"Hrithik was quite visibly happy to see Tiger's performance. He even shared some tips which can help him grow successful as an actor. The two had a long talk after the film was over," says a source close to Tiger. They were accompanied by director Sabbir Khan and a couple of close acquaintances.
"Tiger cleared his schedule and kept aside all his prior commitments to be with Hrithik during the private screening of Heropanti. He tried his best to keep this development from the media," adds the source.
That Tiger looks up to Hrithik was apparent in a recent interview, where he told us, "I respect Hrithik Roshan a lot. I think he’s a complete actor and dancer. Just his presence changes everything. He’s a true superstar and I see no weakness in him. I wish to imbibe his qualities in my professional life too."
So, he was quite overwhelmed to be praised by an actor who is known to be a great dancer.
When contacted, Tiger confirms the development and says, "Yes, Hrithik sir watched the film. I have always been a huge fan of his. I was very nervous and, at the same time, excited about this screening.
