Why Fighter underperformed
Talking about the average response of the film at the box office despite good reviews and word of mouth, Siddharth Anand told Galatta Plus why he thinks Fighter did not perform as expected. He said, “Fighter is a huge leap. As filmmakers to do in this in the country, and the kind of genre it is. Its a space that is unexplored, and is absolutely new. It has no reference point for the audience, that means what they are seeing is a little… accha… such big stars, a commercial director, accha ye planes kya kar rahi he (what are these planes doing)? I am like is this my film, I don’t know this. If you realize, there is a huge percentage of our country… I would say 90 percent who have not flown in planes! Who have not been to an airport! So how do you expect them to know what’s happening in the air?”
