Trust Salman Khan to come up with some crazy ideas for his movies!
News is that for his next film, READY produced by T-Series and Rajat Rawail, the actor recently shot some high-voltage action sequences driving a Tuk Tuk in the narrow streets of Pattaya, Thailand.
Salman, known for adding that extra 'zing' to his films, came up with the idea of shooting an action sequence in Thailand's famous Tuk Tuks as this was never done before in a Hindi film. Subsequently, an action scene was written and shot, showing two Tuk Tuks blowing up and the actor jumping into another one and driving off.
Obviously, the producers had to buy off 3 Tuk Tuks especially for this scene since the vehicles would face considerable damage in the course of the shoot. But Bhushan Kumar & Rajat Rawail happily did so as they wish to leave no stone unturned in creating bigger and better action scenes for READY after the success of WANTED and DABANGG.
Bhushan Kumar confirms, 'It was Bhai's idea to shoot with Tuk-Tuks which are very fast and powerful. He wanted to shoot an action sequence nobody has done before. People have shot romantic songs or scenes perhaps but such a high-voltage action sequence will be seen for the first time in READY. People will enjoy this unique Thai action.'
An insider adds, 'Salman drove the Tuk Tuk expertly, although it was his first time doing so!'
