The team of the Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff starrer War are on an unprecedented high. The film has been granted a ‘UA’ certificate with no cuts at all. In fact Tiger Shroff feels this is a film for young fans of Hrithik and Tiger. “The action is not gruesome at all. It is fun in a video-games kind of way. Hrithik Sir and I have fights that are choreographed, like our dance numbers. It’s all done in a fun mood,” asserts Tiger.
Speaking for himself Tiger says he is fully aware of his responsibilities as an actor. “I know the largest chunk of my fan-following is among kids. I would never do anything that would send out a wrong signal to them. Nor would I ever use bad language or mouth double-meaning dialogues. I am sure Hrithik Sir too feels the same.”
The debate on star power and its responsible use in public spaces specially cinema, was triggered by Hollywood superstar Joaquin Pheonix’s Joker where he is seen taking to the gun and killing randomly for wrong done to him by an uncaring society.
Many Indian superstars like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan are saying no to negative roles at a time when the social order is in a state of volatile flux. Tiger Shroff is in two minds about playing Khalnaayak (Villain) in Sanjay Dutt’s remake of the Subhash Ghai film for the same reason.
The film is expected to fetch great returns at the box office. It opens in the UAE on Wednesday.
