Fighter was earlier scheduled to release this year. It was rescheduled for a Republic Day release next year, when it clashed with Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s untitled film, but the makers have now changed the date again.
Anil Kapoor had joined the cast of Fighter in December last year. Hrithik Roshan welcomed the veteran actor on his birthday with this tweet.
Happy birthday to the person who is younger every year in spirit and health, @AnilKapoor , Best wishes to you sir. From seeing your wonderful presence on the sets as an assistant to finally getting the opportunity to share the screen with you.. #fighterpic.twitter.com/V0a73ZIAj5
