Extraction is on its way to becoming one of Netflix's biggest original films. It has garnered over 90 million views and news surrounding possible prequels and sequels are also showing up. Earlier on Sunday Chris Hemsworth took to his Instagram to thank the millions of fans around the world who have tuned in to watch his latest action film. The Russo Brothers creation also stars Randeep Hooda who shares multiple well-choreographed action set pieces with Chris Hemsworth in the film.
Hooda has now shared a new behind the scenes video from extraction. In the video, he can be seen practicing a famous knife fight scene with Hemsworth. He captioned it writing, "You perform how you practice. @randeephooda and @chrishemsworth putting in the rehearsal time for #Extraction @netflix @netflixfilm (sic.)”
Previously in an interview with India Today Hooda shared a lot of insight into acting alongside Chris Hemsworth. He said, "We practiced for weeks. We attended workshops and started with the basics of holding a gun, firing a bullet, throwing a punch. First, it was done individually, and then it was Chris and I and then other actors. So the preparation work is what gives the scenes spontaneity. Chris came for all the rehearsals. It was a bit daunting at first when they told me they will do it in a single shot and at that speed and with that intensity. I was like 'what are you saying?' But Sam told me 'If you got to be an action hero you have to do this sort of thing.' See, Extraction is not just action, but action with heart. There's a lot of drama about family and shows nuanced relationships, which actually elevates the action (sic.)
