When asked about it, Tiger said, "It's part and parcel. Not just Hrithik sir, every star faces that. Once in the limelight, you become an easy target. It was a very silly rumour. I know both of them very well, they are nothing like that. They are lovely human beings."
In an interview earlier, even Disha Patani rubbished the reports and declared it as "childish and irresponsible gossip" and called Hrithik a "dignified" person.
Talking about his upcoming project with Hrithik, the Baaghi 2 actor said it was too early to speculate whether Hrithik and he would have a dance-off in their untitled movie backed by Yash Raj Films.
"It has been my life long dream to work with him. He's everything for me. I look up to him as an actor, human being. I am his big fan. I'll get to learn a lot from him. We begin shooting from October," he added.
On a related note, Tiger will be seen next on screen in Student of the Year 2, which will be released next year.
