Mumbai: “Fighter,” starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, will be India’s first airborne action film.
The film, directed by Siddharth Anand, will be shot in locations all over the world using cutting-edge technology and filming techniques. “Fighter” is set to be released in 2022.
“‘Fighter’ is a dream project for me, and I am grateful to have someone with Ajit’s vision on board. With this picture, we hope to put Indian films on the map for action-loving worldwide theatregoers who crave spectacle and the big screen experience “Director Siddharth Anand spoke about Viacom18 COO Ajit Andhare’s involvement in the production.
Viacom18 Studios, Mamta Anand, Ramon Chibb, and Anku Pande will produce the film.
Ajit Andhare, COO of Viacom18 Studios, commented on the project: “Aerial action films provide a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience. It has never been attempted in India. As a ‘Top Gun’ lover, I’ve been seeking for a script with aerial action and a plot set in India for years. The answer is ‘fighter.’ Siddharth understands the genre and adds his own flavour to his flicks. I am thrilled to be working with him to create this franchise.”
