Tiger Shroff has set a new benchmark as an action superstar in all the adrenaline-pumping action films that he has done so far. And looks like in War, he has outdone himself and will wow audiences with his entry! Sources inform us that Tiger, who is locked in a ferocious showdown with Hrithik Roshan in the film, has shot the longest ever action entry sequence in the history of Bollywood! What makes this even more awesome is that he shot this sequence in a single shot!
Director Siddharth Anand reveals, “Tiger is the best action hero in the country when it comes to hand to hand combat. He has entertained audiences with his brilliant skills and we wanted to show people something so raw that it will blow their minds. So we came up with an idea that will stun audiences with his entry sequence!”
He adds, “It is a 2.30 min long, jaw-dropping, intense hand to hand combat sequence that has been shot in one shot by Tiger. The entire action sequence was shot in one shot without any cuts. We flew down the best hand to hand action choreographer in the world, Sea Young Oh (Age of Ultron, Snowpiercer), to design this sequence for Tiger. Tiger will be seen on a rampage as he will take down an army of people, with his bare hands. It’s going to be an adrenaline-pumping entry for Tiger and we hope the audiences will love it.”
“It is not easy to do an intense combat scene like this in one shot and Tiger fully committed himself into it. He prepped and practiced and rehearsed, again and again, to ensure that he was ready to do it in one shot. And on the day of the shoot, he was flawless. Only Tiger could have executed this complex action choreography with such precision.”
In WAR, Hrithik and Tiger will be seen waging a war against each other and it seems like the makers have pulled all stops to make this massive showdown a never seen before action spectacle. Touted as the biggest action entertainer of the year, War has been produced by Yash Raj Films. The high-octane film that also stars Vaani Kapoor opposite Hrithik Roshan, is set to release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil on Gandhi Jayanti, October 2nd.
