Upcoming Eid release, the Salman Khan-Ayesha Takia starrer, WANTED, has some amazing action sequences and we had informed our patrons almost a year in advance as to how much of an effort Salman Khan was putting in to make the action scenes look authentic. We also told you how Salman had hit the gym, given up smoking and drinking and was leading a much disciplined life in order to make his character believable. And seeing the amazing action promos we are convinced that we were right.
This was confirmed by none other than Salman himself who when speaking about the type of action in his film said that there are seven major action sequences in WANTED, which were so very elaborate and dangerous that they took almost ninety days to be canned. Now we know why there was a delay in making of the film. He further revealed that though the stunts were dangerous, he performed all the stunts himself and did not take the help of any duplicate and that he had to work really hard to shoot them.
Salman credited the action director Vijay, who really helped him in carrying out those amazing action scenes effectively. He also remembered the day producer, Boney Kapoor and director, Prabhu Deva showed him POKKIRI (the Telugu version of which WANTED is a remake) and Salman asked them, ''Am I too supposed to do all those action sequences and stunts?'' and to that they replied, ''Yes, that is why we have taken you as the hero!''
Well, surely after seeing the film, the audience too will agree with Boney and Prabhu, and if the promos are any indication, WANTED certainly looks a winner!
