Tiger Shroff who is currently enjoying the success of his recent film 'Student of the Year 2' called himself 'Gareebo Ka Hrithik Roshan' in an interview with a national daily.

Tiger Shroff whose next film is with Hrithik Roshan spoke about how he considers Roshan his idol and is excited to shoot the dance-off which is a part of the film. He said: "I am intimidated by him. My next film is my biggest challenge. I am facing my hero… I call myself gareebo ka Hrithik Roshan, so there is already a comparison there (smiles). 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."

Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff has always expressed his affection for senior star Hrithik Roshan and called him an idol and a mentor. From their love for dance to dressing style, the duo has a lot in common. Recently, as Tiger Shroff's new film 'Students of the Year 2' released on Friday, May 10, Hrithik Roshan took to Twitter to extend best wishes to him. 

In a recent Twitter post, Hrithik wrote, "My dear @iTIGERSHROFF, when I see your work, it makes me work harder. I love you and I wish u the best! Good luck team #StudentOfTheYear"

Coming back to Tiger's recent release, Trade analyst and Film critic Taran Adarsh wrote on his Twitter handle: "#StudentOfTheYear2 shows ordinary trending... Didn’t decline much on Tue [vis-à-vis Mon], but what’s surprising is that it hasn’t crossed ₹ 50 cr yet, even after 5 days... Fri 12.06 cr, Sat 14.02 cr, Sun 12.75 cr, Mon 5.52 cr, Tue 5.02 cr. Total: ₹ 49.37 cr. India biz. #SOTY2" [sic]

The film opened to mixed reviews. 'Student of the Year 2' is Tiger's second biggest opener after 'Baaghi 2'.

The film is the sequel to the 2012 hit 'Student of the Year', which marked the Bollywood debut of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra.
