As 'Fighter' continues to soar at the box office, director Siddharth Anand has proudly acknowledged the film's phenomenal success, emphasizing that its impressive performance comes despite facing unique challenges. The aerial action drama, starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, has been making waves, securing a remarkable box office collection within just two days of its release.

Addressing a tweet that highlighted Fighter as a non-pan India movie and revealed its ban in Gulf countries, Siddharth Anand responded with a simple yet impactful statement, "True Story" accompanied by a bicep emoji. This acknowledgement confirmed the film's exceptional achievement, having crossed the 100 crore mark worldwide in just two days, a testament to its strong reception among the Hindi-speaking audience.

Fighter, featuring a stellar cast including Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover, and Akshay Oberoi, follows the story of an elite team responding to a threat from across the border. Despite being a Hindi-language release catering primarily to the Indian audience, the film has witnessed resounding success, surpassing expectations.

Released on January 25th, Fighter opened to a strong response in India, earning Rs 24.6 crore on the first day. The Republic Day holiday further propelled its box office figures, with a collection of Rs 41.2 crore on Friday. The film's two-day domestic collection stands at an impressive Rs 65.8 crore, a testament to its widespread popularity.

Fighter, directed by Siddharth Anand, not only showcases high-octane aerial action but also boasts a stellar ensemble cast including Anil Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi, Karan Singh Grover, Sanjeeda Shaikh and Talat Aziz.
