Shooting the climax
Sonu Sood plays Aishwarya Rai's brother in the film. His death scene is superb. Sonu has done a great job.
This scene, as well as the climax, was quite difficult to shoot.
In the climax, Niketan Dheer's army marches towards Hrithik's army, and then the two fight. It was difficult because the rest of the people have to watch them fight. The first two rows were filled up with my 250 stuntmen, so that nothing would go wrong.
The climax was shot over 20 to 30 days, because Ashutosh wanted it to be perfect. The 5,000 villagers, who were also part of the army, would get tired, and it was tough to get them in the same position through the day. They had to stand, and not even move in those scenes. Sometimes, they would not turn up the next day.
