Mark your calendars as the release date for superstars Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone-starrer ‘Fighter’ is out. The film is set to release on Republic Day 2023.

Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news on his Instagram handle.

“HRITHIK - DEEPIKA’S ‘FIGHTER’ TO RELEASE ON REPUBLIC DAY 2023... #Fighter - starring #HrithikRoshan and #DeepikaPadukone - to release on 26 Jan 2023... Directed by #SiddharthAnand...

The film is being helmed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Ajit Andhare (Viacom18 Studios), Mamta Anand, Ramon Chibb and Anku Pande.

‘Fighter’ is being touted as India’s first aerial action franchise.

Speaking about the upcoming project, Andhare said, “An aerial action film offers a unique cinematic experience. It’s never been done in India. Being a ‘Top Gun’ fan, I have been looking for a script for years that explores aerial action and has a story rooted in India. ‘Fighter’ is that answer. Siddharth understands this genre and brings a unique flair to his films. I am excited to collaborate with him in building this franchise.”
