Director Sanjay Gupta has begun shooting action sequences for his upcoming film ‘Kaabil’, which features Hrithik Roshan in the lead.
The filmmaker has joined hands with action director Peter Hein, who has worked on many South Indian films such as ‘Sivaji’, ‘Anniyan’ and ‘Ghajini’.
“‘Kaabil’ diary day 11. First major action sequence with the legendary action director Peter Hein. We’re using a technique never done before,” Gupta tweeted on Friday.
The film, which has been produced by Rakesh Roshan under his banner FilmKraft Productions, is set to release on January 26 next year.
Gupta has been updating his followers on the progress of Kaabil’s shoot.
KAABIL Day 1: WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY 1. KAABIL Off to a flying start. Long exhausting day at work on the sets of KAABIL is most rejuvenating.
KAABIL Day 2: Mesmerising to watch Ronit Roy get into the groove of his character. He’s done tremendous homework to look so effortless.
KAABIL Day 3: The team has gotten into the groove and we can feel the magic happening. Take after take. Shot by shot. Scene by scene.
KAABIL Day 4: Started shooting with Hrithik today. His focus, dedication & perseverance makes him the superstar that he is.
KAABIL Day 5: Super productive day. The unit is now like a well oiled machine. Unstoppable come heat or dust.
KAABIL Day 6: It’s actually nights now. Long schedule of all night shoots has begun.
KAABIL Day 7: Rohit Roy outdid himself today. What a kameena bad boy he makes.
KAABIL Day 8: Our DOP Sudeep Chatterjee has been creating magic on set with his lights and a lot of fog. We raced against time as usual.
KAABIL Day 9: Everyone on set is amazed with what our Production Designer Sumit Basu has created. A red warehouse overlooking the city. After a long night of work it feels funny to have a drink just as day breaks. But my DOP says our day has just ended. So it’s well deserved. All night shoots is actually the toughest part of film making for me. Throws you totally off balance with your family.
KAABIL Day 10: Take by take, shot by shot, scene by scene… It is so amazing and wonderful how a film comes together. Driving to work, terrible traffic and I’m having a blast listening to the songs of #KAABIL. Can’t wait to shoot these awesome melodies.
KAABIL Day 11: First major action sequence with the legendary Action Director Peter Hein. We’re using a technique never done before. Day breaks as we call it a day, sorry night.
