“The only girl I cud dare this! For super @priyankachopra my #bangbangdare HANDSTAND with a push up!! Do u accept! U have 3 days,” tweeted Hritik on September 21. A day later, Priyanka said “Really Hrithik? You should have made it harder,” in her video reply. She then went on to do a handstand followed by three pushups as per the challenge, going a step further by performing the act with high heels on. Clinching the matter with a final “Anymore? Nothing’s too difficult for Mary Kom”, she proved she was up to the challenge.
Contented with her performance, Hrithik declared her the winner and retweeted “Give it up 4super peecee guys! Unbelievable!! This one can really just about do anything! #bangbangdare.”
Invigorated by the challenging stunts in his upcoming film Bang Bang! And wishing to promote the movie, Hritik Roshan began to dare his colleagues from Bollywood with what he calls bangbangdare. So far, he has challenged the likes of Sonam Kapoor, Uday Chopra, Dino Morea, and Shah Rukh Khan to execute difficult or daring feats.
The film, an action-packed thriller which stars Hritik as Rajveer Nanad and Katrina Kaif as Harleen Sahni is a remake of the Hollywood movie Night and day starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, who gave us movies like Bachna Ae Haseeno, Salaam Namaste and Anjana Anjani; the film budgeted at INR130 and will be out on the 2nd October in Hindi, Tamil and Telegu.
Hritik tested his limits in Bang Bang!, earning bragging rights to claim the title of first actor to perform a fly boarding stunt in a Bollywood film. He told Mumbai Mirror, “I have pushed myself to the extreme for this stunt. This sequence called for mental and physical tenacity. The rush that I experienced while training and executing the sequence was out of the world.”
Apart from this, demanding INR30 crore for the movie, he became the first Bollywood actor to ask for the highest amount any actor in Bollywood had charged up front till that date
Despite several hurdles like having to undergo brain surgery in July due to an injury from a stunt, his separation from Suzanne in December and ligament tears in both his knees this August; the star performed all the stunts in Bang Bang! By Himself.
