Siddharth Anand on kissing scene in Fighter: The IAF gave us a no-objection certificate

Siddharth Anand’s Fighter recently drew attention for a kissing scene in the film between Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, who play Indian Air Force (IAF) officers. An Air Force officer from Assam, Saumya Deep Das, raised concerns about the depiction of the intimate moment, especially in the military attire context. He asserted that it was disrespectful to the honour and sanctity associated with the uniform.

Speaking about this in an interview, Siddharth said, "This film is in complete conjunction with the IAF. IAF has been a co-collaborator and a huge associate partner on our film. The film has gone through meticulous procedures with the IAF, right from the submission of the script, to the production planning, viewing the film before the censor saw it, watching it again at the IAF, reviewing the film after the censor, and then giving us a physical copy of the No Objection Certificate.”

Further, he added, “Then, we showed the entire film to everyone in the Air Force, including the Air Force Chief, Mr. Chaudhary, and over 100 Air Marshals from across the country. We called them and hosted a screening for them one day before the film's release in Delhi, and they gave us a standing ovation."

Fighter is presented by Viacom18 Studios in association with Marflix Pictures and also stars Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover and Akshay Oberoi in pivotal roles. The film was released in theatres on January 25 and has managed to do a business of over Rs. 315 crores globally.
