As if first-time director Anthony D'Souza didn't have his hands fullwith Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Sanjay Dutt, he decided to up theante by shooting quite a bit of Blue underwater. That, too, surrounded by sharks.
'The scariest part of Blue was the sharks. Getting them toact in my film was not easy,' said D'Souza. 'We had shark handlerspresent on the shoot to make sure that nothing untoward happened. Butit was a risky business. Everyone who was around knew that these wereliving, breathing sharks and that it was their turf.'
However, thousands of razor-sharp teeth were a small price topay to make Bollywood's first underwater movie, which promises action,adventure and plenty of thrills.
And with underwater specialist cinematographer Pete Zuccarini (Pirates of the Caribbean, Deep Blue Sea), action director James Bomalick (The Fast and the Furious, Tokyo Drift), music director A R Rahman and sound engineer Resul Pookutty in the picture, we won't accept anything but the best.
