In a disappointing turn of events for fans eagerly awaiting Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone’s on-screen collaboration in “Fighter,” the film has faced a setback in Gulf countries. According to film business expert Girish Johar, the movie has been denied release across all Gulf countries, except the United Arab Emirates (UAE). While the reason for the ban remains undisclosed, the news has left fans in anticipation for an official statement from the film’s makers.

Girish Johar took to Twitter to share the disheartening news, revealing that “Fighter” has faced an official ban in the Middle East regions, preventing its theatrical release. However, UAE stands as the exception, where the film is set to release with a PG15 classification. The decision has raised questions, and fans are eagerly awaiting details regarding the cause behind the ban.

Despite the confirmation from sources close to the “Fighter” team, an official statement from the filmmakers is yet to be issued. The lack of information surrounding the ban has led to speculation and curiosity among fans. The film, directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Viacom18 Studios in collaboration with Marflix Pictures, has generated considerable buzz for its aerial action sequences and star-studded cast.

Siddharth Anand, the director, expressed his sentiments about the film, calling it ambitious and more than just a cinematic project.

Director Siddharth Anand, who co-founded the film company MARFLIX with his wife Mamta, expressed the significance of “Fighter” for them.
