Salman rides a tuk tuk taxi in ‘Ready’
Salman Khan looked intense in a biker boy makeover – leather jacket, tee and faded jeans – riding a taxi in Thailand for an action sequence for his upcoming film – Ready. Salman went an extra mile to add that special zing to Anees Bazmi’s comedy drama.
The 45-year-old star suggested an action sequence based on Thailands iconic Tuk Tuk taxies, a first for any Bollywood film.
The production team liked Salman’s suggestion and an action scene was spontaneously written and shot. It showed two tuk-tuks blowing up and the actor jumping into another one and driving off.
Producers, Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Rajat Rawail, had to buy 3 Tuk Tuks especially for the scene since they would end up being completely destroyed. They happily did so, keen that ‘Ready’ live up to fan expectations created by Salman’s earlier action films – ‘Wanted’ and ‘Dabangg’.
Bhushan Kumar confirms, “It was Bhai’s idea to shoot with tuk-tuks which are very fast and powerful. He wanted to shoot an action sequence nobody has done before. 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.”
An insider adds, “Salman drove the tuk-tuk expertly, although it was his first time doing so!”
‘Ready’ is slated for release on June 3....being a human...
