It has been revealed by producer Charmee Kaur that the title of the film was tentative and that the team is working on changing the title of the film. She has also stated that the film unit is working with the tentative title itself and calling the film Fighter. However, the actual title of the film will be revealed later.
While not much has been revealed about the film, it has been disclosed that the film will have a fair share of action sequences and even a little romance. To perfect the action sequences, the Dear Comrade actor also took some professional mixed martial arts training from Thailand. The film also stars Student of the Year 2 actor Ananya Pandey in the lead role.
It was also previously revealed that Vijay Deverakonda wasn’t the first or the second choice for the film, Fighter. According to reports, Puri Jagannadh who is the director of the film was planning to cast Allu Arjun for the role of the male lead. He had even taken the script to the actor. However, he rejected the film for some unstated reasons.
After Allu Arjun rejected Fighter, Puri Jagannadh made a few tweaks in the script and planned on casting his son Akash Puri Jagannadh in the film. However, that too didn’t work out and the film finally went to Vijay Deverakonda. Vijay Deverakonda has expressed his excitement about the project calling it the ''wackiest'' commercial film he has ever been a part of.
Just a few days before the lockdown was imposed, Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday were spotted at multiple locations shooting for Fighter. It has been reported that about 40 to 50 percent of the film has been shot. According to reports, the movie Fighter will star Vijay Deverakonda, Ananya Panday, Ronit Roy, and Ramya Krishna in pivotal roles. Puri Jagannadh is credited for directing the film as well as producing it with Charmme Kaur, Karan Johar, and Apoorva Mehta.
