We hear that producer Rahul Mittra and the rest of the crew did special arrangements for the action sequence that features Saif Ali Khan chasing down a character on the main road. Saif was reportedly so excited about the entire sequence that he took it upon himself to do all the bold and daring action sequences that involved everything from jumping atop the cars at a lightning speed to navigating through the traffic while ensuring a fast chase.
With nearly 10,000 people turning up for the shoot, Saif’s stunts won him whistles and claps from the onlookers. As the shoot progressed, the crowd got out of hand, and so nearly 500 security guards and cops had a difficult time managing people. Saif also had to step out of the shoot to request the crowd to calm down.
Rahul Mittra says, ”Hazratganj, one of the nerve center of the city, is an extremely crowded place and that made it impossible for us to shoot. People were very eager to see Saif Ali Khan, as for the first time an action sequence has been shot there. It’s only because of the support of local authorities that we could manage to shoot smoothly and in time”
BULLETT RAJA will see Sonakshi Sinha and Saif Ali Khan in the lead pair and also stars Jimmy Shergill, Vidyut Jamwal, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Ravi Kishan and Chunky Pandey.
