‘Fighter’, dubbed the biggest aerial action spectacle of India, has been adding to the excitement of Bollywood fans with a series of song drops ahead of its release in time for India’s long holiday weekend this month.
The film, directed by Siddharth Anand and presented by Viacom18 Studios in association with Marflix Pictures, stars Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover and Akshay Oberoi in lead roles. It hits the cinemas on January 25, a day before Republic Day.
This week, team ‘Fighter’ unveiled the adrenaline pumping Heer Aasmani, an anthem honouring the valiant men and women of Indian Air Force (IAF).
Siddharth Anand shares: "Heer Aasmani is a track that's dedicated to the special Squad of Air Dragons coming together. The song showcases the crew bonding, both during briefing and training sessions as well as during their downtime.

“The theme of Heer Aasmani is an Air Force Pilot expressing their unconditional love for the skies, their passion; a love so pure that it is almost unfathomable to those on the ground. Heer Aasmani has a very unique flavour. My vision was to have a song that is modern in presentation but has rustic vocals. The song beautifully came together, complete with an addictive guitar riff along with rooted vocals by B Praak. The end result is an unexpected synergy of music forms coming together in a soulful rendition."
The song is composed by Vishal & Sheykhar, with lyrics penned by Kumaar, and sung by Vishal Dadlani, Sheykhar Ravjiani, and B Praak.
The filmmakers describe 'Fighter' as more than just a movie, a tribute to the courage, sacrifice, and determination of our IAF warriors, showcasing their remarkable stories and the unbreakable bond they share with the skies they protect.
