The makers of the upcoming film Fighter had recently announced the #ThankYouFighter campaign during which they urged people from all corners of the country to express gratitude to India's Air Force officers. The initiative is in tandem to the film, which is set to show the tales of bravery by our IAF officers.

The campaign accumulated 2,50,000 handwritten letters and 15 lakh online letters from across the nation, which Hrithik and Anil made sure reached the officers.
