Hrithik-Tiger showdown in YRF’s War sends Twitter in a tizzy
Move aside, Edwin Starr and his anti-war stance as he sang in the 1970s classic: “War Huh, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing”. This ‘War’ had Twitter agog with excitement.
YRF has released the teaser of its upcoming mega flick, ‘War’, that will see two of the biggest action superstars of our generation, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, in a massive showdown against each other.

The production house again innovated in marketing as it simply dropped the much-awaited teaser without any pre-promotion for maximum surprise and impact.
Speaking on the movie’s title, Siddharth Anand, director of ‘War’, 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. Hrithik and Tiger 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.”
The teaser has gained 15,250,981 views so far on YouTube and counting. Twitter couldn’t hold its excitement on seeing the two hunks of Bollywood together on the big screen for the first time. Both Hrithik and Tiger are known for their action and dancing skills.

Most of the comments were reserved for Hrithik Roshan, who’s film ‘Super 30’ release last week where the actor is seen in a deglamourised role. The inevitable comparison of his look in ‘War’ and ‘Super 30’ were compared by many to hilarious effect.
The two stars of the film also took to jabbing each other on Twitter. To Tiger’s comment, “Your moves may be a little rusty, let me show you how it’s done”, Hrithik retorted, “You’re just starting out in a world I’ve mastered”.
The teaser gives us a glimpse of what’s in store for the viewers – death-defying action stunts as Hrithik and Tiger try to beat each other. The fast-paced action sequences reminded twitterattis about some Hollywood hits like ‘Mission Impossible’ series, ‘Fast and Furious’, ‘Bourne Ultimatum’ and more.
