Mumbai, Jan 26: Besides some spine-tickling humour, this Friday’s release 'Sunday' also promises breathtaking action.
Those who know director Rohit Shetty’s idea of entertainment know well that the guy is definitely going to blow up some cars in his film. In Golmaal he blew a dozen cars for an action sequence. And now he has gone further in his latest flick ‘Sunday’.
The film has a gritty car chase sequence in which as many as 19 cars were blown during shooting.
The shooting took place partly in Delhi’s Pragati Maidan and partly on the streets. More than 100 cars were used to create the traffic. The scene showed the film’s leading men Ajay Devgan , Arshad Warsi and Irrfan Khan being chased by goons in cars. Arshad plays the taxi driver.
Rohit, who is the son of yesteryear action director Shetty, says all the precautions were taken to ensure the safety of the actors. But still, the sequence was so risky that he was nervous and worried while shooting it.
A variety of sets were erected around a wide road to recreate a bustling city. Hundreds of people were involved in the shoot. There were multiple camera set-ups to capture shots from different angles. About 1.5 crore rupees were spent in shooting the entire sequence.
And over the period of days during which the sequence was canned, 19 cars were blown to smithereens using controlled explosions.
Rohit says it is one of the best car chase sequences audiences would see in Hindi cinema.
‘Sunday’ is a suspense thriller with a good dose of comedy and action. The film stars Ayesha Takia in the female lead.
