Siddharth Anand’s aerial action drama Fighter, starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, is trending at number 1 on streaming platform Netflix in India, production house Marflix Pictures announced on Instagram on Thursday.

“Hold onto your seats! #Fighter is taking Netflix by storm as the #1 trending film in India,” the makers wrote alongside a poster of the aerial actioner.


The film was ranked number 1 among top 10 movies on the streamer at the time this report was filed on Friday.

In Fighter, Hrithik plays squadron leader Shamsher Pathania, aka Patty, while Deepika essays the role of Minal Rathore, better known as Minni. The film also stars Anil Kapoor as group captain Rakesh ‘Rocky’ Jai Singh.

Following a terror attack in Srinagar, Rocky forms a team called Air Dragons consisting of skilled fighter pilots — Patty, Minnie, Sartaj ‘Taj’ Gill (Karan Singh Grover) and Basheer ‘Bash’ Khan (Akshay Oberoi).

Packed with intense aerial battle sequences reminiscent of Tom Cruise’s Top Gun movies, the film seamlessly blends visual extravaganza and patriotism. Newcomer Rishabh Sawhney plays the role of the antagonist in Fighter.

Produced under the banners of Viacom18 Studios and Marflix Pictures, the film was released theatrically on January 25 and garnered over Rs 337 crore worldwide.
