“But for the action sequences, we need a lot of preparation. For some action scenes, like the Abu Dhabi chase, we were working for almost a year. A lot of preparation and rehearsals are required. I need to support the director and the producers who spent too much,” he added.
According to reports, the makers of Saaho spent a staggering Rs 90 crore just on filming the action sequences in Abu Dhabi. Hollywood stunt choreographer Kenny Bates has been roped in for the film. Quite an ensemble but to no effect.
