Bollywood stars always have a role model in the industry, whomthey look up to for their acting, dancing or professional abilities. For action star Tiger Shroff, this person was not his daddy and veteran actor Jackie Shroff. Instead, he draws a great amount of inspiration from the work and over two-decade-long experience of superstar Hrithik Roshan. Last month, Tiger called himself “ghareebo (poor) ka Hrithik Roshan” while sharing his thoughts on how he’s going to face his idol in their upcoming yet-to-be-titled project together. And he had no qualms in sharing how over the moon he is to work with the ‘Krrish’ actor!
Taking to social media, Tiger wrote, “Hrithik sir and I are almost done with filming and it’s a pleasure to work with him. Every day is a challenge with Hrithik sir as he is so perfect in every shot he gives. The attention to detail is amazing.” He added, “He questions everything in a scene, then you start feeling incomplete about yourself. ‘Why am I not questioning? Why is my process different? How come he is pointing out so many things?’ I guess that’s his way of working, and at the end of the day, the end result looks amazing, whatever he does.”
The project, directed by Siddharth Anand, is hyped as an action thriller and will feature a dance-off between the two actors. While the makers have not finalised the film’s titled yet, internet reports suggest the team has agreed on ‘Fighters’ as the name. However, rubbishing the news, Tiger stated, "I know time is ticking away and we can’t go around talking about our film without giving it a name. It would look very odd to keep referring to the film without giving it a name. We are trying to figure out a name and we should, no, we must, have one soon."The 29-year-old said that working with Hrithik is surely a dream come true. "It brings me face-to-face with my idol Hrithik sir. I’ve idolised him and tried to follow in his footsteps from the time I started preparing for a career in films. And to now share the screen with him is a dream come true. I get to learn so much from him. Just being around him is a blessing for me," he concluded.
