Tom Struthers and John Street are not easy to impress, especially for a team that has worked on some of the finest action movies in Hollywood such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Blood Diamond, Saving Private Ryan, Inception, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. However, the talented action directors were left speechless after Rishi Kapoor performed a brilliantly executed action sequence on the sets of D-Day without any training or rehearsals.
The veteran actor was shooting for an action sequence with Irrfan Khan which required him to crawl on the ground and engage in some intense hand to hand combat. Rishi Kapoor, who plays the character of Goldman, India’s most wanted criminal in the movie surprised the action director duo with his agility and accuracy in performance making the sequence look not only authentic but also extremely well executed leaving both Tom Struthers and John Street amazed. Tom Struthers was also heard saying that Rishi Kapoor’s performance was ‘one of the best he has seen’ in his career spanning over two decades.
D-Day is produced by DAR Motion Pictures and Emmay Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Directed by Nikhil Advani, D-Day stars Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Arjun Rampal, Shruti Haasan, Huma Qureshi, Akash Dahiya, Sree Swara and Chandan Roy Sanyal amongst others. The movie is slated to release on the 19th of July.
