War is the story of an officer played by Hrithik Roshan, gone rogue for reasons unknown and his protege (Tiger Shroff) has been asked to hunt him down. How this battle between a protege and his master culminates will make for an exciting watch.
Tiger Shroff is thrilled about joining forces with his idol Hrithik Roshan in War. He said in a recent interview that War is different for him even though it is an action movie.
Tiger Shroff talking about War said, "There are very different styles of action, location and get-up. It's more on the lines of Mission Impossible. It's like Ethan Hunt versus James Bond and Superman vs Batman... on this battlefield. We are fighting in air, on land. It is a visual spectacle. It is a great action entertainer."
Tiger Shroff further added, "I am both nervous and excited. I am very excited because I got the opportunity to work with my hero. It is a huge opportunity for me. I am working with Yash Raj Films for the first time, and of course my director Siddharth Anand... he is fantastic. I am looking forward to working with him again in 'Rambo'."

Talking about Hrithik, Tiger said: "It was amazing -- such an easy experience. He is such a good dancer, so he is equally good in action. Action is all about timing. Whenever we fought each other, our (action) sequences were complementing so well."
Hrithik Roshan had gained weight to play Patna-based Super 30 programme founder Anand Kumar in Super 30. Working with actor and his fan Tiger Shroff inspired Hrithik to lose weight.
Hrithik Roshan said, "After I did 'Super 30', I had gained a lot of weight. My waist size was around 38 inches. Working with Tiger inspired me to lose weight and make it 30 again,"
Hrithik Roshan opened up about working with Tiger while promoting the film on the set of The Kapil Sharma Show. During the show, Kapil tried to enquire about Hritik signing for War because Tiger was doing the film. Hritik said: "This wasn't the major condition but I told the makers that if Tiger is doing the film, I will definitely do the film."
