Salman to perform Statham style action in 'Kick'
Salman Khan who is ruling the roost in Bollywood now with back to back super hits.
Salman Khan, who has done high adrenaline rush stunts in movies like wanted, bodyguard and Dabangg, is now all set to repeat the similar acts in his upcoming film.
All his movies post Wanted were filled with unbelievable stunts. But producer Sajid Nadiadwala wants something more in relation to action in the remake of Kick and so, he hired Hollywood stunt coordinator Philippe Guegan who made Jason Statham do some killer action moves in Transporter series. The film is the remake of Telugu blockbuster ‘Kick‘ and will be directed by Shirish Kunder.
Sajid who is producing the film wants the film to have action scenes like Transporter and that’s why he has roped in Philippe Guegan to coordinate the action scenes in the film. Guegan has coordinated the stunts in many Hollywood blockbusters like Transporter 1, Rush Hour 3, Taxi(1,2,3).
A source said that Sajid always wanted something different with Kick’s remake. Apart from making it very different than the original, he wanted the action feature to be unique and breathtaking. The source explains that he wants raw action that is more hard-hitting. Such should be the impact that when Salman beats up the goons, the audiences can actually feel the punch. We can’t stop but wonder how funny our filmmakers can get. Instead of coming up with a realistic story, they are investing time, money and resources on realistic action sequences. Well, such are the ways of Bollywood we tell you!
