On Hrithik Roshan's 47th birthday, the Greek god of Bollywood, gave a treat to his fans by announcing an action entertainer with Deepika Padukone. While we are waiting for the film to go on floors, the latest update of the movie suggests that it will be made on the insane budget of Rs 250 crore thus making it one of the costliest films ever. As per the PinkVilla report, a source close to the development said, “Siddharth and Hrithik have been planning to make Fighter for a while now, in-fact it’s a subject they were supposed to collaborate on before War. It’s a big scale areal action thriller, with Hrithik playing the character of an air force pilot for the first time in his career. Sid has envisioned the story on a massive scale, with areal fight scenes, chases and a lot more, backed with a story line with undercurrent of nationalism, romance and emotions.”
He added, “Sid is planning to make it on a budget of Rs 250 crore, thereby making it one of the costliest and biggest action films to have come out of Bollywood. The Hindi film industry has not seen big scale action thriller against the backdrop of Indian Airforce for a while now, and that’s exactly the space that Hrithik and Sid are trying to explore.”
Sharing the title on his birthday, Hrithik wrote, “Presenting a glimpse of the MARFLIX vision as #Fighter! Looking forward to my first flight alongside the exceptional @deepikapadukone. All buckled up for this Sid Anand joyride.” He also shared a note, which reads, “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!”
