Hrithik takes the plunge

Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif have just returned from a threeweek-long Abu Dhabi schedule of Siddharth Anand's action thriller Bang Bang after shooting some heavy-duty chase sequences. The scenes were choreographed by Hollywood action director Andy Armstrong who has the mind-boggling gravity-defying stunts of films like Charlie's Angels, Planet of the Apes and The Amazing Spiderman 2 to his credit. Bang Bang, produced by Fox Star Studios, is an Indianised adaptation of the Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starrer Knight And Day. A source close to the unit said: "Hrithik is in prime physical form and is keen to push the envelope. Despite fears of aggravating the head injury that he sustained during the film's first schedule that led to a surgery and a long recuperation, Hrithik insisted on doing all the action sequences sans a body double. Such action will be seen for the first time in Hindi cinema." It was a hectic schedule and the stars were shooting almost 12 hours a day. On the last day of the shoot, as soon as Siddharth shouted, 'Ok, Cut, Wrap', Hrithik, who was shooting on the beach, made a 100-metres dash for the ocean. "He plunged into the water, splahed around and then started swimming. Watching him chill out, the assistant directors couldn't resist the lure of the cool blue sea and joined in. It was an impromptu party," adds the source. The actors flew in on May 19 and filmed across the Emirates, at the Corniche, Liwa Oasis, Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel, Qasr al Sarab, Emirates Palace and Yas Island. Bang Bang opens on Gandhi Jayanti, October 2.
