Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s War said to be the first film to be shot in the Arctic circle
A car action sequence has been shot in Finland, which falls under the circle.
While Hollywood has made films with the Arctic circle as their backdrop, most of such films were shot in Iceland. But Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's upcoming film War has claimed the title to be the first film ever to be shot in the Arctic circle. As seen in the trailer of the film which released recently, a car action sequence is shot in Finland which falls under the circle.
“We were very clear from the start that we want to give Indian audiences action that they have never seen before. Our film has a huge car sequence that sees Hrithik and Tiger perform an adrenaline-pumping action stunt that has been entirely shot on ice. We shot this in Finland which is in the Arctic circle and we were informed by our production team that we were the first-ever film in the world to shoot an action sequence of this scale in the Arctic. Hrithik and Tiger have pushed themselves from the word go for our film to pull off some death-defying stunts. This sequence was incredibly risky but visually so stunning that we went for it,” reveals director Siddharth Anand.
Action director Paul Jennings, who has worked on films such as The Dark Knight, San Andreas, Jack Reacher as well as Game of Thrones has supervised the action sequences of this film. Produced by Yash Raj Films, War, also starring Vaani Kapoor, is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on October 2 on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.
