All the fans of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff have been longing to see the two Bollywood hunks flexing their muscles for a long time now. And it seems the makers of War have fulfilled their desire and more in upcoming actioner War from Yash Raj Films banner.
The trailer of much-anticipated film War was released amid a lot of buzz on Tuesday. And much like its title, the film is indeed a war between Hrithik and Tiger. And those who are wondering how these two men, known as probably the best action stars and dancers in the industry right now, will fare when pit against each other, the trailer of War will satiate their curiosity, at least until the film releases on October 2.
War is high on action, a lot of it! It is sleek and stylish, and from what could be understood from its trailer, it is the story about two agents – Hrithik’s Kabir and Tiger’s Khalid who is Kabir’s former student. But the catch is, Kabir has gone rouge and his junior Khalid is assigned to stop him, giving us a thrilling showdown of sorts. The trailer is also loaded with some heavy-duty dialogues, building on the strength of the two characters.
The USP of War is its jaw-dropping action and death-defying stunts. Some of it might remind us of Mission Impossible Fallout, but such an actioner from the YRF camp will surely be a crowd puller.

The film marks Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s first collaboration. A self-confessed Hrithik fan, Tiger has been all praise for his mentor ever since the film went on floors. Director Siddharth Anand had earlier said in a statement, “When you bring two of the biggest and the best action superstars of India in one film and pit them against each other, you need a title that justifies the promise of a massive showdown. Hrithik and Tiger will be seen going at each other ferociously and mercilessly and audiences will want to see who outwits whom in this incredible fight.”
War has been shot in 7 countries and 15 cities across the world. The makers have also roped in four action directors to choreograph its stunts. These include 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).
War also stars Vaani Kapoor and Ashutosh Rana. Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
