“We are very excited to have Dhanush in the film,” said Gosling, “He is incredible. He is a great actor and has such an amazing presence on screen. He is so precise, he never made a mistake. We shot this fight sequence and we reshot it multiple times. It underwent so many different incarnations. Dhanush never made a mistake, and it seemed inhuman. He is so funny and charming. The biggest difficulty was pretending to be enemies, because I just liked him so much.”

However, it has also come to be known that the 39-year-old filmed some of the movie while carrying a neck injury which the actor sustained just a week prior to the shoot.

“It’s funny. Just one week before the shoot, I sprained my neck,” Dhanus said during a conference in LA ahead of the film release, “So, a month and a half were spent training, and then one week before we start filming, I sprained it and was like ‘What am I going to do?!’ The physio had just a week’s time to get me ready to match Ana’s speed [laughs]. But somehow, they found a way to make me fit for the stunt sequence.”

“I had a great time understanding how Hollywood works,” he went on, “I’ve done about 50 films – 22 years of work in the Indian film industry. You often don’t get the chance to feel like a newcomer. The first time, it all happens in a blur. You don’t realize what’s happening. This time, I had an opportunity to look at myself like a newcomer. It was really amazing.” [H/T Republic News]
