Hrithik Roshan to reunite with 'War' director Siddharth Anand for an aerial action thriller 'Fighter'?


Bollywood's Greek God Hrithik Roshan is a man of every girl's dream and his recently released film War was a sight for sore eyes. Be it his salt-pepper hair or drool-worthy looks, one couldn't stop gushing over him. While War was pure entertainment in all aspects, one scene that caught attention was the airplane murder sequence. Hrithik's character Kabir is shown to build super strong magnets and perfectly uses them to jump from one aircraft to another, mid-air. Well, the audience was clearly impressed with the aerial act! 

Now, along the lines of the sequence, War's director Siddharth Anand has reportedly developed a film for Hrithik. A source close to the development told an entertainment portal that the film is titled Fighter. "Sidharth Anand recently started shooting for Pathan with Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai, and the director will be completely immersed in this film till Diwali 2021 weekend. Right after the release of Pathan, he will jump onto directing Fighter for Hrithik Roshan," the source told.

The source added that Fighter will be a big scale action thriller against the backdrop of fighter jets. Reportedly, Siddharth has narrated it to Hrithik who is excited to explore the space of aerial action thriller. "Sid had narrated this idea of making a big scale action thriller against the backdrop of “FIGHTER JETS” while shooting for War, and Hrithik had loved the basic premise back then. With free time in lockdown, Sid worked on developing it further and narrated it to Hrithik recently, who is all charged up to explore this space. If you were bowled over Hrithik’s presentation in War, be assured, it’s Hrithik in a never seen before larger than life avatar here in this aerial action thriller," the source added. 

According to the entertainment portal's report, Fighter is expected to go on floors by early 2022 and will release in the latter half. Siddharth and Hrithik will also team up for War 2 but reportedly, the film will take some more time.
