Director Siddharth Anand had said in a statement earlier that the movie is his dream project and with this project, he aims to put Indian films on the map of action-loving global theatrical audiences, who want spectacular big-screen experiences. He also added that he is glad to work with someone like Ajit Andhare, who is the COO of Viacom 18. The team will be using the latest technologies and techniques for the film which will be shot in locations across the world.

Speaking about the aerial action genre, Viacom 18 COO Ajit issued a statement that the genre will offer a unique cinematic experience, which has never been done in India. He further added that being a ‘Top Gun’ fan himself, he was waiting for an aerial action script for years, which has its storyline rooted in India. He thinks that Fighter will be worth the wait and Siddharth will deliver a unique experience with it.

The actors are also equally excited about this new venture. Hrithik had shared a set of pictures on social media. The co-stars were seen happily posing together in a picture which Hrithik captioned as “This gang is ready for take off.” Hrithik and Siddharth had previously collaborated for the 2019 film War.
