Randeep to Make H’wood Debut With Chris Hemsworth in ‘Extraction’

Talking about his character, Randeep said in a statement, “I get to do a lot of action in the movie. I might be the first Indian male actor to do such an action-packed role in a Hollywood film. It was a great experience working with Hemsworth, Russo brothers and the director, Sam Hargrave.”

“It (Randeep’s character) is described as a wrecking ball in the script. He’s had a run as a military personnel and is now working for Ovi’s father. For the action shots, we rehearsed twice a day for 10 days, since many of my roles so far have been more dramatic. I must say, I’ve never had a director on a wire, hanging next to me, giving me instructions,” he added.

Produced by the Russo brothers, Extraction marks the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave, who worked as a stunt co-ordinator on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The film follows Tyler Rake (Hemsworth), a mercenary who is enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) of an international crime lord. As he tries to successfully complete his mission, the two develop a bond that offers Tyler a chance at redemption.

Netflix had earlier shared a couple of stills with Chris Hemsworth from the film.

Extraction was shot extensively in India and Thailand, and also features Pankaj Tripathi.
