Sharing the teaser, Deepika wrote in caption, "Dreams really do come true... #SiddharthAnand #Marflix #Fighter @iHrithik."
The teaser hints the film will be an action film high on patriotism. It is scheduled to hit theatres on September 30, 2022.
Deepika had earlier hinted at the double celebration on Hrithik's birthday by reacting to one of her own tweets. After Hrithik wished her on her birthday last week, Deepika pointed that his own birthday will witness a "double celebration."
Talking about the film, Siddharth Anand said, "This is definitely one of the most exciting moments of my life to bring together two of my favourite stars, Hrithik and Deepika, for the first time to the Indian and global audience. I am thrilled to begin the journey of MARFLIX, a production house dedicated to action film making in India. I start this journey of Marflix along with my life partner Mamta Anand. Starting MARFLIX with Hrithik is special as he is someone who has seen me even working as an AD, then as director on two films and now I am not just his director but I’m also starting my production house with him."
He further added, "Our vision for MARFLIX is to create THE action film production house of India. If you think of action films in India, you should think MARFLIX. That's our endeavour and we will work hard to get there. Still early days, but the journey has begun."
Hrithik and Deepika were eager to work with each other since a long time. There were speculations about them coming together for a film after a video of Hrithik feeding cake to Deepika had gone viral. Calling it a wake up call for filmmakers, Deepika had said in an interview to Mumbai Mirror, "It’s amazing how my husband and I can sit together and appreciate a guy. That video of him (Hrithik) feeding me cake was a wakeup call for filmmakers to cast us together.”
Deepika had earlier revealed that she and Ranveer Singh loved Hrithik's 2019 action film War and would hit pause multiple times to marvel at him, saying “kya naachta hai, kya dikhta hai.”
