He told The Daily Telegraph, “He’s been guiding me through this journey. If I’m stuck or need advice, I always reach out to him. He’s my idol. He always brings out the best in me. He also helped me improve my acting techniques and taught me the art of dialogue, voice modulation and taking pauses in between lines.”

Extraction, directed by Sam Hargrave and produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, became the most-watched Netflix original film in the first month of release. The action movie was watched by over 99 million accounts, which prompted a sequel to be officially put into motion.

“We had such a great time in India. People were beyond welcoming. I’ve never had that kind of response. I was blown away. I thought I was Beatles or something,” Hemsworth had told PTI previously.
