Hrithik and Tiger recreate ‘Jai Jai Shivshankar’

The two dancing sensations shake a leg to give their spin to the Rajesh Khanna-hit number…

Easily two of the best dancers in the Indian film industry, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff had rehearsed for 3 weeks with each other to nail this Holi track that promises to become a dance anthem for the young. The big-budget Holi song, Jai Jai Shivshankar from the film War, featuring over 500 dancers, was conceptualised by Bosco and Caesar for more than a month.

Director Siddharth Anand, excited about bringing this combo for a dance number, says, “Since the inception of the film, people were speculating that there would be a huge dance anthem featuring two of the best dancers of our country, Hrithik and Tiger. While people were wowed that two of the biggest action heroes of India were combining for the first time, they were also equally excited to see them dance together in War.”

He adds, “Firstly, we had to get the track right, get the track that justifies them dancing on it together. Hrithik and Tiger have had very, very good songs and big hit songs to their credit. Now, we are bringing them together for the first time and so we have all the more responsibility to deliver a song that should become a blockbuster instantly. I told Vishal and Shekhar that this is not just a song, this is a responsibility. I think it’s the blessings of God and fans of the stars that we have been able to create a track which is truly an anthem.”

Shot on a lavish scale, ‘Jai Jai Shivshankar’ releases today. The film War, to release on October 2, is as exciting and promises to be the biggest action spectacle of the season. The high-octane action entertainer will see Hrithik and Tiger pitted against each other in a massive showdown.

War has been shot in 7 different countries and 15 world cities. Four action directors from across the world have been roped in to choreograph the biggest, never seen before action spectacle on screen. Produced by Yash Raj Films, War, releasing in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil, also stars Vaani Kapoor in a key role.
