Director Siddharth Anand is thrilled to work with Hrithik Roshan in Bang Bang, which he calls the story of a quintessential Bollywood hero. Says he, "A Hindi film hero is supposed to act, fight, emote, cry and dance. Hrithik is on top of the game in all these and does total justice to the role." 


The director, who's venturing into action for the first time, adds, "As far as stunts are concerned, Hrithik has already pushed the envelope with Krrish 3, and there was a pressure to go beyond that. So, we have a Formula One car zipping through the streets, Hrithik jetting 30 feet above the water, thrills with jet skis and motor boats, and much more. His action scenes will be talked about."


The water sequence, Anand says, was particularly tough. "We can control the action we shoot on land, but while shooting at sea, you're at the mercy of the tide. Three days before the shoot, Hrithik started practising the stunts for five-six hours daily. It took us eight days to shoot the sequences in water." 


The leading lady, Katrina Kaif, also rose to the challenge. "She is integral to the script and we needed someone who could perform stunts. Also, Hrithik and Kat look good on screen," sums up the director. 


The film's teaser will be out today. Bang Bang, produced by Fox Star Studios, releases October 2.
