The incident, however, has revealed that the Yash Raj film may not be just a dance movie as believed earlier.

An alarm about the sighting of terror suspects turned out to be a dud when police discovered they were just extras from a unit shooting for Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's upcoming film directed by Siddharth Anand.
According to a report on the website Indiatoday.com, police arrived on the sets of the film, which is as yet untitled, in Vasai in Palghar district near Mumbai after some locals reported having seen two men in 'suspicious' getup. The men were spotted when they stepped out to buy some cigarettes.
Police discovered it was a false alarm and the men were simply junior artistes from the sets of the Yash Raj Films production. The film's production team had the documents needed to prove the identities of the two actors, identified as Balram Ginwala and Arbaaz Khan.
However, police still booked the two men and the unit in-charge under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code for allegedly causing panic and disrupting the peace.
Meanwhile, the incident has revealed that the Yash Raj film, the first one Hrithik and Shroff are doing together, is not just a dance film where the two stars pit their skills against each other. The film also stars actress Vaani Kapoor.
Update: No arrests were made in the matter and the Mumbai police had nothing to do with the case as reported earlier.
