Fighter Legal Notice
The film has received a legal notice over a kissing scene between the lead actors. According to India TV, Wing Commander Saumya Deep Das, an officer of the Indian Air Force, issued the notice. The notice states that the film misrepresents the dignity of the Indian Air Force symbol by incorporating it into a scene promoting personal romantic relationships, thus devaluing the sacrifices made by officers in service of the nation.
The film, directed by Siddharth Anand, features Hrithik Roshan as Squadron Leader Shamsher Pathania aka Patty, Deepika Padukone as Squadron Leader Minal Rathore aka Minni, and Anil Kapoor as Group Captain Rakesh Jai Singh aka Rocky, fighting for the country. It is billed as a tribute to the valour, sacrifice, and patriotism of the Indian armed forces.
Controversy Over Kissing Scene
The legal notice alleges that the kissing scene between Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, who play Indian Air Force officers in the film, is inappropriate and unbecoming of an IAF officer. The notice states that the scene contradicts the high standards of discipline and decorum expected from IAF officers.
Future of Fighter at the Box Office
The sharp decline in the Box Office Collection of Fighter on day 14 indicates a significant loss of audience interest. It remains uncertain whether the film will be able to stage a comeback and regain its footing at the box office in the coming days.
