Most Bollywood films these days are hiring international stunt director and coorinators to execute the slick action sequences for the big screen. The latest to join this is Glenn Boswell, who was roped in by Ashutosh Gowariker to work on the elaborate action sequences for his upcoming film Mohenjo Daro starring Hrithik Roshan.
Having just wrapped his work on Peter Jackson's Hobbit Trilogy in New Zealand, Boswell has flown into Mumbai to begin work on Mohenjo Daro which will require a great deal of planning for the type of action sequences the script requires."I am really excited to work with Ashutosh. I love his passion for film making, something, which is not very prominent in many filmmakers anymore as it used to be. I loved reading the script of Mohenjo Daro and am looking forward to designing and shooting the stunts, as there is an opportunity for some great action in this film." said Boswell.
Gowariker, on his part seemed excited to work with him, "I had always wished to work with the man who choreographed the incredible action sequences of Matrix and subsequently of Wolverine and Hobbit. And I feel thrilled that, I will be working with Glenn Boswell. His robust and stylish action choreography will bring to life the action sequences in Mohenjo Daro and I am excitedly looking forward to that."
Mohenjo Daro is an epic love story, set during the Indus Valley Civilization and is one of the first ever attempts to tell the tale of that unique time on the big screen.
