Ever the perfectionist – the international superstar Hrithik Roshan will ensure every aspect of his new action thriller film Bang, Bang goes to plan by enlisting the help of two body doubles to perfect the right climatic feel for the film.
The high-octane blockbuster Bang, Bang, which is the Indian version of Hollywood film Knight And Day, will have specially choreographed stunt sequences designed by international stunt supremo Andy Armstrong (The Amazing Spider Man 2). Hrithik Roshan will have two of the best body doubles in the business to undertake the wide angle, panoramic sequences, whilst the superstar himself will do all the close-up stunts.
Hrithik, who underwent brain surgery in July 2013, resumed filming of Bang, Bang this month in the wintery hill station of Shimla with co-star Katrina Kaif. The film calls for the action superstar to perform some death-defying stunts, including an adrenaline-inducing 40-foot rooftop chase in a populated area of Shimla.
A source close to the star explained: “Unlike rooftops in cities like Delhi, those in Shimla are sloped with the steep valley on one side. While Hrithik will do all the close-up scenes, the body doubles will be used for wide angle and long shots.”
And it seems Hrithik’s hard work is still not complete, with the whole cast and crew of Bang, Bang moving on to Delhi to film a car chase sequence.
