For the first time, Deepika Padukone would share screen space with Hrithik Roshan in Siddharth Anand’s directorial, Fighter.
Deepika Padukone reveals Hrithik Roshan's nickname on Instagram.
Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan are two of the most loved celebrities in Bollywood. However, despite working in the film industry for over 15 years, the talented stars have never shared screen space. This fact is indeed surprising as there was, is and continues to be no news of any tiff between the two stars.
To break this fact, Hrithik and Deepika have decided to come together for a film titled Fighter. This upcoming movie is directed by filmmaker Siddharth Anand and is slated to be released theatrically on January 24. This film will also feature actors Anil Kapoor and Karan Singh Grover in supporting roles.
Nowadays, Siddharth is busy shooting this action film. On Wednesday, Deepika Padukone shared a glimpse from the sets of the film featuring Hrithik Roshan standing with pride near an aircraft. To this post, Deepika captioned: “What do you think I call him (in the movie)? #Fighter #25Jan2024”
Soon after Deepika dropped this post, her fans thronged the comments sections with various answers. Actor Karan Singh Grover liked the glimpse and said, “I know what you call him.”
It had been a little over 24 hours since Deepika dropped this post and fans remained curious to know the answer. Replying to fans’ eagerness, Deepika Padukone said that the right answer to her question is “PATTY”.
Hrithik Roshan is yet to respond to the development.
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan have a couple of projects lined up at the moment.
Deepika, who enjoys a fan-following of over 74.5 million Instagram users, will next star opposite actor Prabhas in a film titled Project K made by filmmaker Nag Ashwin. This film will also feature megastars Kamal Haasan and Amitabh Bachchan in pivotal roles. Actress Disha Patani will also be a part of Project K.
Hrithik will also feature in numerous commercial advertisements of top brands.
