Mohit Suri is recreating Goa in Mauritius for the Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani-starrer 'Malang', which features Anil Kapoor as the antagonist, while Kunal Kemmu plays another negative lead. The thriller, which is also a passionate love story, went on the floors in March and the team shot in and around the beaches.
For the sequences, Disha underwent extensive training in water sports as her character pulls off several water-based stunts.
“She prepped and trained in scuba-diving and kite-surfing for almost a week before kicking off her shoot,” revealed a source.
Along with Aditya, Disha also had some aerial stunts, so sky-diving and jumping off the cliff were also a part of her prep.
“She had the option of using a body double, but Disha was keen on doing the stunts herself so she could overcome her fear of heights,” the source revealed, adding that the team of the Bhushan Kumar and Luv Ranjan production took precautions and the stunts were performed in the presence of professionals to ensure safety and authenticity.
According to the source, it is Anil and Kunal’s track with Aditya and Disha that takes the film into the thriller zone.
“Akshay Oberoi, as a Goa-based cop, is an important thread in the story,” the source added.
