Philippe Guegan, the French maestro of on-screen action, will be training Salman Khan to take his action hero image to another level. Philippe has some big international super hit action films to his credit, which include Rush Hour 3, The Transporter, Hitman, Taken, and The Kiss Of The Dragon.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has been lucky to get Philippe Guegan, who is usually booked by the leading Hollywood films for stunts in advance for months. Sajid has also convinced Philippe to come here in Mumbai to train the Bollywood actor with some amazing stunts that were never seen here.
Confirming the news, Nadiawala says, “We wanted to take the action to the next level through Kick. And, the step is taken not only for Salman but also for the Indian cinema as a whole. We are happy that Philippe has agreed to fly down to Mumbai in September to train Salman personally".
Initially, Sajid wanted to appoint Vijay, who performed the stunts in the Telugu version of the film. But Salman wanted someone of international caliber to take the action of the Kick to the next level from Dabaang.
Salman Khan is back to action after trying hands in several comedy films. And this time, he has taken the action very seriously after doing some action-packed scenes in Veer, Wanted and the upcoming movie Dabangg. The actor is now going to take some tips from Hollywood action master Philippe Guegan for his next film Kick, which is a remake of a Telugu hit film of 2009.
