Siddharth Anand Calls Hrithik Roshan A Chameleon. Here’s Why.
Director Siddharth Anand has been in the news for quite some time because of the humongous success of his latest Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer film ‘Pathaan’.
The director is now collaborating with Hrithik Roshan for his next action-thriller film titled ‘Fighter’ that also stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role.
‘Fighter’ marks the third collaboration between Siddharth Anand and Hrithik Roshan after ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘War’. The ‘Greek-God’ of Bollywood was recently called to be a ‘chameleon’ by the ‘Pathaan’ director which left netizens shocked.
During a recent interview, when Siddharth Anand was asked about Hrithik’s character in the action drama film, he said, “This is my third film with Hrithik Roshan, and each of my characters has been entirely different. Rajveer (from Bang Bang!) and Kabir (from War) are two different people and their personalities are completely opposite. Patty, the character that he is playing in Fighter – he has made it his own.”
He further called Hrithik Roshan to be a chameleon while praising his ability to quickly adapt in any and every role. He said, “And Hrithik is like a chameleon. He just adapts and becomes that character for that whole year. He brings a certain genuineness to the role, that can last throughout a franchise. So, it is not just made up for that moment, he totally becomes that person.”
Reportedly, ‘Fighter’ is based upon the life of an Indian Air Force pilot where one can see the lead actors, Hrithik Rosjan and Deepika Padukone in the role of fighter pilots. Apart from these two, the film also stars Anil Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi and Karan Singh Grover in pivotal roles.
Apart from this, Deepika Padukone who made the country proud and was representing India at the 95th Academy Awards will also be seen starring opposite Prabhas in Nag Ashwin directorial film ‘Project K’.
The Amitabh Bachchan starrer, Indian mythological science fiction that is simultaneously being shot in Tamil and Hindi will hit the theaters on January 12, 2024.
