While Siddharth Anand is busy directing Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathan, the makers of his subsequent actioner, titled Fighter, have introduced that the movie would be the nation’s first-ever aerial motion drama. Starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone within the lead roles, it will likely be shot internationally and can pay tribute to the valour and sacrifice of the nation’s armed forces.
Talking concerning the movie, Anand, who can also be making his debut as a producer below his manufacturing firm Marflix, shared, “Fighter is a dream project, and I am glad to have someone with Ajit Andhare (COO, Viacom18 Studios) vision to be partnering this with me. With this film, we aim to put Indian films on the map for action-loving global theatrical audiences who crave for spectacle and the big screen experience.”
Fighter was introduced in January this yr on the event of Hrithik’s birthday. The actor had shared a teaser of the movie and had stated, “It is an honour for me as an actor to introduce and be a part of Mamta and Sid Anand’s first production Fighter for Marflix! This one is special as it deepens my association with a director and a friend whose journey I have witnessed from being an AD on my sets to directing me in Bang Bang and War. And now as he turns producer for Fighter, I can’t seem to contain my excitement. This one is pure adrenaline for the heart and mind. So here goes! Boom! Thank you Sid for believing in me and making me your co-passenger yet again. Here’s to your journey towards the sky!”
The makers of Fighter declare that the actioner might be shot utilizing the most recent know-how and filming methods. Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios, stated, “An aerial action film offers a unique cinematic experience. Being a Top Gun fan, I have been looking for a script for years that explore aerial action and has a story rooted in India. Fighter is that answer. Siddharth understands this genre and brings a unique flair to his films. I am excited to collaborate with him in building this franchise.”
Slated to hit the theaters in 2022, Fighter might be bankrolled by Viacom18 Studios, Mamta Anand, Ramon Chibb and Anku Pande.
