British stunt-coordinator Greg Powell, who has directed action sequences for films like ‘Fast & Furious 6’, ‘Hercules’, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ and several others, has been roped in to coordinate the stunts of Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’.
Interestingly, the Sooraj Barjatya film is said to have quite a few action sequences. While Barjatya’s first film ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’ did have a few fight scenes, his others films like ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’, ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’, Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon’ and ‘Vivah’ were some of the most peaceful movies in the history of Indian Cinema. Even the dialogues were sugar-coated with sweetness.
Sources say, the action in Barjatya’s latest will not be violent, but of the kind that we see in fun and adventure films.
Another action director Kaushal Moses, who works on Bollywood films, has also been roped in for the film.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, also starring Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Anupam Kher, releases in theatres during the Diwali weekend this year.
