Salman shoots action scenes on tuk-tuk

Feb 22, 2011 IANS

New Delhi, Feb 22 (IANS) If his arch rival Shah Rukh Khan shot action scenes on a desi cycle-rickshaw, Salman Khan decided to be different and performed his stunts on tuk-tuk, the Thai auto-rickshaw, in the narrow streets of Pattaya for Anees Bazmee's "Ready".

"It was Bhai's (Salman's) idea to shoot with tuk-tuks which are very fast and powerful. He wanted to shoot an action sequence nobody has done before," Bhushan Kumar of T-Series said in a press statement.

"People have shot romantic songs or scenes perhaps, but such a high-voltage action sequence will be seen for the first time in 'Ready'. People will enjoy this unique Thai action," he added.

Following Salman's suggestion of using tuk-tuk in the shoot, an action scene was especially written and shot. The scene required two tuk-tuks to blow up and Salman had to jump into another tuk-tuk and drive off.

The producers - T-Series and Rajat Rawail - bought three tuk-tuks especially for this scene.

"Ready" is slated for release June 6.
