Mahesh Shetty, also known as UNNI from the movie “Fighter,” recently opened up about his experience working with Hrithik Roshan, shedding light on their camaraderie and the genuine bond they shared on and off-screen.
In Siddharth Anand’s action thriller “Fighter,” Mahesh portrays the role of Squadron Leader Rajan Unninathan, who serves as the wingman to Patty, played by Hrithik Roshan. Their on-screen dynamic reflects a deep sense of mutual support and patriotism as they navigate through challenging situations to protect their country.
Reflecting on his experience with Hrithik Roshan, Mahesh shared, “In the Air Force lexicon, a Wingman is a pilot who flies alongside the leader of a flying formation providing mutual support, so their bonding is always on another level. This was the brief where we started from, and hence Hrithik and I started bonding well before the shoot began.” Mahesh further expressed admiration for Hrithik’s genuine nature, describing him as sweet, humorous, and incredibly down-to-earth. Despite Hrithik’s superstar status, Mahesh emphasized that there were no airs or tantrums on set, making the entire team feel like one big family.
Mahesh fondly recalled Hrithik’s endearing gesture of addressing him as “Yaara” on set and appreciated the actor’s dedication and hard work, which set him apart as a true professional in the industry.
