Salman Khan who has been entertaining the Indian audiences with his action packed punches and thrilling stunts is all set to deliver some Hollywood ishtyle punches in Ek Tha Tiger. The stunts of the film have been designed and co-ordinated by ace Hollywood stunt directors who have iconic action flicks such as Rambo- First Blood (1982), the Lethal Weapon series and Rush Hour series to their acclaim.
Director Kabir says, "I was sure that we needed action sequences that looked real, and yet retained the element of larger-than-life heroism. That is why we approached Conrad Palmisano."
The great stuntman is considered to have launched Jackie Chan and Jet Li in Hollywood.
Kabir adds, "As a stunt co-ordinator, we roped in Markos Rounthwaite, because of his work in Bourne Ultimatum (2007). The action in the Bourne series looks so real and gives you a sense of exhilaration."
Salman will be seen in hand-to-hand combats and chase sequences showing off his Parkour skills which hasn't been seen in his earlier hit action flicks like Wanted (2008), Dabangg (2010), Ready (2011) and Bodyguard (2011). The star is now going to be seen in the avatar of a secret agent in a spy romantic thriller starring opposite Katrina Kaif.
The film which is set to release this Eid has been shot in Ireland, Turkey, Iraq, India and Cuba. A source from the production house says, "The first promo featured stunts like Salman jumping from a tower and shooting villains as he slides backwards down a flight of stairs. It's got a good response."
The director says, "The stuntman and action crew were drawn from 12 countries, and the action sequences were shot across three continents. I'm sure our stunt sequences will redefine action in our industry."
