Far from being at each other's throats, Sooraj and Tiger have become close friends and allies, so much so that Sooraj has borrowed Tiger's gym trainer to help get the right body tone for his action sequences.
Says Sooraj, "Tiger is fantastic with martial arts and other forms of physical combat. I can't wait to see his stunts in Heropanti. We sometimes train and work-out together. And I've trained for some of my stunts with Tiger's trainer Zile Mawai Sir. It's all very warm between us. We are nowhere close to being rivals. Although we are very different individuals we get along very well. Both of us are basically loners."
Says Sooraj, "I don't think that matters between us. If Tiger had made his debut with his dad's film he would have been endlessly compared with his dad."
Says Tiger, "Yes I am friends with Sooraj. In fact I know both Sooraj and Aathiya very well. I am sure they will do a fab job in Hero."
