While the reports of Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan coming on board to play the gangster and cop in the Hindi remake has been out for sometime, the latest rumours suggest that Saif Ali Khan has charged Rs 12 crore for this project, which is quite staggering. The pre-production work of the film is already going in full swing and will reportedly go on floors in summer.
The film will be helmed by the original director duo of Pushkar and Gayathri and is expected to be super special project for Hrithik Roshan as it will be his 25th film. While the project has not been official announced, Hrithik Roshan announced Fighter on his birthday a few days, which will be directed by War and Bang Bang helmer Siddharth Anand and the actor will share screen space with Deepika Padukone for the first time.

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!”
