Directed by Siddharth Anand, the upcoming film is touted to be the first aerial action franchise of India and a homage to the “valour, sacrifice and patriotism of Indian armed forces”.
With the announcement of the film’s new release date, the makers have averted a box office clash with superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s highly awaited action thriller Pathaan.
Fighter was earlier scheduled to arrive in cinemas on January 26, 2023, a day before the theatrical debut of Khan’s Pathaan, produced by Yash Raj Films.
Incidentally, Pathaan is also being directed by Anand and features Padukone as the female lead. John Abraham also essays an important character in the film.
Fighter marks the third collaboration between Anand and Roshan after two action blockbusters like Bang Bang (2014) and War (2019) while Padukone and Abraham are teaming up with him for the first time.
