Tiger Shroff has declared his adoration for Hrithik Roshan. In 2019’s War, the two finally agreed to share screen time, in which they were seen punching one another in action sequences as well as on the dance floor. Although Hrithik’s birthday greetings are coming in from across the world, Tiger has chimed in with a unique message of his own. He wrote, “Jo seekha hai aap se seekha hai (sic).”
Jackie Shroff is the only one who has witnessed their unusual bond since their early days. “Tiger has idolised Hrithik from his boyhood, and I have witnessed it,” he told Bombay Times about how as well as where it all began.
“When I was filming for King Uncle, Tiger was a four-year-old youngster, and I would have taken him to Goa alongside me,” he said. Hrithik had arrived alongside his father (director Rakesh Roshan) to help him. While I was busy shooting, he would give me my lines and care about me as well play around with my baby. Hrithik baba looks after my son as a baby. For me, seeing them together on TV was significant since I’ve witnessed their relationship. Inside the movie, Hrithik was just like his guru, and Tiger still regards him as such in real life. This was fascinating to watch their real-life equation appear on the screen.”
Actors Hrithik Roshan as well as Tiger Shroff are hard at work promoting their next movie War, but there was a catch: those who won’t be sharing the very same platform, according to news agency IANS. It’s all part of filmmaker Siddharth Anand’s strategy to have the public see Hrithik and Tiger’s on-screen battle when War hits theatres. “We want people to experience Hrithik and Tiger together for the first time, on only the big screen,” he told IANS. “War pits two of the biggest action heroes in one tremendous battle.”
