Siddharth Anand has been making headlines all of 2023 with the tremendous success of Pathaan, where he brought Bollywood magic back on screen after the pandemic. Interestingly, the director has become the most wanted man in the Indian film industry, where he is currently shooting for his next project, 'Fighter, where he is bringing the unprecedented duo of Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan on screen for the first time.
Apart from Fighter, though, another film has been in the news, and this one has Anand's production house, Marflix Pictures, backing it. In the same project, recent reports suggest Jaideep Ahlawat has joined the film as the antagonist opposite Saif Ali Khan, which has made it yet another casting coup from Siddharth Anand. Marflix Pictures is producing the Saif Ali Khan starrer for Netflix, and the untitled movie will be directed by Robbie Grewal.ALSO READ: Shah Rukh Khan's birthday surprise for fans: 'Jawan' released on Netflix with the extended cut
