The trailer for Siddharth Anand’s much anticipated action-drama Fighter has been released. Although the makers did not create any hype regarding this, the trailer is getting all the praise from audiences.

Is Fighter Movie Based on Pulwama Attack and Balakot Air Strike?
The Pulwama attack transpired on February 14, 2019, when a convoy of vehicles transporting Indian security personnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway fell victim to a suicide bombing perpetrated by a vehicle-borne assailant in Lethapora, located in the Pulwama district of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir. This incident marked one of the most fatal terrorist attacks on Indian security forces in decades.
Subsequently, on February 26, 2019, a specially trained team from the Indian Air Force carried out an airstrike in the Balakot region of Pakistan in response to the Pulwama terror attack. This event marked the first instance since the Indo-Pak War of 1971 in which an Indian aircraft conducted such a strike across the border. The operation was codenamed “Operation Bandar.”
There are several references to the Pulwama attack and the Balakot air strike in the movie. The trailer for Fighter opens up with light-hearted moments and glamorous scenes, but as it moves forward, it reveals that the story is going to be based on the deadly Pulwama attack and Balakot air strike.
In the trailer, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan, Anil Kapoor, and others can be seen playing the characters of Indian Air Force officers. Both Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan look extremely smart and chic in their uniforms, and the CGI in the movie looks extremely real and thrilling.
