With action-packed movies such as ‘Race 2,’ ‘Agent Vinod’ and ‘Taalash’ coming up this year, it seems Katrina Kaif wants to be as much a part of the action as the Khans.
Kat who is currently shooting for ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ opposite Salman Khan seems to be fascinated with the idea of performing her own stunts. She is being coached for the task by Hollywood’s action director Conrad Palmisano who choreographed stunts for films like ‘Transformers,’ Nicholas Cage’s upcoming ‘Seeking Justice’ and ‘21 Jump Street.’
Apparently, Kat is really pushing herself to set a benchmark in her career. The 27-year-old recently claimed that she was bored playing the damsel in distress in her movies and wanted to take on a new challenge.
A unit member said that Kat’s free-falls and midair fights with Salman shocked everyone on the sets. Incidentally, Conrad had initially planned easier stunts for Kat and death-defying sequences for Sallu. But when Kat watched her co-star perform his stunts she immediately asked Conrad to let her do whatever Salman was doing. Struck by her enthusiasm, Conrad agreed.
In fact, Kat is so serious about her role that she wakes up at dawn every morning and practises her stunts under the Cuban sun.
Good going Katrina. Now you know why filmmakers are so impressed with her!
