Director Siddharth Anand speaking about the intense scene left the locals stumped said in a statement, “We shot an intense, high-speed action sequence between Hrithik and Tiger in Porto. The high octane scene required Tiger to chase down Hrithik. This extensive sequence needed us to get the permission to shut down the main bridge at Porto for two days.
‘’The local authorities were extremely supportive and we got all due clearances for us to shoot this adrenaline-pumping scene. However, the locals were stunned. They had never seen their city in lock-down mode ever and they were super curious about the film. Their reactions were priceless because they were stunned seeing the kind of action that Hrithik and Tiger were performing’’ Anand added.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the high-octane film is to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on October 2.
