Its been a long since Bollywood fans have been demanding a film starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone together. The two impeccable actors have finally joined hands for Siddharth Anand’s action film ‘Fighter’. The film is being suspected to be a spy-thriller. The announcement was made on the occasion of Hrithik’s 47th birthday with him posting a glimpse of the film.
“Presenting a glimpse of the MARFLIX vision as #Fighter! Looking forward to my first flight alongside the exceptional @deepikapadukone. All buckled up for this Sid Anand joyride” he posted on Instagram. Deepika Padukone reacted saying “Dreams really do come true”.
Fans had been already guessing about something like this since Deepika replied to Hrithik’s birthday wish saying ‘another big party is yet to come’.
The big announcement from Hrithik Roshan comes after a long time. He was last seen in ‘War’ beside Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor in 2019. While Deepika Padukone is currently working on Shakun Batra’s next untitled directorial, she will also be seen in Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathan’ and has also signed for an epic saga co-starring Prabhas. The actress was last seen in Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Chapaak’ last year.
Both Deepika and Hrithik have previously collaborated with Siddharth. Hrithik has worked with him on two movies Bang Bang and War, while Anand had directed Deepika in the romedy Bachna Ae Haseeno.
“This is definitely one of the most exciting moments of my life to bring together two of my favorite stars, Hrithik and Deepika, for the first time to the Indian and global audience. I am thrilled to begin the journey of MARFLIX, a production house dedicated to action film making in India. I start this journey of Marflix along with my life partner Mamta Anand. Starting MARFLIX with Hrithik is special as he is someone who has seen me even working as an AD, then as a director on two films and now I am not just his director but I’m also starting my production house with him”, the filmmaker shared his enthusiasm on the announcement.
‘Fighter’ is the first film to be produced by Siddharth Anand’s production company Marflix. It aims at becoming THE action film production house of India.
