Aditya Chopra wants to outdo the stunts of Krrish, flies down Hollywood stunts experts to rework stunts of Dhoom 2


All actors of Dhoom 2 are now realising that they have a demanding boss. First Aditya Chopra asked Aishwarya Rai to lose weight for the film, now he has asked Hrithik Roshan to rework his stunt scenes.


Producer Aditya Chopra has flown down special stunts experts from Hollywood for his film. According to industry insiders, he decided to rework the stunt scenes directly after Rakesh Roshan showed him the action sequences of Krrish in February. All in the name of some healthy competition.


The incident, which was a closed-door one, is narrated to us by trade analyst Amod Mehra. “Rakeshji told me that Adi Chopra was very impressed on seeing Krrish. He loved the quality of the stunts. He immediately decided to rework the stunts in his film too,” says Amod Mehra. Incidentally, Hrithik is sporting a completely different look for Dhoom 2, and he is working 18 hours a day to complete the film.


Currently shooting in Namibia, Dhoom 2, is directed by Sanjay Gadhvi (who also directed the original Dhoom). Hrithik Roshan plays a negative role in the film and has a lot of stunts in it. “Earlier the Chopras had signed famous action director Alin Amin to choreograph the action sequences, but now they have also signed on a few experts from Hollywood,” says Mehra.


So Hrithik Roshan is all set to redo many of the stunts. “Hrithik is not allowed to use body doubles and there are some stunning action sequences which will create history in Bollywood cinema,” says our source.


The buzz goes that Adi Chopra will show the landing of an airplane on a road in Dhoom 2. “It's going to be done by professionals from Hollywood, which will be the highlight of the film,” says our source.


According to Mehra, Adi Chopra wants to make the action sequences better than Krrish. “It's true that he wants to make the stunts better that Krrish. Everyone in India has already seen Krrish, so they'll have to give come up with superior to it to get in the audiences. Incidentally, both the films have Hrithik Roshan, so at the end of the day, it's Hrithik who will benefit,” says Mehra.


We tried to get in touch with Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Gadhvi in Namibia. But both were unavailable for comment.
