Fighter is said to be a tribute to the sacrifice and patriotism of the Indian armed forces. The story is about a new elite unit, Air Dragons, which is commissioned by the Air Headquarters in response to militant activities in the Srinagar Valley.

On comparison with Top Gun

Recently, Siddharth Anand addressed the comparisons of Fighter with Top Gun films in an interview with Zoom, and added, "I think it is inevitable. As a filmmaker, you have to be prepared that if you make a film on planes they will call it Top Gun because they have no reference point so they believe that we are not so creative, that we will do things that are a rip-off. We need to start looking at our films with a little bit more respect and not constantly believe that things are being ripped off. People do get inspired, even in the West, by content that is created in the East.”
