Welcoming her on board, Hrithik wrote on Instagram, “Happy birthday to the person who is younger in spirit and health every year, @anilkapoor! Best wishes to all of you sir. From seeing your wonderful presence on the sets as a mere assistant to finally getting the opportunity to share the screen with you all.. So excited for #Fighter!”
Anil thanked Hrithik for his kind words and expressed happiness over working with the former. “Thanks @hrithikroshan! Glad to be part of the #Fighter team and finally working with you on screen! #SiddharthAnand,” wrote Kapoor. Deepika also wished Kapoor a happy birthday and welcomed him on board. “Welcome to the Fighter Birthday Boy,” she posted.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Fighter’ is touted as India’s first aerial action franchise. Hrithik has previously worked with Anand in the blockbuster film War. The two reunite for the fighter. Talking about working with Sidharth again, the Krrish actor said, “It’s extremely exciting and even more so because I feel like I am back on a set where Sid (Siddharth Anand) played a role in the film. Has given me something good in war. That’s what drives me like this. Know what this worry is making because well done, it has to be done better.”
He said: “Personally, I think it’s my responsibility because I don’t want to disappoint my director, who has believed in me doing a film like this and it’s even more scary because now he’s impressed. Huh.” It is very difficult to do so. Because I would do everything I could but what else am I going to take out of my pocket, this is something I’m going to spend a few nights thinking about. ,
Fighter will see Hrithik working with actress Deepika Padukone for the first time on screen.
