Zayed Khan comes across to many as a sophisticated, suave, and thorough gentleman. But little did anyone know about Zayed’s passion for the one thing that all boys love– bikes
And now, the charming actor will be seen traversing across the Bahamas on his original love for Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd.’s upcoming underwater action thriller Blue.
The film is slated to be the most expensive Indian film to date which promises viewers spectacular, breathtaking stunts by its lead actors.
In the film Zayed Khan plays an urban nomad with singular driving passion– bikes. And when the dashing young Khan learnt that most of his stunts would involve bikes, he was super excited! His craze for bikes got the better of him and the debonair completely let go of himself when it came to performing the stunts.
Says our source, “Zayed was like a kid with a new toy. He insisted on performing all his bike stunts on his own. He is quite the daredevil”. Insiders also claim that for a particular action sequence, the actor jumped down from the second floor of a building onto a taxi standing down, without a harness And he did it not once but twice
A wide range of biking leathers have been used for the bike chase sequences designed by Surily Goel. Director Anthony D’souza also boasts of using the “ultimate arm” –a sophisticated equipment that has only been used in Hollywood films till now to capture high speed chase sequences. The equipment including biking leathers, protective gear and “the ultimate arm’ was specifically ordered from the U.S in accordance with Zayed’s character for the film who will most likely set a trend with his professional and stylish biking gear.
“Blue’ will be the first Indian film wherein the desi viewers will get a taste of the fast paced action, a la Hollywood style
With Akshay kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif to give company to Zayed’s intriguingly audacious feats, the audience is surely in for an edge of the seat entertainment
