Tiger Shroff to play Hrithik’s protege in YRF’s next

Tiger and Hrithik
Recently, Yash Raj Films announced that they were casting Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff for an action film together. While fans were ecstatic about the news there were also rumours that the two stars were to be pitted against one another. But apparently, unlike the famous ‘Dhoom’ franchise which has one A-list actor pitted against another top actor, this one will see the two actors as mentor and protege.

An insider close to the film, stated, “Hrithik and Tiger are not clashing against each other in the film. In fact, the two will be uniting to form a formidable duo. Hrithik plays Tiger’s mentor in the film, who guides him. The whole film will revolve around their sweet guru-shishya bond and together they take on the baddie.”

The source further added, “People expected it to be a face-off between Tiger and Hrithik, but there will be a third actor playing the villain. The team is finalising another actor for that role now. ” The source also stated, “There will also be a few out-and-out dance numbers with both of them showing off their dancing skills. That is being planned as one of the highlights of the film.” The film also stars Vaani Kapoor in the lead and is set to release in January 2019.
