Hrithik Roshan’s Fighter Faces Ban in Gulf, UAE Only Release

Unfortunate Setback for Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone's Fans in Gulf

In a surprising turn of events, fans in Gulf countries are in for a disappointing revelation as Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone’s highly anticipated film, “Fighter,” has been officially banned across all Middle East regions except the UAE. This unexpected development was disclosed by film business expert and producer Girish Johar, who took to Twitter to announce the unfortunate news. The specifics behind the ban remain undisclosed, leaving fans and industry insiders speculating about the reasons behind this unexpected decision.

Girish Johar’s tweet delivered the blow: “In a setback, #Fighter officially banned across Middle East regions for theatrical release. Only UAE will release the film with PG15 classification!” This classification adds another layer of intrigue, leaving audiences to wonder about the unique aspects that led to this particular rating.

Sources close to the Fighter team have confirmed the ban in Gulf countries, adding to the air of uncertainty surrounding the project. As of now, there has been no official statement from the makers regarding this unexpected turn of events. However, amidst the disappointment for international fans, the film is still scheduled for release in Indian theaters on January 25.

“Fighter,” directed by Siddharth Anand, boasts an ensemble cast featuring not only Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone but also includes Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover, and Akshay Oberoi. The film, produced by Viacom18 Studios in collaboration with Marflix Pictures, carries the weight of being a tribute to the valor, sacrifice, and patriotism of the Indian armed forces.

Siddharth Anand, the director, shared his sentiments about the film, expressing its significance in his career and personal life. He said, “Mamta (Siddharth’s wife) and I started our film company MARFLIX with #FIGHTER. A film that is ambitious in more ways than one. It’s more than just a film for us. And we have given it all to this one. 2024 starts with the same feeling again of nervousness and anxiety. Here’s hoping that you guys give the same love to FIGHTER that you showered on PATHAAN. See at the movies!! On 25th January.”

This unexpected hurdle in the film’s international release has added an extra layer of suspense and curiosity surrounding “Fighter,” leaving fans and the film industry alike eagerly awaiting further developments and official statements from the production team.
