The source adds, “Vidyut has been working closely with the stunt team that has been flown in especially from South Africa for the film. This South African team is believed to have worked on some of large format Hollywood action flicks with the likes of Tom Cruise, Daniel Craig, Matt Damon etc. The stunt director and Vidyut have been working closely together to design the stunts and ensure that every stunt creates a thrill unlike anything else seen on the Indian screen. His extensive martial arts background gives Vidyut a very strong understanding and expertise in the action and stunt space as a result of which he certainly has the vision and the ability to make the impact of a stunt truly mind boggling. He has trained across different parts of the world and has been exposed to various international martial arts forms owing to which his design based inputs have been very useful in taking a stunt to a whole new level. He went to Punjab a week prior to his shoot schedule to design the stunts with the Australian team, practiced them himself with his team to ensure that they look fantastic when shot!”
