On his birthday, Hrithik Roshan announced his third collaboration (after Bang Bang and War) with Siddharth Anand, Fighter, which pairs him alongside Deepika Padukone for the first time. The announcement created a lot of anticipation around the film –due to hints given in the announcement video around the film’s premise, that revolves around the fighter jets, coupled with the first time pairing for Hrithik and Deepika. Pinkvilla has got some exclusive details around the film’s plot, shoot schedule and budget.

“Siddharth and Hrithik have been planning to make Fighter for a while now, in-fact it’s a subject they were supposed to collaborate on before War. It’s a big scale areal action thriller, with Hrithik playing the character of an air force pilot for the first time in his career. Sid has envisioned the story on a massive scale, with areal fight scenes, chases and a lot more, backed with a story line with undercurrent of nationalism, romance and emotions,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that while it marks Sid’s debut as a producer, a studio partner is expected to  come on board soon.

“Sid is planning to make it on a budget of Rs 250 crore, thereby making it one of the costliest and biggest action films to have come out of Bollywood. The Hindi film industry has not seen big scale action thriller against the backdrop of Indian Airforce for a while now, and that’s exactly the space that Hrithik and Sid are trying to explore,” the source added. Deepika’s character sketch has been kept under wraps for now.

Sid is currently shooting for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathan, and even that features Deepika Padukone as the female lead with John Abraham as the antagonist. The director had recently air-dashed to the US to shoot some templates for Pathan, which will eventually be canned against the green screen at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai. The next schedule of Pathan begins in a fortnight in Abu Dhabi, and the entire cast is expected to be a part of this marathon schedule. Sid aims to wrap up Pathan by June 2021 and get it ready for a Diwali release and begin shooting for Fighter from December for a September 30, 2022 opening at the box-office.

Tigress of bollywood? Really ? For your kind information her films JMHK and Panga are flops Deepika's film earn more then Kangana's films. Kangana gave only 2 or 3 100 cr films in her 17 year career.Deepika is the Queen of box office...Pv post

Kangana is the lone tigress of Bollywood. All her films are female centric. She is the eternal Bollywood Queen and the biggest legend in making.

83, Pathan, film with Prabhas and Hritik, In all these films Deepika is a second fiddle to male Superstars. From Padmavat to these films, what an EPIC fall.

First of all, go and resurch abt Deepika's upcoming films properly. She is also doing a flims like the intern shakiness next with New actors and Drupal,. Then go and check Prabhas interview he said he wants to work with Deepika.? NOW PV POST

And Deepika fans claimed she is number one and can give hits on her own without a big superstar. They said she is different from Katrina, Anushka and Kareena.

Deepika gave 5 100 cr films back to back. No 1 can beat her record. Ramleela YJHD Cocktail CE

Lol Padmavat was Deepika's film ? I can't stop laughing. Simba and Kabir Singh proves that both Ranveer and Shahid can themselves give 200 cr solo hits. Now combine them with a brilliant director like SLB and you will definitely get a hit with or without deepika. Chapaak and Finding fanny are her true stardom.

Yes Katrina's fans Deepika is a number one and can give a hit without big superstars. Ramleela and padmavat are few examples. Chill. Truth should be posted pv plz

Kangana is entirely in different league with all female centric films. Then comes Alia who can give female centric hits like Raazi. Then comes Priyanka who won't play a second fiddle to khans and Roshan or Kapoor. Then comes Deepika and Katrina who are always dying to work with big stars.

Kangana's films panga and jmhk are flop on box office.Deepika's film chhapaak earn more then kangana's films on box office. And alia everyone knows what happened with Kalakaua and sadak 2 after working with legends like Sanjay data and Madhuri her films are failed.

Lol and Deepika fans used to Claim that Deepika is in different league and not in leagues of Katrina and Kareena. They used to compare her with Priyanka and Kangana but Deepika knowledge can't carry a film on her own and can give hits only with big stars like Katrina and Kareena.

Deepika lost the oomph factor. she looks more exhausted and work out looks. I think both are losing their market value, im not talking about their age. But Deepika has been losing her image since that JNU fiasco. I am sure now even the public knows her fake image

Deepika took drugs CHECK Deepika joined a now proven anti national protest CHECK Bollywood still want to fund big on actors who are irresponsible role models CHECK Will people forget and move on and remain mind controlled?? If yes. Then India is doomed, moving towards its destruction as a society with no morals and ethics.
