War movie Director Siddharth anand might have dropped the film if Tiger Shroff hadn’t done the film
In an Interview with PTI upcoming Bollywood film War director Siddharth anad said that it “would have been tough” for him to move ahead with the project if Tiger Shroff had said no to the film as there is “nobody, who could replace Tiger.”
Speaking about War cast, Siddharth Anand said: “The first choice was Hrithik because we share a great equation. Post Bang Bang!, I’ve been writing something for him. Fortunately for me, he loved the script. I knew if Hrithik is in the film, the protege can be no one else but Tiger,” reported PTI.
Added “If Tiger hadn’t done the film, it would have been be tough for me to make war. I may have just dropped the idea to rewrite something else. There is nobody, who could replace Tiger in the film.”
“During 2015-2016, I traveled a lot and was intrigued by the genre of spy thrillers and I picked up a lot of books of top novelists. The idea of the film came from there. It opened my imagination to conflicts, characterization, drama and plot points,”
The script has been written by Siddharth and Shridhar Raghavan, who has worked in films such as Dum Maaro Dum, Family, Bluffmaster! and Khakee.
Talkling about action sequences “It was important to identify key action sequences and bring in different action directors and make it their responsibility.
We brought in four action directors and gave them four set pieces. So they could push themselves and bring in their take. Which was also kind of competitive because they knew someone else is doing the other job. That worked out very well for the film.”
“In action, you’ve only that many things you can do. There’s a bike, car and plane chase. So the setting matters the most because you’ve seen all of this in films. So we set the bike chase in a mountain so that there’s a thrust for speed.”
War movie is directed by Siddharth Anand starring Hrithik Roshan Tiger Shroff & Vaani Kapoor in the lead role Produced by Aditya chopra releasing on 2nd October.
