Talking about the same, Hrithik says, ‘I am in the middle of the transformation right now. I am preparing for my role in #Fighter. So yes, I need your blessings and encouragement. It is difficult. So on the 9th of November I should look better than what I look like now. Fingers crossed.’
Fighter will go on floors on November 9 for which Hrithik is transforming himself and preparing a lot. The film is scheduled to be released on 2 Oct, 2023.

Fighter marks the first collaboration between Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone. Talking about the collaboration, Deepika says, “Yeah, I have always wanted to work with him. I feel like it’s the… You know, sometimes it’s not about working with someone. I feel like there are so many things. It has to be the right script, it has to be the right director, the right time in your life. So many things that decide (whether to do a movie or not). So yeah, I guess it’s the right time for us to come together.”
To note, Fighter will be India’s first aerial action franchise. Talking about the same, Director-Producer Siddharth Anand says, “Fighter is a dream project, and I am glad to have someone with Ajit’s (Ajit Andhare, Viacom COO) 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.”
