  • Hrithik Roshan will appear in Garena Free Fire as character Jai.
  • Jai has a unique skill called ‘Furious Reload'.

Yes, you read that right. Hrithik Roshan, the Bollywood superstar who has starred in numerous blockbuster hits such as Krrish, Bang Bang! and Dhoom 2 will be immortalized in Free Fire as a character from New Delhi called Jai. Free Fire’s OB23-24 update is rolling out soon and while it will come with loads of new features, it will also include a new character according to some leaks. It seems that the two potential characters are Lucas and Jai, and Jai looks awfully similar to Hrithik Roshan. 

Earlier this month, Free Fire announced their plans for their international esports scene where a slew of measures are being implemented for the game’s competitive circuit. Garena had also announced major plans for their anniversary date. In the former, India was among the countries mentioned that will be participating in the Asia tournament. Now, it seems that the game is doubling down on their India oriented content by partnering with Hrithik Roshan for a character.

This won’t be the first time a person from reality will be making their way into the Free Fire world. We’ve had DJ Alok and Jota already making their presence known in the game. Hrithik Roshan’s character, as far as we know according to the leaks, is named Jai. This is probably derived from the movies Kites and Bang Bang! where his name has been Jai as well. It is also interesting to note that Bang Bang!, a movie that was adapted from Tom Cruise’s Knight and Day, was an action film that saw Hrithik Roshan play a military man.

Jai's Abilities

In the game, Jai has a unique skill called ‘Furious Reload’. This special skill allows Jai to reload his ammo mag automatically once the weapon is out of bullets. More reveals also show that this special skill can work only with certain weapons such as Shotguns, ARs, SMGs, Pistols, and SRs. This makes Jai the perfect character for you to consider close encounters with opponents with guns such as SMGs as you will be able to reload faster and attack swiftly.

When will Jai come to Free Fire?

While the new Jai character reportedly won’t come out with the Free Fire OB23 update, Indian players and fans looking forward to have their dose of Hrithik Roshan in Free Fire might have to wait till OB24. This happens to be the case because as we know from Twitter updates from Free FIre Brazil, the upcoming character from the next update is Lucas and we know that Free Fire so far has only ever introduced one character in each update.
