Aditya Chopra’s YRF spy universe is expanding its reach with a Pan India casting decision. The latest addition to the franchise is none other than the renowned Jr NTR, who rose to fame with RRR. This time, Jr NTR is set to join forces with Hrithik Roshan in War 2. While the sequel to the action-packed blockbuster has been in the pipeline for some time, Aditya Chopra has decided to tap into the Southern market by roping in top-notch talent from the film industry to enhance the film’s Pan India appeal.
According to recent reports, a trade source was quoted saying, “Yes, it’s absolutely correct information. NTR Jr. is locking horns with Hrithik Roshan in War 2, and it’s going to be an epic action adventure. Their battle of wits and the fierce showdown will be an action spectacle worth experiencing on the big screen. With top superstars from the Northern and Southern industry, War 2 is now a true-blue Pan India film. Aditya Chopra’s move not only broadens the film’s audience appeal but also increases the film’s box office potential. The presence of Jr NTR in the film is expected to create a buzz in the Southern market, connecting with the audience on an even bigger level.”
As per sources, Jr NTR is on the verge of giving his nod to the film, but the details of his role remain a mystery.
Moving on to the franchise, YRF’s recent addition was Pathaan, and with Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai, the audience is now eagerly anticipating the release of Tiger 3, featuring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, with Emraan Hashmi as the antagonist. War 2 is expected to take off from where Tiger 3 has ended, promising to be an adrenaline-pumping adventure for fans across India.
