“Similarly, in ‘Sanak’ there are many real life stories that we recorded and many books by popular author Vince Flynn that I took my inspiration from. So that the action sequences don’t repeat themselves, we designed them so that Vidyut fights in a hospital, in the MRI room, in the physiotherapy room or in the water therapy room, using the machine’s magnet train to disarm people. As we were designing action sequences for the film, I knew it should be an old Hong Kong style of action, much like Hollywood action superstars like John Woo and what people saw in the movie “John Wick” . Sanak offers ballet action. It becomes easy to take photos with Vidyut because he is such a brilliant martial artist himself. I think we did a good job trying to keep all of the emotion, thrill and intrigue in the film along with great action. Hopefully everyone will enjoy watching the movie as much as we enjoyed making it, ”adds Kanishk.
