Subsequently, the audience is introduced to Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor, both poised to portray Air Force officers in the film. To pay homage to the patriotic fervour of the day, the motion poster harmoniously weaves in a rendition of 'Vande Mataram,' India's national song.

This harmonious blend of visuals and music encapsulates the spirit of "Fighter," creating a tantalising preview of the thrilling journey that awaits within the film's narrative tapestry.

As soon as the video was out, fans flooded the comment section praising the looks of the three actors and predicting that the film will be a huge hit.

This is our answer. Looks so great."

Presented by Viacom18 Studios in association with Marflix Pictures, the film will hit the theatres on the eve of India's 75th Republic Day, January 25, 2024.
