After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan, it's Salman Khan's turn to work with a Hollywood stunt director.

British stuntman Greg Powell will direct the actions scenes in Salman's film "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo". Sooraj Barjatya's films are mostly family drama, but his upcoming film has fight scenes and Powell has been hired to direct these scenes. 

Apparently, an action scene involves Salman, his step brother (in the film) Neil Nitin Mukesh and Armaan Kohli's character. The scene requires boxing and hand to hand combat that will look realistic on screen and Powell has been designing that, according to

Powell was also spotted on the sets of the film "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" along with the other cast and crew.

The stunt director, who is known for his work in super hit franchises including "Harry Potter", has worked with Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar in "Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty".

Meanwhile, several Bollywood directors are roping in Hollywood stunt directors for the high-octane action scenes.

Last year, Siddharth Anand roped in "Amazing Spider-Man 2" stunt director Andy Armstrong to design the scenes in the movie "Bang Bang" starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif.

Even "Jazbaa" director Sanjay Gupta hired Hollywood stunt director Spiro Razatos, who will direct Aishwarya Rai's action scenes in her comeback film.

Razatos, who directed the action scenes in "Fast & Furious 6", will work with the Bollywood diva for the high-octane action sequences, The Times of India reported.
