Roshan said it is an “honour” for him to be working in Fighter as it “deepens his association” with its producer Anand, who is also his friend, The Indian Express reported.
“It is an honour for me as an actor to introduce and be a part of Mamta and Sid[dharth] Anand’s first production Fighter for Marflix! This one is special as it deepens my association with a director and a friend whose journey I have witnessed from being an assistant director on my sets to directing me in Bang Bang and War.”
He expressed his excitement and thanked Anand for “believing” in him.
“And now as he turns producer for Fighter, I can’t seem to contain my excitement,” he said. “This one is pure adrenaline for the heart and mind. So here goes! Boom! Thank you Sid[dharth] for believing in me and making me your co-passenger yet again. Here’s to your journey towards the sky!”
Roshan was last seen in the 2019 blockbuster War and Padukone in Chhapaak (2020).
Fighter is expected to release on September 30, 2022.
