They are both known for their amazing dance and superb action scenes. Any guesses who? Well, its none other than Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The action-dancing stars will be collaborating for the first time onscreen in Yash Raj Film’s WAR.
Now we have learnt that there will be a series of massive showdowns between the two. These huge action spectacles will be choreographed by 4 big action directors from across the globe. Yes, that’s right not 1 or 2 but 4!
Talking about it director Siddharth Anand said:
“When we have Hrithik taking on Tiger, the promise of the film to audiences become huge and we wanted to deliver the action experience for people to feel the adrenaline rush. We have four of the top action directors from different parts of the world like Paul Jennings, Franz Spilhaus, SeaYoung Oh and Parvez Shaikh – all specialists in creating a different type of spectacle, choreographing breath-taking, never seen before action stunts. Hrithik and Tiger will be seen fighting each other on land, ocean, ice and even air! We will be disclosing all these big action moments strategically to audiences.”
The four action directors have done notable works. Paul Jennings has worked in big Hollywood action spectacles like The Dark Knight, San Andreas, Jack Reacher and Game of Thrones. SeaYoung Oh is known for designing brilliant hand to hand combat sequences and has worked in films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pokemon XY and others. Franz Spilhaus has designed the action sequences in films like Safe House, Eye in the Sky, Death Race, and more. Parvez Shaikh has designed action in big-ticket Bollywood films like Tiger Zinda Hai, Junglee, Kesari, Mary Kom, among others.
WAR is set to be a visual spectacle for quintessential action cinema lovers as Hrithik and Tiger fight each other relentlessly to try and beat each other.
