Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff are working together for the first time in the Siddharth Anand directorial War. A teaser of the action film was released last week, which showed Hrithik and Tiger’s face off against each other, and a glimpse of actress Vaani Kapoor. The director has promised a massive showdown in the film. After the release of the teaser, he shared in a statement, “War is the only title that could have delivered on this big promise and justifies the level of an action spectacle that the film is trying to present to audiences globally.”
War’s shooting is currently taking place in Portugal and one of the action sequences will see Hrithik and Tiger in a superbike chase. According to reports, this sequence has been shot on Serra Da Estrela, which is one of the highest peaks of Portugal. Due to the high level of risk involved in this shoot, both actors were given the necessary training to ride the super bikes and have managed to pull off the sequence successfully. Siddharth Anand has said that the sequence would be visually stunning and at par with the action sequences of the big Hollywood films.
"When we have Hrithik taking on Tiger, the promise of the film to audiences becomes huge and we wanted to deliver the action experience for people to feel the adrenaline rush," Siddharth had shared earlier. Stunt directors Paul Jennings, Franz Spilhaus, SeaYoung Oh and Parvez Shaikh have been roped in for the film, which is being produced by Yash Raj Films. The makers will be disclosing all the big action moments strategically to the audience. The film is slated to hit the screens on 2nd October 2019 and will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages.
