Hrithik Roshan has kick-started with the shooting of War 2 after recovering from a back injury. Co-starring Jr NTR, the film is being bankrolled by Yash Raj Films and they have cracked the new format of shooting the upcoming sequel, making optimum utilisation of technology. The movie went on the floors last year in November but without the lead actors. The outdoor shoot was carried out with body doubles and the makers then swapped the faces using VFX. This technique allows the actors to complete the shooting in fewer days and cuts down the budget.

Now, as Hrithik has joined the filming, he has allotted around 60 days for the movie, eyeing to wrap his portion by June.
