This film is being presented by Karan Johar in Hindi and it marks Vijay's most-awaited Bollywood debut.
Talking about it, Vijay said that he has been super excited since day 1 of the shoot. "This is the first-ever film in my filmography where I have prepped up really a lot before joining the shoot. For my previous films, it was more like preparing mentally. But for Fighter, there was a lot of physical strain. I underwent martial arts training in Thailand also. That night before the shoot, I was awake till 3 am and was super excited to get onto the sets," he said.
