Mumbai: Hollywood action star Jason Statham seems to have left a deep impression on Salman Khan. Bollywood’s dabangg Salman set the coffers ringing enacting larger than life fight sequences inspired by Statham in films like ‘Wanted’ and ‘Dabangg’. And if sources are to be believed Sallu plans to do stunts similar to that of Jason Statham`s ‘Transporter’ series, in his upcoming movie ‘Kick’ directed by Shirish Kunder.
Given the fact the Salman’s trademark action style is a sensation among the masses, producer Sajid Nadiadwala is said to have roped in a stunt coordinator Philip Guegan for ‘Kick’. Philip apparently, has worked with Statham in ‘Transporter’ series.
Bollywood sources confirm that this idea was suggested by Sajid Nadiadwala himself. A source said, "From the time Sajid acquired the rights to remake the south Indian hit ‘Kick’ in Hindi with Salman, he has been thinking of ways to not only make it in a different way, but also take it to another level as far as the action sequences are concerned.”
Further adding, the source said, "The idea is to have more realistic, raw and hardcore action, so that the viewer can comprehend what the baddies actually feel when Salman kicks or punches them. Interestingly, larger than life elements will be little more subtle than Salman`s shirt coming off in Dabangg and Bodyguard."
