MUMBAI: It's obvious that Shah Rukh Khan's Pathan will be a slick action thriller. While videos from Dubai of the actor fighting atop a car have gone viral, a report suggests that producer Aditya Chopra has roped in four action directors to shoot various high-octane stunt sequences featuring SRK, John Abraham, and others.
It revealed that South African stunt artiste Craig MacRae has started work on the film. A trade source revealed, "Craig, who runs the stunt company, Titan Stunts with Katja Hopkins, and his four-member team landed in the city on June 8. After quarantining at a Juhu hotel, the team joined Shah Rukh and John Abraham this week. The actors kicked off the latest schedule with confrontation scenes, and will film major fight sequences early next month. Craig is a highly-skilled martial artiste too, and has designed sequences for Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Bloodshot (2020) and War (2019)."
The reason behind picking four separate stunt directors is to have a variety of action styles in the film, ranging from martial arts to hand-to-hand combat and chase sequences.
