Jr NTR to Play Antagonist in War 2 Opposite Hrithik Roshan, Says Report




The highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 spy thriller, War, will reportedly feature Telugu superstar Jr NTR as the antagonist opposite Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan. The film, directed by Ayan Mukerji, is set to expand the Yash Raj Films’ spy universe and mark Jr NTR’s Bollywood debut.

Rumours are rife that Jr NTR, the Telugu superstar, has been signed to star in the sequel to the 2019 Bollywood spy thriller, War. The film, which is tentatively titled War 2, will see Jr NTR go head-to-head with Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan. The news comes after the immense success of Jr NTR’s latest film, RRR, which has established him as a force to be reckoned with in Indian cinema.

According to sources, Jr NTR has been roped in to play the antagonist in War 2, which is being directed by Ayan Mukerji. An official confirmation is yet to be made by either the actor or the production house, Yash Raj Films (YRF). However, reports suggest that the move to cast Jr NTR in the film is a strategic one, as it will widen the film’s audience appeal and box office potential.

The Spy Universe of Yash Raj Films


YRF has been building a spy universe with its films since 2012, when it released Ek Tha Tiger, starring Salman Khan. The film was a huge commercial success and led to a sequel, Tiger Zinda Hai, in 2017. YRF continued its spy universe with the 2019 film War, which starred Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, which released in 2023, is the latest addition to this universe. The spy universe will further expand with the release of the next film in the Tiger series and War 2.

Jr NTR’s Upcoming Projects

While fans eagerly await an official confirmation about Jr NTR’s casting in War 2, the actor is currently gearing up for his upcoming Telugu project with director Koratala Siva. The film, which is tentatively titled NTR 30, marks the Telugu debut of Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor. The project was officially launched two weeks ago with a pooja ceremony, which was presided over by filmmaker SS Rajamouli.

Jr NTR and Koratala Siva previously collaborated on the 2016 film Janatha Garage, which was a critical and commercial success. Their upcoming project is highly anticipated by fans, and expectations are high for the film, which is set to release later this year. The film’s music will be composed by Anirudh Ravichander, who is known for his work in Tamil and Telugu cinema.

The news of Jr NTR’s potential casting in War 2 has created a buzz among fans of Indian cinema, who are excited to see the Telugu superstar share screen space with Hrithik Roshan. YRF’s spy universe has been expanding steadily, and the addition of Jr NTR to War 2 is a smart move that will undoubtedly widen the film’s appeal. Meanwhile, Jr NTR’s upcoming Telugu project with Koratala Siva is also highly anticipated, and fans are eagerly awaiting more details about the film.
