As reported earlier, both Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are playing pilots in the film, which will feature Anil Kapoor in the role of their mentor. The team recently wrapped up the 10-days-long first schedule of the Siddharth Anand directorial, in Assam. As per the latest reports, the makers are planning to kickstart the second schedule of the highly anticipated project by the beginning of 2023. Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone's ambitious film is slated to hit the theatres on 25th January, 2024. 

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with senior journalist Baradwaj Rangan for the online media Galatta Plus, Hrithik Roshan opened up about Fighter. Here are the 5 EXCITING details revealed by the actor. Have a look...

1. Hrithik Roshan reveals why he said Yes to Fighter

In the interview, Hrithik Roshan opened up about his process of signing films and went on to reveal why he said Yes to Fighter. According to the supremely talented actor, every film has to touch his thought process in some or the other way, and that is what makes him take it up. Interestingly, Hrithik pointed out this as the main reason why he always tries to select from different genres, as he doesn't like monotony. When it comes to Fighter, it was the desire, hope, and opportunity to take cinema to the next level, in terms of the VFX, world-building, and much more, that made him say Yes to the Siddharth Anand directorial.

2. The dream is big and scary

Interestingly, Hrithik Roshan stated that Fighter is a very exciting project for him primarily because the dream is very big, to the extent of being scary. The superstar added that the team has taken quite a massive challenge with the film. From Hrithik's words it is clearly evident that the aerial action film is going to be a completely unique and new experience for Indian cinema audiences in terms of its scale, making, and performances. Well, the actor's revelation has clearly raised expectations about the project. 


3. Hrithik Roshan to play a larger-than-life protagonist (a superhero?)

However, the way Hrithik Roshan mentioned Fighter is an exciting project because of the process of "creating the superhero," when he was asked why he signed the film. From the actor's words, it is evident that the Siddharth Anand directorial will feature him as a larger-than-life character, mostly a 'superhero' as he mentioned. However, the actor refrained from revealed anything about his character in the film.

4. Director Siddharth Anand's ambitious project

During the chat, Hrithik Roshan also revealed that Fighter is a very ambitious project for the team, especially director Siddharth Anand. According to the leading man, the hitmaker developed the core idea of Fighter six years back, in 2016. The filmmaker deeply believed in the idea of the film, and he was very persistent about it even when he was busy with his other directorial ventures. With a time period of 6 years, director Siddharth made his big dream strong enough to face the light of the day. "Finally the script came to a state where I could see this happening," remarked Hrithik Roshan. 

In his chat with Baradwaj Rangan, Hrithik Roshan also added that Fighter is a very 'difficult' film. According to the actor, life becomes easy for him when he plays characters like Vedha from Vikram Vedha or Anand Kumar from Super 30, because he is solely an actor who can solely focus on his job, ie, acting. But when it comes to films like Bang Bang, War or Fighter, then he has to take the whole pressure of being a star. "You have to get the aesthetics right, and all the expectations of - oh you have got to look a certain way - That really can sap you. It is a very very difficult process for me," stated Hrithik Roshan.
