Having completed the shoot of a romantic number for Race 3 in Bangkok, Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez will now switch gears to action mode. mid-day has it that director Remo D’Souza has allotted the next 10 days for the shoot of a high-octane chase sequence that forms the climax of the thriller. While action is home turf for the superstar, Fernandez has been specially training for it over the past four months.

“The past week saw us filming at the Floating Market and Rose Garden in Bangkok. Next week, we will shift to the jungles of Kanchanaburi province to can the action sequence, which sees Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez running through the dense shrubs as they are chased by the villains,” says a source from the Ramesh Taurani production. Choreographed by action director Anal Arasu, the stunts will involve kickboxing and hand-to-hand combat. Considering Khan had shot for Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) prior to this, his expertise in action was not a concern, unlike Fernandez, who is relatively new to the genre.

Aware that a film like Race 3 would demand higher endurance level and more agility, Fernandez began working out under fitness trainer Namrata Purohit’s guidance as soon as she signed the project. Besides training in Mixed Martial Arts which includes Jiu Jitsu, boxing, kickboxing and Thai boxing, she also took up Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) sessions. Reveals a source close to the actor, “EMS sessions help maximise your muscular effort by engaging a greater percentage of muscle fibres. That’s how Jackie is at her fittest today.” Confirming the story, D’Souza said, “We are shooting an extensive action sequence in the virgin jungles of Thailand.”

A still from the scene

Television actor Rubina Dilaik, who plays the role of an intersex in the series ‘Shakti — Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki’, recently shot a sequence in Thailand along with transgender co-stars.

A source from the unit says, “The scene had to look grand and beautiful, so, the makers opted to shoot in Bangkok. They roped in a few transgender artists to give it an authentic feel. They looked beautiful.”

Dilaik, who was shooting for a scene in which her character was set to be sold to the highest bidder, was mesmerised by her co-actors. She was happy to notice how accepting Bangkok is of people with different gender identities. “Three to four actors that we appointed were transgender. They were beautiful. Being in their company isn’t unnatural here. We [in India] should avoid gender labels.”

Nusajaya, Johor, Malaysia: Local hope Shaaban Hussin is playing at the Iskandar Johor Open against doctor’s advice as a solid result this week will earn him an Asian Tour card for next season.
Shaaban injured his shoulder in October and will play through the pain barrier at the US$2 million Asian Tour season-ending event which features Major winner Ernie Els of South Africa, Sergio Garcia of Spain and Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand.
Shaaban insists he will not be distracted by the starry line-up assembled at the Horizon Hills Golf and Country Club as he is focussed at the important task of securing full playing rights on the 2013 Asian Tour season for the second time since 2010.
He is currently in 79th position on the Order of Merit with earnings of US$30,755 courtesy of a tied 13th result at the ISPS Handa Singapore Classic in April. The Malaysian needs at least a top-15 finish this week to reach his goal as the top-60 players on the Order of Merit earn playing rights next season.
“This is an important week for me. I had full playing rights previously and that was wonderful. I hope I can reprise those memories and do well here. If I can get inside the top-60, it will be great for my career because I will qualify for all the big Asian Tour events,” he said.
“I went to see the doctor this week and he asked me to rest but I told him I can’t. That’s how important it is for me. I injured my shoulder in India (Hero Indian Open) and it hasn’t recovered since then. I know I should really think about resting but there’s just too much on the line.
“My shoulder still hurts at impact so it is still okay. My back swing is fine so I’m quite happy about that. I still feel the pain so I’ll just need to bear with it until this week,” added Shaaban.
Chiragh Kumar of India, who has one top-10 finish at the Hero Indian Open in October, hopes to overcome the pressure-packed situation by keeping things simple as he needs to move nine ranks up the Order of Merit.
“Yeah, I have to play well to keep my Asian Tour card. I’m going to go out there and play my game. I can’t give myself extra pressure to perform well and keep my card. If I play well then I deserve to keep it. Otherwise, I’ll try again next year,” said the 28-year-old.
“Early on in the year when I wasn’t playing too well, I was putting a bit of pressure on myself to keep my card. I tried pushing myself to play well in the big events and that kind of got to me. I had some injuries early in the year which I couldn’t get fit enough to play. I feel a little better now and playing better,” said Kumar.
At the top of the Order of Merit, current leader Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand aims to fend off the challenges for Marcus Fraser of Australia, currently second on the Order of Merit, Jbe Kruger of South Africa, Indian star Gaganjeet Bhullar, Masanori Kobayashi of Japan and Thailand’s Prom Meesawat, who all have a mathematical chance to become Asia’s number one.
Meanwhile, highly rated Malaysian amateur Gavin Kyle Green will enjoy a dream pairing with Els and Garcia in the opening two rounds of the Iskandar Johor Open.
The 18-year-old, who is playing on a sponsor’s invitation, is one of the most talked-about amateurs in Malaysia, having won countless titles in the country and became the first local in 15 years to win the Malaysian Amateur Open. He also qualified for the US Amateur Open in August.
Green, who is studying at the University of New Mexico, where he is a member of the college team said, “I’m feeling excited. This is the biggest moment in my career. I’m not feeling nervous yet but it might be different when the time comes. I’ll just need to concentrate on my own game.”
