Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s action spectacle `War’ is touted to be one of the biggest Bollywood films releasing this year, given the scale of the visual extravaganza. Hrithik and Tiger, known for their action craft, will be seen battling each other in a ruthless, merciless showdown.
Yash Raj films has now revealed the minds behind the action sequences. Four of the top action directors of the world Paul Jennings (The Dark Knight, San Andreas, Jack Reacher and Game of Thrones), Franz Spilhaus (Safe House, Eye in the Sky, Death Race), Sea Young Oh (Age of Ultron, Snowpiercer) and Parvez Shaikh (Tiger Zinda Hai, Kesari, Mary Kom) – all specialists in creating a different type of spectacle, have come together to design breath-taking, never seen before action stunts. Hrithik and Tiger will be seen fighting each other on land, air, ocean and even air !
Siddharth says, “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, “In fact, 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 is shot in seven different countries and 15 cities. The film stars Vaani Kapoor opposite Hrithik Roshan and will release on 2 October.
