As if it weren’t already fancy enough, Dubai has decided to add a little more sparkle to it. In case you didn’t know, Dubai is coming up with its first ever Bollywood inspired theme park. And guess what, none other than Shah Rukh Khan is teaming up with them to shoot the high-speed chase scenes for its immersive 3D ride – Don: The Chase which will premiere at the opening of the park.
Talking about it, Shah Rukh said, “The park is a mix of rides, excitement and adventure, while staying true to the ethos of Bollywood. Films are a reflection of reality where we strongly believe in our hopes, and the same will be translated to the park where you will have fun!”
Shah Rukh even recited his famous dialogue from the film, Don. He added, “This time the chase is in Dubai, on the very famous Sheikh Zayed Road and also other famous landmarks of Dubai. As the famous dialogue of the movie goes – ‘Don ko pakadana mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai’ that means it’s not only difficult to catch Don, but impossible as well.”
Directed by Reema Kagti, this ride was completed with the support of over 100 members from the production team. The team ensured that every aspect of the ride should exude the essence of the original movie, so that the fun begins right at the start as visitors enter the ride pre-show area and immediately become a part of the story.
He further added, “A movie star is made by the team, who work’s behind him or her. You feel completely redundant and useless, if you don’t have a good team supporting you. The star of the show carries a lot of his own notion on the set and if it is channeled in the wrong direction, then the whole set or the making goes wrong. But if it is nice, then it permeates to everyone and the hard work required does not seem like ‘hard’ work at all.”
The park is scheduled to open on 31st October.
