Delhi: Producer turned director Sajid Nadiadwala is leaving no stone unturned in crafting his upcoming project ‘Kick’ to perfection. While the film already has the name of Salman Khan as its lead actor, Sajid is now roping in Alexander Witt, the cinematographer whose consummate work in the latest Bond flick ‘Skyfall’ left many agape.
Apart from the Daniel Craig-starrer blockbuster, Alexander Witt has also been an integral part of the crew in many big Hollywood films; some of which are ‘Pirates of The Caribbean’, ‘Casino Royale’ and the like.
An insider informed a leading daily, “Sajid wants the film to have a classy and edgy feel, especially since it’s going to be shot in London and Hong Kong. He has to complete the formalities (of the deal) today because Alexander isn’t available next week. In principle, he has already agreed.”
‘Kick’ is expected to go on floors somewhere around July/August this year. And Alexander Witt is to come down to India to meet Sajid and Salman before the shoot commences.
Sajid Nadiadwala confirmed the news to the daily, saying, “When I watched Skyfall, I was most impressed with the look of the film. It has been shot in a very sleek manner. And all of it was done without arming Bond with any modern gadgets. I’ve wanted to work with the DoP (Director of Photography) from that team since then.”
