Hrithik V Tiger:
The big Bollywood release for this week, WAR, pitches superstars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff against each other. Directed by Sidharth Anand, the high octane action thriller is produced by Yash Raj Pictures and features Vaani Kapoor as the leading lady. Speaking about the predicted blockbuster Anand said: “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. Roshan and Shroff will be seen going at each other ferociously and mercilessly and audiences will want to see who outwits whom in this incredible fight. WAR is the only title that could have delivered on this big promise and justifies the level of an action spectacle that the film is trying to present to audiences globally.”
