And Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff's War hits the century at the box office. The early estimates suggest that the action entertainer has raked in around Rs 23 crore and now stands with the grand total of Rs 100.30 crore. War is expected to gain momentum today and tomorrow and cross the Rs 150 crore mark in its extended opening weekend. It will be interesting to see how the film performs in the weekdays.
Apart from Hrithik Roshan's acting mettle, audience have also applauded the action skills of Tiger Shroff. "War" director Siddharth Anand said that there is no one better than Tiger in parkour in India and that they wanted to exploit his skills for the film. "There is no one better than Tiger in parkour in India and we wanted to exploit his outstanding skill and showcase it spectacularly in 'War'. The action sequences in 'War' have been designed to give audiences a maximum adrenaline rush in theatres and we wanted to use Tiger's parkour skills to its fullest to create a high-octane sequence," Anand said.
Parkour is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. It includes running, freerunning, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, plyometrics, rolling, quadrupedal movement and other movements as deemed most suitable for the situation. Tiger performed parkour over 100 houses shot in Matera in Southern Italy for an action sequence for the film, which also stars Hrithik Roshan.
"Matera, uniquely, has houses that have been built next to each other. These houses are separated by small bylanes. The proximity of these houses makes it an incredible spot to perform parkour and Tiger was thrilled with our location choice. He flew in 4 days before the shoot and practised three days straight jumping from one rooftop to another and got used to the terrain of Matera," the director said. The stunt was difficult, said Anand. Well, we can clearly see that the hard work has paid of and we are sure that it will set new benchmarks a the ticket windows. So, have you watched this film?
