Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer Yash Raj Films’ next action thriller has been a talk of point ever since it has been announced. The film that also stars Vaani Kapoor as the only leading lady, was marketed with a hashtag #HrithikVsTiger when it was announced. By the hashtag, it was anticipated that there would be a battle between Hrithik and Tiger and both will be seen fighting each other.

No Face-off between Hrithik and Tiger

However, if a report in DNA is to be believed, Hrithik and Tiger will not be pitted against each other as both play mentor and protégé respectively in the film. “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 daily reported today quoting a source.

“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 added.

Besides the high-octane action sequences, there will also be a lot of song-and-dance in the movie, which was expected as Hrithik and Tiger both are known as sought-after dancers of the Hindi film industry. “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 yet-untitled Sidharth Anand directorial is expected to have some never-seen-before action sequences which will be made under the cloak of utter secrecy. The film will go on floors in April 2018 with the plan to wrap it by October so that they can release the film on the announced date, 25th January 2019.
