The very posh British action-director, Greg Powell, who has done the stunts for Fast & Furious 6, the last James Bond film Skyfall and several Harry Potter films, has been roped in to do Salman’s very intricate action scenes in Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Barjatya and ‘stunts’ may seem to be a contradiction in terms. But according to a source from the gentle director’s team, “This time there will be a lot of fights…fun fights. Salman will be shown doing sword fencing, something which we haven’t seen in a Hindi film since Pankaj Parasher’s Rajkumar.”
According to the source, Salman is having a ball with the fights.
“Salman hates gruesome violence. He feels it puts off his younger fans, the kids specially and their parents. The fights in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo are the kind we see in the big Hollywood fantasies, flamboyant and fabulous.”
A Bollywood action director Kaushal Moses has also been roped in by Sooraj Barjatya.
It looks like the director of modern-day Ramayan-remixes has discovered a penchant for adventure and action.
