The most hyped 'Diwali' release, BLUE, boasts of international names like James Bomalik (action) and Peter Zuccarini (DOP underwater). Since action sequences form an important part of the taut action drama, the best person to talk about it is obviously the action director, James Bomalik.

During the course of discussion, it was but obvious that James would mention Akshay 'Khiladi' Kumar, and that he did. He told us, "I really enjoyed working with Akshay. His skills matched that of mine, because I too (like Akshay) have a martial arts background, fifteen years to be precise." The humble action director revealed (laughingly), "Before that I was a bodyguard."
He added, "Working with Akshay was an enjoyable experience. He is very professional and fit. You just have to give him a brief about what you want and how to go about it, and there is a perfectly executed shot!"
Well, James thanks for those exciting insights into the 'Khiladi No. 1' and we are sure that the action sequences of BLUE will definitely be worth a watch on the big screen.
