‘Fighter’, helmed by Siddharth Anand, is a film many are looking forward to as it’ll bring together Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone on screen for a feature film for the first time. The director has said that they will be seen performing action scenes.
“Deepika will be seen doing lots of actions together with Hrithik. You will see both performing action as both are part of the same team. It’s refreshing that a film that is so organic for the hero and heroine to do action. Upping the ante in the action with Hrithik and her is a big challenge for me, especially after War. With Deepika joining Hrithik, we have to raise the scale of action,” said Anand, as quoted by Pinkvilla.
Anand launched his production house Marflix with this film. He continues, “I am highly motivated because there is no benchmark yet in a Hindi film for a movie like this so whatever we do should create that benchmark. It’s not important to get Hollywood technicians for designing the action etc. We have very talented ones here. It depends on what we need and I would love to work with our Indian talent and raise the bar with our people. Fighter is rooted in its theme, story and language. It’s about the Indian Air Force, so we have kept the action realistic, believable and yet what I call as ‘heightened reality’ which will appease every fan of Deepika and Hrithik”.
Talking about the shoot of the film, which hasn’t yet begun, “We are not in a hurry. We just want to give the audience an experience that will blow their minds and justify them coming back to the theatres. We plan to shoot the film in India in the first quarter of next year as it’s a big film and needs to be planned and executed in a proper way”.
