Hrithik Roshan’s Fighter, after its theatrical run has ended, is making noise on the OTT platform. The film was touted to be a big money spinner at the box office, and though it did reasonably well, it wasn’t up to the mark considering the scale and cost. Thankfully, it is now reaching more audiences on the small screen, and in fact, it has defeated Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki and Prabhas’ Salaar with its debut numbers.

Hrithik & Siddharth Anand’s combo failed this time!

Before this aerial action drama, Hrithik and director Siddharth Anand worked together for Bang Bang and War. Both films were highly successful at the box office and enjoyed a good theatrical run. This time, to give a much better experience to the viewers, a much bigger budget was spent, and it ultimately took a toll on the film’s verdict.

Due to a budget in the range of 250-300 crores, Fighter failed to emerge a clean success against its Indian collection of 212.50 crores. In isolation, this number looks good, but a much bigger total was expected from the film.

Fighter hits it out of the park on OTT!

For those who don’t know, Fighter arrived on Netflix on 21st March, and ever since its arrival, the film has been enjoying a bumper response. As per officially published data by the OTT giant, it has enjoyed 5.9 million views globally during its opening week (18-24 March). In the Films (Non-English) category, it grabbed the 3rd spot in the debut week, which speaks volumes about the genuine interest in the Hrithik Roshan starrer among viewers.

Talking about the watch time, Fighter was viewed for 16.2 million hours on Netflix during the opening week.

Fighter defeats Dunki & Salaar

With 5.9 million views in the opening week, Fighter has successfully surpassed the numbers of Dunki and Salaar. For the unversed, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer had enjoyed a viewership of 4.9 million during its opening week on Netflix. Speaking about Prabhas‘ magnum opus, it debuted with 1.6 million views (no Hindi version included).

Let’s see if Fighter manages to be consistent in its viewership for a couple of weeks.
