Thankfully we got an A-team that came together to push the visual envelope with Pathaan and I was delighted to have someone like Casey O’Neill, who has extensively worked with Tom Cruise, to be by our side.”
For the uninitiated, O’Neill is an Emmy-nominated action director who has choreographed some death-defying stunts in films like Mission Impossible and Top Gun: Maverick, among others. He has also worked on Marvel projects like Captain America Winter Soldier as well.
