It is still early days for the film, but we are on the journey to creating something special.”
Post Pathaan, Siddharth will be collaborating with Deepika Padukone once more and he promises to present her in a whole new light. He further gives insight into Deepika’s character in the film. He said, “In Pathaan, she was a spy and in Fighter she is playing an air force officer. She is playing a character which is authentic, rooted and her research has been fabulous. Deepika plays real life characters beautifully. Although in Pathaan hers was a commercial-extravagant role, but in Fighter, she is very authentic. She is doing a lot of action and crazy stuff.”
Talking about his and Hrithik’s bond, the director said, “Hrithik is very special to me and we’ve been working for the last 10 years now! There is great synergy between us. He understands what I want through my actions, and he can read the look on my face. That energy is very special between an actor and a director. Hopefully the audience will get a new treat.”
Fighter marks as second collaboration for Siddharth Anand and Deepika Padukone whereas as third collaboration with Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik was last seen in Vikram Vedha along with Saif Ali Khan. Deepika has an interesting line-up of films including The Intern remake, Singham Again, Project K, among others.
