Fighting for Release: The Controversy Surrounding Hrithik Roshan & Deepika Padukone's 'Fighter' in Gulf Countries except U.A.E.

There's terrible news for Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone fans in Gulf countries who were looking forward to the premiere of their film 'Fighter'.

As per Girish Johar, film business expert and producer, 'Fighter' "has been denied release in all Gulf countries except UAE as of now."

However, the cause for the prohibition has not yet been divulged. A source close to the 'Fighter' team confirmed the update on the release of 'Fighter' in Gulf countries other than the UAE. The makers have yet to issue a formal remark on the matter. While 'Fighter' has not received censorship approval in Gulf countries, the airborne action thriller will be released in Indian theatres on January 25th.

Siddharth Anand directed the film, which stars Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover, and Akshay Oberoi. It is developed by Viacom18 Studios in conjunction with Marflix Pictures. It is promoted as a tribute to the valor, sacrifice, and patriotism of the Indian military.

Siddharth previously stated regarding the film, "Mamta (Siddharth's wife) and I founded our film company MARFLIX with #FIGHTER." This picture is ambitious in more ways than one. It's more than just a film to us. And we've given it all to this one. 2024 begins with the same feeling of anxiousness and dread. Here's hoping you folks show FIGHTER the same love you showered on PATHAAN. Happy New Year, guys! See you at the movies!! "On January 25th."
