War, helmed by Siddharth Anand, released on 2nd October and has gone on to become a smashing blockbuster within a few days of its release. The film stars Tiger Shroff as an Indian agent Khalid who is on a mission to kill his former mentor and soldier Kabir (Hrithik Roshan). The film’s massive success is being attributed to the onscreen chemistry of the two stars. Speaking about the success of the film and his chemistry with Hrithik, Tiger Shroff said, “"The kind of feedback I'm getting from the people, I feel I haven't had this kind of chemistry with my past heroines also. And, I still can't believe that I got to do my biggest film with my biggest hero. I couldn't ask for more."
Meanwhile, Hrithik has said Tiger is his hero and he thinks he has found his “onscreen partner” and “dance partner” in the young actor.
Tiger, who made his debut with 2014 action comedy Heropanti, also spoke about portraying the role of Kabir. He said the character was “a little uncomfortable” for him and he tried to “portray it very differently.” However, the actor -- who has previously starred in the highly successful Baghi franchise -- also said he enjoys the action genre very much and feels it has “given a sense of identity” to him. He revealed all his inspiration comes from big action stars, such as Jackie Chan and Hrithink Roshan. On being seen as an action hero, especially since the release of War, he added, "There's so much competition in this industry and my peers are doing such amazing work, so how does one stand out? Therefore, I want to create an identity for myself and if people identify me as an action hero then I think it's more than enough for me."
