Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif recently returned from a three week-long Abu Dhabi schedule of Siddharth Anand’s ‘Bang Bang‘ after shooting some heavy-duty action sequences.
The scenes were choreographed by Hollywood action director Andy Armstrong who has stunts of films like ‘Charlie’s Angels’, ‘Planet of the Apes’ and ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2‘ to his credit.
“Hrithik is in prime physical form and is keen to push the envelope. Despite fears of aggravating the head injury that he sustained during the film’s first schedule that led to a surgery and a long recuperation, Hrithik insisted on doing all the action sequences sans a body double. Such action will be seen for the first time in Hindi cinema.”, said a source.
It was a hectic schedule and the stars were shooting almost 12 hours a day. On 12 hours a day. On the last day of the shoot, Hrithik, who was shooting on the beach, made a 100-metres dash for the ocean.
“He plunged into the water, splashed around and then started swimming. Watching him chill out, the crew couldn’t resist the lure of the cool blue sea and joined in. It was an impromptu party,” added the source.
The actors filmed across the Emirates, at the Corniche, Liwa Oasis, Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel, Qasr al Sarab, Emirates Palace and Yas Island.
‘Bang Bang’, produced by Fox Star Studios, is an Indianised adaptation of the Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starrer ‘Knight And Day‘.
‘Bang Bang’ will be releasing on October 2, 2014.
