After the massive success of aerial actioner Fighter, Hrithik Roshan is all geared up for his next release, War 2. ETimes has learned that the actor is all set to start shooting for the highly-awaited sequel to War in the second week of February.
A source was quoted in these reports confirmed these details adding, “Ayan Mukerji has already captured overseas location plates approximately two months ago. Currently, a set is under construction in the city in preparation for Hrithik’s first shooting schedule”.
The original War, released in 2019 and directed by Siddharth Anand, emerged as a box-office sensation. For the sequel, director Siddharth has handed over the reins to Ayan Mukerji.
Reports suggest that South superstar Jr NTR will play the antagonist opposite Hrithik in War 2, with Hrithik reprising his role as the super-spy. Notably, this film is not just the next instalment in the YRF spy universe but is rumoured to have a direct connection with Salman Khan’s Tiger 3 and Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan.
It is speculated that War 2 will set the stage for the much-anticipated Tiger vs Pathaan, announced before the sequel.
