Director Rupesh Paul, who is ­making a film titled NaMo, based on the life of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, is roping in international talent for the project.
We’ve been informed that Rupesh has brought on board Hollywood stunt director Jared S Eddo, who has worked on several ­big-budget Hollywood films.
“Jared has been signed on to choreograph the action sequences for the movie. He is among the top stunt directors in Hollywood with movies such as Godzilla (1998), Jurassic Park III (2001), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), Kill Bill Vol 2 (2004), 300 (2006) and The Expendables (2010), among others, to his name. He will be joining the team of the film in the third week of February,” reveals an insider.
Rupesh met Jared at a film event in Los Angeles, where he was promoting his last film, Kamasutra 3D. Asked about his collaboration with Jared, Rupesh says, “Jared will redesign the contemporary Bollywood-style stunts, making them look more practical and breaking the clichéd action sequences. As NaMo is a political thriller, the action sequences form a major part.”
