Our headlines may mislead our patrons into thinking that two of Bollywood's biggest superstars, Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan are coming together for a film to be directed by the Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle. But sadly, that is just wishful thinking. However, there is one very important factor that binds the three and that is none other than the famous stunt coordinator and action director Sham Kaushal.
For those who are unaware, Sham Kaushal has been in the news for composing the stunts and action sequences of last week's release, Slumdog Millionaire. Moreover, he is also the action/stunt coordinator of Karan Johar's Shahrukh Khan starrer, My Name Is Khan and Rajkumar Hirani's Aamir Khan starrer, 3 Idiots. He has an impressive list of releases coming up this year in the form of Vishal Bhardwaj's Kaminay, Nagesh Kukunoor's Tasveer and Prakash Jha's Rajneeti, apart from the three prestigious films mentioned above.
Well, Bollywood may have woken up late to the talent of Sham Kaushal, but King Khan spotted it very early on and gave Sham a break in his home productions, Asoka (2001). Later he stunned the film industry by composing some amazing stunts and action sequences for Hrithik Roshan's Krissh. Sham then went on to do Om Shanti Om for SRK's home banner, Red Chillies and he is now coordinating the action sequences of two of the most anticipated releases of 2009, My Name Is Khan and 3 Idiots.
Way to go, Sham and here's looking forward to all your stunts (literally!) in your forthcoming films...
