Fighter is a dream project, and I am glad to have someone with Ajit’s (Viacom COO) vision to be partnering this with me. With this film we aim to put Indian films on the map for action-loving global theatrical audiences who crave for spectacle and the big screen experience.
Fighter will be produced by Viacom 18 Studios, Mamta Anand, Ramon Chibb and Anku Pande. I’m super excited for this film and cant wait to see two of my favourites share the screen space.
