While the actor is being showered with love, blessings and wishes from all quarters of social media, Hrithik had pre-planned the best return gift for all his admirers. On the occasion of his birthday, the actor took to social media and announced a new film. Amidst reports of Deepika Padukone uniting with the actor for Dhoom 4, Hrithik has announced that he and Deepika will star together in Siddharth Anand’s Fighter.

The actor took to social media to share the motion poster of the film and along with it, also announced Siddharth’s new production house Marflix. The birthday boy’s caption read, “Presenting a glimpse of the MARFLIX vision as #Fighter! Looking forward to my first flight alongside the exceptional @deepikapadukone. All buckled up for this #SiddharthAnand joyride.”

The actor further penned a long note for the director and shared his excitement about the collaboration. “It is an honour for me as an actor to introduce & be a part of Mamta & Sid Anand’s FIRST PRODUCTION #Fighter for MARFLIX! This one is special as it deepens my association with a director and friend whose journey I have witnessed from being an AD on my sets, to directing me in Bang Bang & War. And now as he turns producer for FIGHTER, I cant seem to contain my excitement. This one is pure adrenaline for the heart and mind. So here goes ! BOOM Thank you Sid, for believing in me & making me your co-passenger yet again. Here’s to your journey towards the sky.”

Deepika, who has also come on board the actioner, shared the motion poster and wrote, “Dreams really do come true… #Fighter #SiddharthAnand @HrithikRoshan #Marflix.”

Siddharth, who has previously helmed the commercially successful War starring Hrithik and Tiger Shroff in key roles, shared his thoughts on the film. Heaping praise on Hrithik and Deepika, Siddharth wrote, “This is definitely one of the most exciting moments of my life to bring together two of my favourite stars, Hrithik and Deepika, for the first time to the Indian and global audience. I am thrilled to begin the journey of MARFLIX, a production house dedicated to action film making in India. I start this journey of Marflix along with my life partner Mamta Anand. Starting MARFLIX with Hrithik is special as he is someone who has seen me even working as an AD, then as director on two films and now I am not just his director but I’m also starting my production house with him.”

As for his production house, the director added, “Our vision for MARFLIX is to create THE action film production house of India. If you think of  action films in India, you should think MARFLIX. That’s our endeavour and we will work hard to get there. Still early days, but the journey has begun.”
