Director Siddharth Anand‘s much-anticipated aerial action thriller Fighter starring Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor is set to hit the big screens tomorrow, with lots of expectations and excitement.
The film secured a ‘U/A’ certificate from the censor board, with an approved runtime of 2 hours and 43 minutes. The movie is all set for a release across 4200 screens nationwide.As the countdown to the first show intensifies, pre-sales for Fighter are closing in on Rs 7 crore gross, with over 214,000 tickets already sold. The expected final sales will be around Rs 8 crore.
Though this figure has surpassed the benchmark set by Hrithik Roshan’s previous venture Vikram Vedha, it is still deemed as underwhelming, given the grand scale of Fighter and director Siddharth Anand’s recent blockbuster success with Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.

According to Sacnilk, Fighter will have an opening in the range of Rs 25 crore net in India, with potential for growth if positive word of mouth spreads. The Republic Day holiday on January 26 may further boost box office numbers, with evening and night shows expected to witness a housefull turnout.

It remains to be seen whether Fighter will be able to drive its initial success and aim for the long-term box office success in the crucial first four days weekend.
