Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff’s upcoming film, WAR, is being pitched as an action face-off between both. But apart from all that both these dancing sensations will also come together to show off their moves.
Director Siddharth Anand shared,
“Since the inception of the film, people were speculating there would be a huge dance anthem featuring two of the best dancers of our country — Hrithik and Tiger. This has been the biggest anticipation that automatically becomes a huge pressure for the people to deliver a cracking song that would become an anthem.”
This add-on big-budget Holi song: Jai Jai Shivshankar will see the duo matching their steps. The Guru-Chela Duo i.e. Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff sweated for three weeks together to nail their moves.
“Firstly, we had to get the track right — one that justifies them dancing on it together. Hrithik and Tiger have had great songs and hit numbers to their credit; since we’re bringing them together for the first time, we have all the more responsibility to deliver a track that becomes a blockbuster instantly,”
“I told Vishal and Shekhar (composer duo) that this is not just a song but responsibility. I think it’s blessings of God and Hrithik and Tiger’s fans that we have been able to create a track that’s truly an anthem. You have to hear it to understand it.”
He divulged that after they got the track with uptempo beats, they couldn’t have shot it in any lesser way. The music video that features over 500 dancers in the frame, was conceptualized by Bosco and Caesar for more than a month before it was pursued by the actors.
Siddharth completed his interview with information that both Hrithik and Tiger rehearsed for three weeks to make it a visual spectacle.
“This is a Holi song. What got me excited was its lyrics, ‘Jai jai Shivshankar, aaj mood hai bhayankar. When you see this song, you’ll get into a bhayankar mood to dance. You will just freak out and that is the killer part of it.”
