The buzz surrounding War 2 reached new heights with the surprising addition of South Indian actor Jr. NTR to the cast alongside Hrithik Roshan. The original film, War, featuring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, was a massive success, and expectations for its sequel soared with this new casting announcement.
Contrary to expectations of Siddharth Anand helming the project, Ayan Mukerji of “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” and “Brahmastra” fame will be directing this action-packed thriller. Yash Raj Films, the production house behind War 2, unveiled the release date for this mega multi-starrer—slated to hit theaters on 14th August 2025.
Interestingly, the second day of the film coincides with a national holiday, setting the stage for a potential unprecedented box office collection of 100 crores nett in a single day—an unprecedented feat in Hindi cinema. The combination of Bollywood and Tollywood heavyweights in War 2 has fans anticipating record-breaking achievements.
This installment marks the sixth film in the YRF Spy Universe, following the success of movies like Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, War, Pathaan, and Tiger 3. Jr. NTR and Hrithik Roshan are set to commence work on this highly anticipated project soon. The small glimpse of War 2 revealed at the end of Tiger 3 has already ignited excitement among audiences.A
