Talk about a case of mistaken identity! On Monday, the Mumbai Police arrested two 'suspected terrorists' in Palghar district but they turned out to be junior artists working in Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff 's upcoming film. 

The Police were notified by the locals that two men were roaming around the Vasai area wearing suicide-bomber-like vest. They were seen strolling around and buying cigarettes. The security guard of a bank in Palghar informed the police about the two. 

With the help of CCTV footage, the police stopped a bus that the two had boarded and arrested them. They later found out that the bus was headed for a movie shoot and the suspects were extras on Hrithik and Tiger's forthcoming action film. The two men were identified as Balram Ginwala (23) and Arbaaz Khan (20). The film’s production unit had to produce papers to get the actors released.

However, the police booked the two under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code for creating panic in public.

The movie's production unit in-charge has also been booked by the police besides the two actors. Police also felicitated the security guard for his alertness.

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff are working together in Siddharth Anand's yet to be titled film.
