With the addition of RRR star Jr NTR, Yash Raj Films’ 2019 smash hit War has just grown even more. Taran Adarsh, a trade analyst, announced today that Jr. NTR will accompany Hrithik in War 2.
Jr. NTR enters the YRF spy world to star in WAR 2
The Telugu superstar’s inclusion in the Hrithik Roshan-led cast of War 2 was confirmed today.
Taran Adarsh, movie critic, and trade analyst tweeted the following: “It’s an official fact now. War 2 stars Hrithik-Jr NTR. YRF drags off a casting revolution.

Although no information about Jr. NTR’s character has been made public, it is expected that Hrithik will reprise his role as super spy Kabir.
Reactions from fans to this update
In a tweet expressing excitement, a fan wrote, “#JrNTR will going to redeem #Bollywood elegance made an excellent choice to cast Super Star from south…without south assistance, it is unthinkable for #Bollywood to produce blockbusters at the box office.”

Other official sources also verified this information
According to the news agency ANI, a source said, “In War 2, Jr NTR faces off against Hrithik Roshan. There will be epic action! Their intellectual duel and the brutal showdown will undoubtedly be a memorable action spectacle to watch on the big screen. The movie “War” is currently truly pan-Indian. This decision by Aditya Chopra increases War 2’s potential at the box office and gives it the broadest audience appeal of any Hindi film. With the addition of their beloved megastar, South India should come alive and empathize more with the movie.”
The source continued, “Jr. NTR is one of the most renowned and well-liked icons in South India. He is rumored to be very picky when it comes to his movie choices, so if he has given the movie the thumbs up, it means that War 2 is surpassing the first movie in terms of both scale and plot. A memorable fight will feature Jr. NTR vs. Hrithik Roshan! Set a reminder to see this first-day, first-show showdown! By including Jr. NTR, Aditya Chopra was able to bring War 2’s scale to a whole new level, which the audience found to be incredibly appealing.”
The director of War 2 is Ayan Mukerji
Siddharth Anand, who previously directed the popular Pathaan, has reportedly been replaced in charge of War 2. Ayan Mukerji, the creator of movies like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Brahmastra, will now be the film’s director.
Fans, however, are not too optimistic about this development. Even on social media, many people have expressed their dissatisfaction.
The spy universe of YRF
Following Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, War, Pathaan, and Tiger 3, War 2 will be the sixth movie in the YRF spy universe.
The Yash Raj Spy Universe, which also includes the Salman Khan films Pathaan and Tiger, will be the setting for War 2. In Pathaan, Salman appeared as Tiger in a crossover cameo, and although Hrithik’s Kabir did not appear, the character was alluded to in dialogue.
One of the big hits of 2019 was the Siddharth Anand-directed film War, which also starred Tiger Shroff.
