The trailer for Fighter gave viewers a glimpse of the plot of the aerial action adventure. Hrithik stars as Squadron Leader Shamsher Pathania, while Deepika plays Squadron Leader Minal Rathore and Anil Kapoor is Group Captain Rakesh Jai Singh. When militant activities begin to go out of control in the Srinagar Valley, a new and elite unit, Air Dragons, is commissioned by the Air Headquarters. Fighter revolves around the members of these Air Dragons, who are willing to give it their all for the nation while going through the highs and lows of their internal and external battles.
Hania Aamir, Adnan Siddiqui and many other Pakistani actors criticised the film’s plot after the release of the trailer. Hania said in her Instagram Stories, “So sad and unfortunate to know that there are artists out there in this day and age who are aware of the power that the cinema holds and still go ahead and feed the riff between the two countries. I feel sorry for the artists who try to bridge the gap by trusting their art as a medium. Distasteful; let art breathe.” Siddharth Anand then reacted to tweets which revealed that Hania had starred in Anti-India films in the past.
Adnan Siddiqui did not mention the name of the film, but tweeted recently, “Once celebrated for love, Bollywood now crafts hate-filled narratives, portraying us as villains. Despite our love for your films, it’s disheartening. Art transcends boundaries; let’s use it to promote love and peace. Two nations, victims of politics, deserve better.”
