The makers of Saaho are literally on a roll – roping in the best, be it in terms of its cast, visual effects or action sequences. The proof of it has already been witnessed in the power-packed teaser and the stunning posters that have been coming out in regular intervals. Another big news comes in the form of a high-octane stunt sequence shot in Europe and the man behind it all is, Mission Impossible action director, Kenny Bates.
According to a recent report by Mumbai Mirror, the makers have roped in Kenny in order to have some power-packed action sequences that will leave the viewers stunned. Recently, a sequence was shot in Italy which included choppers and looks like the team is trying to reach another level!
“It involved helicopter stunts and we had planned to shoot it in India. But it was difficult getting permission, so the team flew to Europe where an Italian military helicopter was sourced. Experts were on the sets throughout the shoot to ensure that safety measures were in place,” informed a source close to the development.
Moreover, the makers are trying to meet the Hollywood standards. “Such scenes are common in the West, but we have yet to see one so lavishly mounted in India. The action will be further enhanced with visual effects,” the source further added.
Meanwhile, Kenny is earlier known for working on some big-budget films like Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, The Italian Job and the Transformers franchise.
Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer “Saaho” will now release on August 30. The film was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on August 15.
