WAR: ‘Thankfully, we were side by side and not facing each other,’ Tiger Shroff opens up on the first day with his mentor Hrithik Roshan

WAR is shattering all records at the Indian box office. Everyone who has seen the Tiger Shroff – Hrithik Roshan action drama is raving about the spectacular fight sequences and chemistry between the two hunks. In an EXCLUSIVE chat with BollywoodLife, Tiger Shroff said, “I was so nervous on the first day. I was shaking in my knees. Thankfully, we were side by side and not facing one another. Since we were not seeing each other directly, I could give the shot confidently.” We also told Tiger that Hrithik Roshan has spoken about how particular he was about getting everything right as he feels that the Baaghi actor is quite exceptional. “He is just doing natak. He is a very good actor. Whatever I have done or achieved is because I am inspired by him. I have to thank him for what I have achieved.”

Unlike his contemporaries, Tiger Shroff is the only one who has a market in a definite space. “I am blessed that people have accepted me as an action hero. There is so much competition so how does one stand out. The action hero tag has given me an identity. I am very thankful to the audience,” he says. Talking further about the experience of working with his idol, Hrithik Roshan, Tiger gushes, “For me there was no bigger high than when I would see my shots on the monitor and he did say something nice or give a feedback. That is my most precious memory and takeaway from WAR. Growing up, you idolise someone, then you get a chance to work with him and he appreciates you. There is no bigger high than that.”

When we asked Tiger Shroff about the comparisons to Saaho, another action extravaganza that released, he says that he did not get a chance to watch the film. He also told us that he would definitely like to do an action film with Prabhas Sir. As it is observed, many people love action stars of the West but have complaints with desi ones. Tiger Shroff’s acting skills even in action flicks have been under the scanner. Does that bother him? “It does. I mean what action heroes do, very few people can. It is not just about action but the emotions and expression behind the action. It is a loud form of expression. Doing that plus performing is not the easiest of tasks. I feel it is a misconception,” states the actor. He also reveals how the team of WAR started cheering as Hrithik Roshan and Tiger began shooting for the hit, Jai Jai Shiv Shankar. “We were so involved with the choreography that we did not realise that we were in the same frame,” he says. The film is made by Siddharth Anand of Salaam Namaste fame!

Kangana Ranaut on the Hrithik Roshan controversy: Luckily, I was not answerable to anyone

While Rangoon hits theaters next week, the film’s lead actress Kangana Ranaut is on a promotion spree along with co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. Expectedly, several of the statements she’s made while on her publicity rounds made headlines — be it on Hrithik Roshan, or her comments regarding nepotism while on Koffee With Karan.

Firstpost recently had a sit-down with Kangana for our latest episode of Gossip Guy, and boy did she have a lot to talk about with host Renil Abraham.

First off, Kangana laughed off the uproar over her nepotism remark on KWK, although she pointed out that what she had said was entirely true. “Of course I am going to say it to Karan (Johar)’s face, I believe that (it’s true),” Kangana told us, adding, “To his credit, even he (Karan) is laughing about it. We need to loosen up a bit and see the funnier side of things. We will be a great society if that happens.”

She was more serious on the subject of her fall-out with Hrithik Roshan, which dominated headlines in 2016. Kangana told us that not refraining from talking about it was a conscious decision she made. “If I kept it as a secret, it would have become bigger in everyone’s (minds),” she explained. “All my interviews in the past seven days have been about that. I have said whatever, in my capacity, I understand about the situation.

“The only thing you care about that point is your career. In a way, it directly affects your career,” Kangana said.

“This is something very personal, it is out in the open and it is completely damaging, it is ruining my hard work of 10 years. I am a great actress and I remain one… the media has been amazingly supportive, so have the people around,” she added.

As for whether or not she was concerned about being portrayed negatively, Kangana said “I was concerned, but at the same time I did not want to shut up. I did not want to take the easy way to get done with everything… Luckily I am not answerable to anyone — a husband or child, whom you care about. I wasn’t in any other relationship at that time. Your partner can put pressure on you to put an end (to such an issue). I was single and I did not have any emotional pressure, my parents were very supportive. I had to protect my career… did not know how to do it, so I just did what I did. Today, it seems like such a waste of time.”

Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut’s legal spat might have reached an official conclusion

March 2016 marked the beginning of one of the biggest controversies in Bollywood for the year.

Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan had slapped each other with legal notices through their respective attorneys, Rizwan Siddiquee and Deepesh Mehta.

After Kangana made a comment about a ‘silly ex’ of hers, Hrithik Firstpost slapped a defamation notice against her that seemed to indicate that (he believed) the comment was directed at him. The fight got murky, and allegations were thrown from both the parties.

As had reported earlier, the crux is that an email ID, from which Kangana claimed to have received messages from Hrithik, seem to indicate that they were in a relationship. Hrithik, on the other hand, said he never had an email account with that ID, and that it was an impostor who had been communicating with Kangana
all along.

He even tweeted that he would rather have an affair with the Pope. Ouch.

An officer connected with the Cyber Crime Cell has been quoted by various news outlets as saying the emails came from a US server, and in the absence of data from there, no user could be identified, which for Kangana’s team was a win-win situation.
