Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan are all set to work on a brand new project for the first time. Directed by Siddharth Anand the action film is titled Fighter. The film was announced last year and it was scheduled to release this September but due to the Covid wave, the film got stuck.
Now, after a halt of almost a year, a source has informed that the film is all set to kickstart its shoot in June this year. Both the actors, Hrithik and Deepika will be shooting for the action-packed aerial film from June onwards under the production banner of Yash Raj Films.
Talking about the Fighter, its director Siddharth earlier told BT, “Fighter is my most ambitious film yet and I am glad to have someone with Ajit’s vision and passion to be partnering this film with me. This film is our attempt to create not only the first aerial action franchise in India but also put Indian films on the map for action-loving global theatrical audiences.”
Meanwhile, Deepika also has Pathan with Shah Rukh Khan, and John Abraham. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand. She is also waiting for the release of 83 with her husband and actor Ranveer Singh. The actress also has Shakun Batra’s next in the pipeline.
On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan has Vikram Vedha remake and Krrish 4 in his kitty. Hrithik & Deepika coming together has already created enough buzz, the on-screen chemistry between the duo will be worth watching.
