Siddharth Anand's 'Fighter', starring Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor, had high hopes riding on it, and fans were expecting to see the Hindi film become the first blockbuster of 2024. However, this has not turned out to be the case, and the new Hindi film is struggling to even cross the Rs 200 crore mark in India. As per producers of the film, 'Fighter' has gone past Rs 335 crore globally.

In the latest entertainment news, Hrithik Roshan shared the worldwide collection of 'Fighter' on Instagram Stories, and he captioned it as, "Never seen a movie put up a fight like this one! Proud of you FIGHTER."

For the unversed, 'Fighter' has been made on a budget of Rs 250 crore, and it released in cinemas on January 25. 

'Fighter' earned around Rs 1.20 crore on Monday, which was the 19th day of its release, as per industry tracker Sacnilk. The total nett domestic collection of the film now stands at Rs 198.10 crore.

In all likelihood, the film will be going past the Rs 200 crore mark this week. 

'Fighter' revolves around the Balakot airstrike carried out by the Indian Armed Forces. For the unversed, this was a retaliatory airstrike aimed at the purported largest camp of the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).

This action was taken in response to a terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir, which led to the deaths of nearly 40 CRPF soldiers.

Earlier, Siddharth Anand had defended the underwhelming box office performance of ‘Fighter’, saying 90 per cent of Indians have not taken a flight, hence it is hard for them to relate to the aerial action sequences in the film.

“Another thing is the genre. Fighter is a huge leap for a filmmaker. It’s a space that is unexplored and absolutely new. It has no reference point for the audience. They are like, ‘What are these planes doing?',” Siddharth Anand said in an interview with Galatta Plus.

“There is a huge percentage of our country, I would say, 90 per cent, who have not flown in planes, who have not been to an airport, so how would they know what’s happening in the movie? This is my dissection. They felt this is a little alien. They didn’t understand what kind of exhilaration they are supposed to feel in the air action, so there is a certain initial disconnect. But once you enter the theatre, you realise this is such a basic film,” he added.
