“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 a 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 have been eager to work with each other for a long time.

There had been speculations about them collaborating 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.”

Bollywood fans of Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone have taken the news of their upcoming collaboration with pomp and circumstance.

Whereas, another said: “Omg! I can’t wait to see them together!!!”

As time goes on, more details about the film will be revealed, increasing the excitement among fans.
