If there is an actor in Bollywood, who is actually ageing in reverse, it’s Anil Kapoor. The actor is getting more agile and fitter by the day. A few years ago, he left me gobsmacked by his look in the announcement picture of Malang, then in the movie he just blew me away some more. And seems like I am in for some more action packed avatar of Anil, as on the occasion of his birthday, there is a major announcement made of the actor being a part of a much-awaited actioner.

Taking to Instagram, Hrithik Roshan wished Anil on his special day, also announcing that the two of them will be sharing screen space in the actor’s upcoming actioner, Fighter, which is helmed by Siddharth Anand and features him opposite Deepika Padukone.

Check out his post here:

Hrithik wrote:

“Happiest Birthday to the man who grows younger each year in spirit and health, @anilskapoor! Best wishes to you Sir. From witnessing your legendary presence on sets as a mere assistant, to finally having the opportunity of sharing the screen with you.. Super excited for #Fighter! ♥”

Fighter is touted to be India’s first aerial action franchise, and it will also mark the first collaboration Of Hrithik with both Deepika and Anil. The actress and Anil have previously appeared together in Race 2, but there they didn’t have much screen time together. So, it will be an interesting and fresh equation to see between all the three leads.

Fighter was already a really exciting project for me due to the genre and the first time pairing of Hrithik and Deepika. Now the addition of Anil to the team has made the project all the more thrilling. I got to see a different action avatar of Anil with Malang, and with Fighter I expect him to take it up a notch higher.
