Hrithik Roshan preps for War 2

Hrithik is all geared up to reprise his character of Agent Kabir in the Yash Raj Films franchise - War 2. To deliver a stylised action scene, Hrithik has been undergoing martial arts training. He will be seen in hand-to-hand combat sequences along with a thrilling Katana sword fight sequence. In addition to this, the actor has undergone an intense physical transformation to mould himself in Kabir's silhouette. “A huge set was constructed, along the lines of a 300-year-old heritage monastery on a hilltop, by art designer Rajat Poddarr and his team," a source told the portal.

The second instalment of the spy drama promises an edgier premise under the direction of Ayan Mukerji. The film marks the Bollywood debut of Jr NTR, who is the antagonist in the action thriller. War 2 is slated to hit theatres on August 14, a day ahead of Independence Day.
