Mumbai, July 21 -- Salman Khan isn't new to action sequences, what with stunts in Wanted (2009), Dabangg (2010) and Ek Tha Tiger (2012).
In his upcoming film, Kick (to release on July 25), sources claim he will raise the bar higher. Not for nothing then has producer-turned-debutant director Sajid Nadiadwala blown up nearly 57 cars, 13 buses and one helicopter.
According to an insider, "This is the first time that a production team has arranged for the given number of vehicles to be exploded. It's also the first time that drones have been used to shoot a [Bollywood] film."
Sajid says, "I like to make films which are larger than life. A particular sequence in the film sees Salman drive through the city, creating a ruckus. We first shot in London, but couldn't complete it (the shoot) as Salman couldn't make it there. Then, we moved to Poland (they shot in Warsaw). The quiet city had never seen anything of that sort before. Of course, Salman insisted on doing the stunts himself."
Salman says, "I've been lucky to get producers who are willing to spend money. We, as heroes, can only kick that high, or jump that much... That is when technology comes in, and safety comes in... All of this take us [as actors] to a new level."
