Kenny Bates to choreograph action for Prabhas’s next

Popular stuntman Kenny Bates, who has worked on films such as Die Hard and Transformers, has been roped in to choreograph an action episode worth Rs 30 crore in actor Prabhas’s next, a yet-untitled trilingual project, says a source.

“Apart from Bates, there will also be a few more popular stunt choreographers from around the world. They will work on a 20-minute chase sequence involving plenty of action. This sequence will be shot in April,” the source said.

To be directed by Sujeeth, the film will be simultaneously made in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi. The principal shooting will commence later this month. The makers are currently busy finalising the rest of the cast.

A romantic road thriller, the source added that a major portion of the film will be shot across several locations. Composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are handling the music while Madhie will crank the camera. Sabu Cyril will take care of production design of the film, that will be produced by UV Creations.
