‘Pathan’: Makers to rope in four action directors to design stylised sequences for Shah Rukh Khan – Eagles Vine

Shah Rukh Khan is all set to end his self-imposed sabbatical with Siddharth Anand’s ‘Pathan’ and his fans are expecting it to be more than worth the wait. While the film is being mounted on a big scale already, now the makers are planning to rope in four action directors to design stylized sequences for the superstar in the movie.

According to a report in a news portal, the makers have already roped in South African stunt artiste Craig MacRae and are yet to finalise the others. Craig, who has designed sequences for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, ‘Bloodshot’, and ‘War’, has already landed in the city on June 8 with his four-member team. After quarantining at a hotel in Mumbai, the team joined Shah Rukh and John Abraham this week. The actors reportedly kicked off the latest schedule with confrontation scenes, and will film major fight sequences early next month.

The report also added that the idea behind having different experts is to have breathtaking stunts in the movie, ranging from martial arts to hand-to-hand combat and chase sequences. The makers of the film also intend to conduct a schedule in Europe sometime between July and August. However, it all depends on the travel restrictions in the countries at the time.

‘Pathan’ also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. The trio will be seen sharing the screen space for the first time in the movie. Apart from them, the makers have also roped in Salman Khan for a special cameo in the movie. Salman’s popular ‘Tiger’ character will be seen helping Shah Rukh’s character in taking down the baddies in the film. It also features Dimple Kapadia in a key role.
