In an interaction with India Today, Siddharth opened up on Hrithik’s chracter in the action drama. He said, “This is my third film with Hrithik Roshan, and each of my characters has been entirely different. Rajveer (from Bang Bang!) and Kabir (from War) are two different people and their personalities are completely opposite. Patty, the character that he is playing in Fighter – he has made it his own.”
He further added that Hrithik has an innate ability to quickly adapt, that makes him give his all to the role. He carried on, “And Hrithik is like a chameleon. He just adapts and becomes that character for that whole year. He brings a certain genuineness to the role, that can last throughout a franchise. So, it is not just made up for that moment, he totally becomes that person.”
Fighter will reportedly be based on the life of Indian Air Force pilots and will see both Hrithik and Deepika play the same, in their maiden on-screen pairing. Anil Kapoor too, is playing a key role in the movie, apart from Akshay Oberoi and Karan Singh Grover. The movie is expected to release early next year.
