Rana disclosed that some of the shootss of Waar 2 will be filmed in London and said that he will offer the director’s seat to someone else for aerial and underwater scenes. “I might shoot the ground sequences, but someone else will shoot the aerial and underwater scenes, as filming such parts is a completely different skill altogether,” said Rana.
“The film will be shot in UK, Russia, Yugoslavia, Turkey, Canada and US,” Rana disclosed in a report earlier this year.
The huge success of Waar earned good money to the filmmakers, which ended up in a financial disputes between Bilal Lashari and Hassan Waqas Rana. Now, Rana has decided to produce and direct the movie himself. Reports are also suggesting that he has done the script as well.
Waar 2 trailer is expected to release at the end of this year with another thriller movie Yalghaar by Hassan Waqas Rana.
