Salman Khan’s making sure that his action sequences in ‘Ready’ are different (particularly from Shah Rukh Khan’s action scenes on a desi cycle-rickshaw). So we’ve got Sallu performing his stunts on a tuk-tuk, the Thai auto-rickshaw, in the narrow streets of Pattaya for the movie.
"It was Bhai’s (Salman’s) idea to shoot with tuk-tuks which are very fast and powerful. He wanted to shoot an action sequence nobody has done before," Bhushan Kumar of T-Series said.
"People have shot romantic songs or scenes perhaps, but such a high-voltage action sequence will be seen for the first time in ‘Ready’. People will enjoy this unique Thai action," he added.
Following Salman’s suggestion of using a tuk-tuk in the shoot, an action scene was especially written and shot. The scene required two tuk-tuks to blow up and Salman had to jump into another tuk-tuk and drive off.
The producers – T-Series and Rajat Rawail – bought three tuk-tuks especially for this scene. ‘Ready’ releases June 6.
