According to a News18 report, the police was notified about the presence of two males roaming around in suicide bomber-like vest in the Vasai area. They were seen strolling around and buying cigarettes. After some efforts, the cops caught them but they were later identified as extras in a film with Hrithik and Tiger in the lead roles.
The India Today report further stated that the film's production unit had to produce papers to get the actors released. They were recognised as Balram Ginwala (23) and Arbaaz Khan (20). However, they were still booked under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code for creating panic in public.
Speaking about the film, the Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff starrer is being helmed by Siddharth Anand and also stars Vaani Kapoor. Earlier while speaking about sharing screen space with Hrithik in the film, Tiger said, "I am intimidated by him. I am facing my hero... I call myself gareebo ka Hrithik Roshan, so there is already a comparison there."
He further added, "It's an honour for me to stand in the same frame as him. We are yet to shoot the dance-off. It's too hot right now so we have postponed it. But I am both excited and jittery about it."
