Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff are among the top action stars in Bollywood currently. The two are all set to have a faceoff with each other in Yash Raj Films’ War.

The film is one of the most awaited films releasing this year given the sheer anticipation from audiences to see this visual extravaganza. The two will fight each other in a ruthless, merciless showdown that will surely leave audiences on the edge of their seats to find out who prevails.

YRF gave a hint of the brilliant action choreography that audiences will be treated with in the teaser of the film. The teaser went viral and became the nation’s talking point.

Four top action directors in the world Paul Jennings, Franz Spilhaus, Sea Young Oh and Parvez Shaikh are on board. Paul Jennings has worked on The Dark Knight, San Andreas, Jack Reacher and Game of Thrones while Franz Spilhaus has done the action for Safe House, Eye in the Sky and Death Race.  Sea Young Oh was part of Age of Ultrona & Snowpiercer and Parvez Shaikh did the action for Tiger Zinda Hai, Kesari and Mary Kom. The four, who are specialists in creating a different type of spectacle, have come together to design breath-taking and never seen before action stunts.

Hrithik and Tiger will be seen fighting each other on land, air, ocean and even air! Director Siddharth Anand has clearly left no stones unturned in making War the biggest action film India has ever produced. It looks like he took over a year to build and plan all the action sequences.

Siddharth confirms the news saying,

“It is true because I don’t think any movie in India has spent over a year to design action sequences. I wanted to create an action spectacle, a non-stop adrenaline pumping visual extravaganza for Indian audiences and for that we all had to give over a year to design these sequences. We had four action directors living and working in different parts of the world and it was important to jam with them on how to make War the biggest and one of its kind action film. We wanted audiences to feel that they had never seen this kind of action and we wanted them to be proud that an Indian film could do what a big budget Hollywood action film delivers.”

He adds,

“Infact, the biggest Hollywood action films have, at the most, 4 action sequences in the film, we on the other hand have 7 action set pieces! We had two of the biggest action superstars in our film and we wanted to deliver to the expectations of the people and create the grandest action film to date. The response to the teaser has validated our effort and we are hoping that audiences will give as much love to the film as well.”

The action entertainer will see Hrithik and Tiger push their bodies to the limit to pull off these death-defying acting stunts. They will be seen mercilessly fighting each other in 7 different countries and 15 world cities!
