In an interaction with India Today, Pathaan director Siddharth Anand opened up on Hrithik Roshan's character in the upcoming action drama titled Fighter which also stars Deepika Padukone. He said, "This is my third film with Hrithik Roshan, and each of my characters has been entirely different. Rajveer (from Bang Bang!, 2014) and Kabir (from War, 2019) 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 Roshan dives himself into the character and has an innate ability to quickly adapt, that makes him give his all to the role. "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," Anand added.
Fighter will reportedly be based on the life of Indian Air Force pilots and will see both Roshan and Padukone play the same. 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 on January 25, 2024.
