The Stunt People in Bollywood film with Saif Ali Khan – Day 1

I was referred to the Swish film production company by a Lucas-something (if you’re out there, let me know so I can thank you! I forgot the name!), and they were busy preparing to shoot a big-budget Bollywood film in San Francisco. I was called in to do the fight choreography, and Dennis Ruel and Jackie Do were cast as a couple thugs (Santos and Lai) who beat up the star of the film, Saif Ali Khan.
Call us ignorant Americans, but we had no idea who Saif Ali Khan was until we looked him up on IMDB, and holy… the guy’s famous, and we’re working with him on a 35mm project. It’s been a huge honor. Saif (apparently he also goes by Saifu) is super nice and did all his own stunts and was courteous to us when it came to the choreography. Later in the night his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor showed up on location, and I looked her up on IMDB. Okay, they’re both huge. She left after a couple hours but not before we grabbed some photos with the “Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of Bollywood.” Other Hindi actors on location were gushing over the fact that two of Bollywood’s biggest stars were sitting 10 feet from us.
The scene is less a fight scene and more a brutalizing of Saif’s character. I can’t dispell any more than that, and I can’t promise these photos will stay up, but everyone in the production has been super cool. Once I get the title of the project I’ll post it right here.
