The Bounty Hunter, which released in the US last March will make its Indian television premiere this Saturday.

Though critics all over the world panned the film, it still managed to rake in 130 million dollars worldwide and featured Jennifer Aniston, who’s known for her romantic comedies. Talking about her part in the film, she says, “I had never really done anything which had so much action before. I loved the Midnight Run element in the film. It just seemed like fun.” The actor performed most of the stunts in the film herself. “While doing the stunts, I’ve been dumped, thrown into a trunk and ran miles in four inch Manalos. I have to tell you, it was so much fun,” says she.

Her co-star in the film, Gerard Butler, was romantically linked to Aniston during the pre and post production of the film. While promoting it in Paris, the two were filmed visiting tourist spots hand in hand.

Says the film’s director Andy Tennant, “A lot of people don’t know that Gerard is actually 14 years old. Aniston, at times, found him trying and at the same time endearing, because he’s such a boy-boy. Their chemistry was fantastic.”

“He’s (Gerard) just funny! He’s a gorgeous, Scottish actor who you think you should be afraid of. But the truth is that Gerard is a real softie,” says Aniston.

The film’s storyline revolves around a bounty hunter (Butler) hired to retrieve his ex-wife and former reporter (Aniston), who has skipped bail.

“The fun thing about the film is that Gerard falls in love with me while pursuing and chasing me. It’s about how a reporter and a cop break things down, till the end.” The Bounty Hunter will make its Indian TV debut at on PIX at 9 pm.
