Director Milan Luthria faced a unique challenge during the making of his upcoming multi starrer film, Baadshaho, that features considerable action sequences on the road.
For the exception of Ileana D’Cruz, all the others stars – Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jammwal, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra – were required to drive old jeeps, pick-up trucks, armored truck, motorcycles and even cars that were used in Rajasthan in the 1970s. Under the able guidance of Ajay Devgn, who has earlier driven such vehicles in ‘Kachche Dhaage’, the actors were able to hone their skills very soon.
For training the cast, who found maneuvering the vehicles difficult, Milan Luthria flew in a German action crew for the car sequences. They also spent weeks modifying the engines, handbrakes, clutches and transmission to make sure that the vehicles performed as required.
Baadshaho, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Milan Luthria releases on September 1.
