Talking about his transformation in the film, Hrithik Roshan earlier said, “The biggest war of life has clearly been completing the film ‘War’. After ‘Super 30’, the fat content of my body was too much. My body had become lazy and I was given only 2 months to get in shape and it wasn’t enough. I started this film on a bit of a backfoot because my body was not ready.” He further added, “My work in this film was 24 hours. I was either visualizing, or I was doing clothes, or I was doing my dialogues, or I was icing my knee, or I had to go see my doctor, or I was working out in the gym or physio, so I was doing everything for the film throughout the day.”
“War is one of the most visually stunning films of our times and we have shot Hrithik and Tiger chasing and hunting against each other in seven different countries. We had to travel to Australia to shoot one of the key moments in the film,” Anand said in a statement. One of chase sequence is shot in the famous Bondi Beach in Australia for a crucial plot.
“Australia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and Bondi Beach is the most picturesque beach that I have ever come across in my life. Since the scene needed to be visually striking, we locked on Bondi Beach for the film. The scene is a big moment in the film and we won’t be able to disclose much about it currently,” he added.
Anyway, have you watched the film?
