Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are poised to resume production on the last instalment of Siddharth's ‘Fighter’, which is billed as India's first aerial action franchise. Along with three songs, the duo will film some patchwork segments with Anil Kapoor. Now, Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are headed to Italy for a 15-day ‘Fighter’ shoot.
According to people close to the situation, the duo will begin filming for two songs on September 27.
“The Italy schedule begins with a dance number in the coming week picturized on Hrithik and Deepika. It’s a foot-tapping dance number on the lines of Ghungroo from War, with the leading pair looking their best. The stylish song, composed by Vishal and Shekhar, will be the talk of the town once launched,” said a source close to the development, adding that Siddharth intends to make the song a spectacular affair with a large dance troupe.
“Sid loves to set up his songs in a certain way and right from his debut film, the songs always stood out with regards to tunes as well as visuals – be it Khuda Jaane, Meherbaan, Ghungroo, Jai Jai Shiv Shankar, Besharam Rang, Tujhe Bhula Diya and many more. Fighter will be no different,” the source shared.
The song is choreographed by Bosco and Ceaser, and the dance routine will feature numerous hooks moves for the two protagonists, according to the source. Hrithik and Deepika will rejoin for a love ballad after the 5-day shoot for the dance sequence.
“There will be a shift of location in Italy as the Fighter team moves on to shooting a quintessential romantic number displaying the chemistry of HR and DP. The number will have a vibe and flavour of its own, with two of the most good-looking actors of Hindi at their best,” the source added.
The entire ‘Fighter’ crew is enthusiastic for the foreign leg, which will add a fresh flavour to the film's visual palette. "The aerial action thriller will be completed by mid-October. The end of the shoot will also mark the start of the promotional journey for Fighter, with the team providing fans with frequent updates and assets from October to January, leading up to the major release on Republic Day," the source said.
‘Fighter’ is being developed as a trilogy by Siddharth Anand and Mamta Anand under their Marflix Entertainment label in collaboration with Viacom 18.
