He directed Sheila LeBeouf’s stunts in Transformers. Nicolas Cage, too, is busy learning his action sequences from him for his forthcoming film Seeking Justice. But currently, Hollywood action director Conrad Palmisano is busy helping Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan perform some daredevil stunts on the sets of Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger in Cuba. And Mumbai Mirror has learnt that Katrina under the tutelage of Conrad is busy performing what a member of the Cuban unit describes as the ‘real thing’.
The real thing is ‘scary’ but Katrina isn’t afraid. Talking about her stunts, Katrina said, “It’s scary. But it is also great fun. I’ve only done very delicate feminine roles till now. This is a new challenge for me. I guess that’s what I’m looking for at this stage of my career.”
A unit member informed Mumbai Mirror, “Katrina is really pushing herself to perform stunts that are generally done by male actors. She has been doing free-falls and midair fights with Salman.”
Apparently, action director Conrad had initially suggested something ‘softer’ for Katrina. “Two very different sets of stunts were planned for Katrina and Salman. But Kat was too excited and wanted to do whatever Salman was doing. Conrad finally gave in to her wishes,” added the unit member.
Katrina in fact has been getting up really early to practice her stunts under the Cuban sun. “She wakes up at the crack of dawn. And she gets down to serious business. She practices every sequence.”
