There were a lot of conjectures around actor Jr NTR starring opposite actor Hrithik Roshan in War 2. However, with their fun conversation during NTR’s birthday, fans were sort of convinced that they are indeed coming together for War 2. Well, now Hrithik himself has confirmed his presence in the movie and we are hell excited for it.
During his conversation with Bollywood Bubble at IIFA 2023, he was asked about teaming up with Jr NTR and Fighter. He didn’t deny Taarak’s presence in War 2 but simply expressed his feeling by saying, “I’m very excited. I’m coming after Vikram Vedha with Fighter, very excited about that. Hope you like it as well. On update, Fighter is nearing completion and we are almost done with it. Yeah, fingers crossed.”
Here’s how Hrithik Roshan reacted
Earlier, on the RRR star’s birthday, Hrithik wished him by saying, “Happy Birthday @tarak9999! Wishing you a joyous day and an action packed year ahead. Awaiting you on the yuddhabhumi my friend. May your days be full of happiness and peace …until we meet… Puttina Roju Subhakankshalu Mitrama (sic)”.
In response, Taarak tweeted, “Thank you sir for your lovely wish! I’m going to soak in the day today… You should start counting down the days too… Hope you sleep well thinking about what awaits because I want you well rested at the yuddhabhoomi… see you soon! (sic)”.
Hrithik Roshan and Jr NTR will come together for the first time in War 2. This would be the latter’s Bollywood debut. The movie will have him play the antagonist while Hrithik to play the lead role. Moreover, Ayan Mukerji will take over the director’s seat instead of Siddharth Anand. However, more details on the same it yet to be revealed. But for now, we are quite happy with them coming together in one frame.
