Siddharth on why Deepika skipped Fighter promotions
Giving an explanation for Deepika’s absence, Siddharth had told Bollywood Hungama on Monday, “This is a promotional strategy that we have taken. You will start seeing Deepika Padukone from tomorrow (Tuesday) everywhere. People put a lot of conjectures into things. Deepika was supposed to come for the trailer launch, but she was under the weather. And now she is going to be everywhere; our strategy is such. You will start seeing them closer to the release. Also, we didn’t want too much of Hrithik and Deepika before the release. We wanted people to enjoy them on the big screen. We didn’t want that saturation.”
Fighter is Deepika’s second film with Siddharth Anand after the 2023 blockbuster, Pathaan. It is her first with Hrithik Roshan and the onscreen pairing has been getting a great response from their fans. The film will hit screens on January 25 and will have an extended Republic Day weekend. The advance booking for the film is open.
