Hrithik Roshan revealed how he used to meet Tiger Shroff at the gym back in the day but he never knew that he was a big fan of his work. Here is the complete story!
As Siddharth Anand’s highly-anticipated War gets ready to hit cinema screens tomorrow, its lead actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff remain confident about the film’s success at the box office. In an exclusive interview with NDTV, the action star revealed how he used to meet Tiger Shroff at the gym back in the day but he never knew that he was a big fan of his work. Sharing his first memory of Tiger, Hrithik said, "And after that, I saw him in the gym when I was training for Krrish 3. I used to go to this gym called True Fitness and he used to be there always.”
He added, “Someone who I used to look at and get encouragement from. He was just always smiling. I had no idea that he had liked my work. I didn't know at that time. But I loved seeing him in the gym." Hrithik's Krrish 3 released in 2013 and Tiger made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti the following year.
Hrithik revealed that Tiger was "a little plump" at the time. Can you believe it? "I remember him being a little plump. He used to be plump but he was very very strong. And every day, as I was making my progress, it was almost like as if he was there, observing my progress and giving me a thumbs up at every stage." Hrithik said he first saw Tiger on the sets of 1993 film King Uncle, starring Jackie Shroff. He was assisting his filmmaker father Rakesh Roshan for the film: "My very first one is one I think Tiger might not remember. My very first one is my father (Rakesh Roshan) was shooting with his dad (Jackie Shroff). Our fathers were working and I was the assistant for King Uncle. He (Tiger) had come along with his dad and yeah, that's my first memory of him."
