"I personally wanted to come here as I worship Lord Shiva. I wanted to seek his blessings before the release of my film. Also I heard it is the oldest holiest city in the world so I really wanted to visit it," Tiger told reporters from Varanasi.
"I am a very spiritual person and so I just wanted to feel the holy city. This is my first visit to Varanasi and I loved it," he added.
'Heropanti', produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, will release on May 23.
The actor said that the Sabbir Khan-directed film will give the viewers an inspiring food for thought and at the same time they will get to enjoy a fresh chemistry between him and Kriti.
"It is a love story. At the undercurrent of this there is a very strong social message which we are trying to give. It has got a different kind of action. Other than me there are 23 other newcomers in the film... it has a very fresh flavour. There is a new chemistry between me and Kriti. So, I hope the audience likes it," the actor added.
When asked how he is preparing for his Bollywood debut, Tiger said he was feeling a bit of everything.
"There is a blast of so many feelings in me. I am nervous, excited and happy. You should have asked me what I am not feeling?," he said.
