Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan

Tiger Shroff is a die-hard fan of Hrithik Roshan just like all of us and this is not a secret. Tiger often shares dance videos in which he is grooving to hit tracks of his idol. Tiger admires the Kaabil actor and has often expressed his fondness for him. Well, the two actors will soon be sharing screen space together in Siddharth Anand movie, which is an action-drama.

Both Hrithik and Tiger are known for their flawless action scenes and dance moves, hence, the makers are all set to cash in on these talents of the two actors by filming a special dance-off. Well, this has made us quite excited but Tiger is nervous as he will be facing his ''hero''. During an interview with Hindustan Times, the actor spilled the beans about the dance-off and even went on to call himself ''gareebo ka Hrithik Roshan''.

"I am intimidated by him. My next film is my biggest challenge. I am facing my hero... I call myself gareebo ka Hrithik Roshan, so there is already a comparison there (smiles). It's an honour for me to stand in the same frame as him. We are yet to shoot the dance-off. It's too hot right now, so we have postponed it. But I am both excited and jittery about it," said Tiger.

Earlier, Tiger paid tribute to Hrithik Roshan on his birthday by recreating Ek Pal Ka Jeena from2000 blockbuster movie Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai. "Blessed to be working with my inspiration. Thank you for being born and giving direction and inspiration to so many of us!,'' he captioned it.

On a related note, the yet untitled action thriller was announced by Yash Raj Films on the occasion of legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra's 85th birth anniversary on September 27. The film has been extensively shot in several countries including Spain, Georgia, Italy, Portugal and Sweden and India. Meanwhile, Siddharth Anand has earlier directed Hrithik earlier in Bang Bang.

On a related note, Tiger recently featured in Student of the Year 2 which was slammed by critics and public alike. On the other hand, Hrithik, who gained weight to play the role of mathematician Anand Kumar in his upcoming Super 30 is now rigorously sweating it out in the gym. 

For unversed, Super 30 has again been postponed to avoid clash with Kangana Ranaut's Mental Hai Kya.  Earlier, the film got delayed due to controversies. Firstly, Anand Kumar, on whom Super 30 is based, got accused of cheating, followed by sexual harassment allegations against director Vikas Bahl during Me Too Movement.
