“For this scene, Salman fired around 5,000 cartridges, over three consecutive days. It actually becomes one of the most iconic shots of the film. Because the gun was being used continuously, we needed to keep two such weapons ready for use. It generates extreme heat and we worked in very hot conditions. We had to flip the gun continuously, and keep both in perfect functioning condition,” he told DNA.

Lifting a gun that weighs near to 25 kgs and continuing to fire until the perfect shot is captured, that too in extreme weather conditions in Abu Dhabi, sounds like no cakewalk. Pretty sure the sequence turned out mindblowing!
