More POWER to serve u better!” With a lot of action packed in the teaser, Hrithik is winning a lot of accolades from his industry colleagues, who have been raving about the hunk. The little sneak-peek of the film proves that Hrithik and Katrina have truly arrived with a ‘bang’, and hopes are high that the film will create records at the box office. Read on to know a few lesser known facts about the film.
It was on the sets of Bang Bang that Hrithik Roshan faced severe injury on his head. Because of this very injury, Hrithik had to undergo a surgery and had been away from shooting for some time. However reportedly after the surgery, a body double was called on the sets of Bang Bang to perform the stunts, but Hrithik preferred to do it himself. According a report in The Times of India, an insider said that when Hrithik reached Shimla, he was not happy with the scenes so he wanted to shoot it himself. But the body doubles were available on sets all the time. A source was also further quoted saying, “Hrithik will do the action sequences on his own. The stunts are designed by Andy Armstrong who was working on ‘Spider Man 2’.”
Hrithik Roshan’s personal life was on the rocks, with the news of him separating from his wife of thirteen years, Sussanne Roshan. It was during these tough times that Hrithik had been shooting for Bang Bang with Katrina Kaif. And reports stated that on the sets, Hrithik had found solace in friend Katrina.
A specific sequence of the film was shot in Bangkok. According to a report in The Times of India, the team of Bang Bang was returning from an action shoot at the ocean, and the boat they were travelling on was suddenly hit by a storm. The report further stated that right in the middle of the ocean, the whole team was given instructions on how to survive at sea. In the cabin of the boat, Katrina and Hrithik were sitting along with the other cast members.
Being a top notch actress, Katrina Kaif was reported to have thrown some tantrums too on the sets of Bang Bang. According to a report in The Times of India, the team of the film was in Greece for a special photo shoot with Katrina. And they were already there to shoot some high octane sequences and reportedly had a local professional photographer at work. However the report further stated that Kats wanted her favourite lens man to click her, and finally the pictures taken were hardly of any use and video grabs had to be used instead.
Bang Bang has been subject to several delays till date. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the Kashmir schedule of Bang Bang was delayed because of unrest in the valley; the report further stated that director Siddharth had also added a snow sequence to the film, which had resulted in another delay in the schedule. Also with Hrithik’s major injury the schedule had to be pushed further on. According to reports, all the delays resulted in Katrina Kaif’s another film, Phantom being postponed.
