Michelle Lee, a Hollywood actor known for her fight scenes with Scarlett Johansson, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Tom Hardy, has joined the cast of Tiger 3 starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Lee appeared with Kaif in the now-viral towel fight scene set in a Turkish hammam, as seen in the film’s trailer.
In an interview with a leading news portal, Michelle said, “We learned and practised the fight for a couple of weeks and then shot it. The set design was absolutely gorgeous and the fight was really fun to do. It was wonderful being on an international film.”
Michelle shared that she was impressed by Katrina Kaif’s commitment to mastering action sequences. She admired Katrina for her grace and professionalism, as well as her diligent efforts in perfecting the precise movements and ensuring a smooth flow. Michelle also noted that Katrina’s experience in choreography made their collaboration effortless.
Michelle further explained that the most difficult aspect of the scene was managing the towels they were wearing. She said, “Our towels needed to stay in the proper place and with so much movement and fight choreography, it was definitely a challenge. We ended up having the towels sewn closed at certain points and that helped a lot.”
She further explained that one of the challenges during the towel fight scene was to maintain the perfect distance while striking each other, making it look dangerous but not hurting each other. She adds that neither of them got hurt and they made it work for the camera.
Tiger 3, a part of the YRF Spy Universe, has been produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Maneesh Sharma. The movie is scheduled to release on November 12 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu languages.
