  • Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone's Fighter has exceeded its budget limit.
  • Reportedly, now the film's budget is touching 350 crores.

The pair of Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are sharing the screen for the first time in 'Fighter'. That is why the hype around this film is quite high. The fans of both Deeps and Duggu are eager to see their favourite stars romancing and doing action scenes on the big screen.

Importantly, the movie is being directed by Siddharth Anand who is currently the most successful director in Bollywood after giving back-to-back hits like War and Pathaan.

While Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are one of the current biggest stars in Bollywood, post the success of Pathaan, Siddharth Anand has also become a star director and that is why his fees have also increased.

Reportedly, Hrithik has charged Rs 85 crore for Fighter while Deeps is getting Rs 20 crore. Siddharth Anand is the second highest earner with Rs 40 crore as his fees. Now, that is a bomb salary and when the fees of these three big people are taken into consideration, it goes near to Rs 150 crore.

That is why Fighter has exceeded its original budget and has now hit Rs 350 crore. Even though Hrithik and Deepika are big stars, and Sidharth has delivered some big hits like Pathaan, it is difficult to recover such a big amount.

Even for superstars like Salman Khan whose recent release Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan it was difficult to reach the Rs 100 crore mark. Granted that apart from big actors, Fighter also has the current best director as the captain of the ship but even then it is going to be difficult to repeat the same feat as Pathaan for him.

To recover the money, Fighter will have to earn at least Rs 350 crore plus globally through theatrical, satellite, and digital earnings. If the movie crosses Rs 400 crore, it can be said to be a profitable venture.
