Records are meant to be broken, especially when big-budget films starring superstars of Bollywood hit theatres one after the other.
The latest movie to break records is Salman Khan's "Kick". Salman's most awaited film of the year has already broken the record of Shah Rukh Khan's "Darr" even before its release. SRK's film "Darr" released in 1993 had held the record of longest chase sequence in a Bollywood film, which has now been broken by Salman.
Salman has shot a couple of long chase scenes on various vehicles including a bicycle, modified bike and a double decker bus in Delhi for "Kick". The one shot in Old Delhi was quite difficult as it had to be shot on busy streets and narrow lanes, Glamsham reported.
The scene features several stunts and audiences will get to see the "Kick" actor doing some stunts at some landmark locations. The scene, which features Salman doing wheelie or jumping off from a bike, has been captured using multiple cameras placed on high-rise terraces and other strategic places to formulate the best shots.
The makers are now planning to approach the Limca Book of Records to register the scene as the longest chasing scene. However, since the whole team is busy with post-production work of the film, they will register it post the release of "Kick".
The film is set to release this Eid, i.e. on 25 July and the makers and lead actors are busy promoting the film online as well as several places in India. "Kick" is Salman's most awaited film as it is releasing during his lucky period.
With the longest chasing scene record, the film has started creating buzz that several other box office records will also be shattered once the film is released. Even trade analysts are excited about the film's release as they are hoping that "Kick" will fetch some big numbers from the collection centers.
"All I can say is that 'Kick' will take a record-breaking, earth-shattering opening! The combination of Eid and Salman Khan will make sure the film has a fabulous opening, easily grossing over 30 crore, which for a working day weekend is fantastic," trade analyst Taran Adarsh told DNA.
