Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan’s magnum opus ‘Viswaroopam’ is making more headlines with each passing day. The latest is that Kamal has roped in Hollywood’s leading stunt director Lee Whittaker for the climax scene of the film that is currently being shot in Mumbai.
Whittaker is debuting in Indian cinema through this multi-lingual project and it is said that he initially refused to work on the film but was later okay with it after watching some of Kamal’s stunts in his earlier films.
This is an aerial stunt and Whittaker is known for them. It features Kamal and Rahul Bose who underwent rehearsals from more than a week before the actual shot. Few sources further express that the safety element in these stunts were very minimal and Whittaker expressed that these very more dangerous than the stunts he has choreographed in Hollywood!
It’s said to be a fight scene were Kamal Haasan who is known for getting into the skin of the character he plays and Rahul Bose have pulled off some daredevil stunts without any body double.
