Randeep Hooda tells The Quint that he felt like a “kid in the candy store” when he was on the set of Extraction. “One day we had to shoot this huge flip where I crash into cars. They got me to sit in a car and all the controls were at the back in the boot and a guy was lying there and controlling everything. I didn’t have to do anything. They also take a whole lot of safety measures. We have safety lags in India. I have been at the receiving end many times. I felt so secured doing the most dangerous stuff,” Randeep adds.

Rudhraksh Jaiswal says he got a lot of time to prepare for his scenes with Chris Hemsworth. “I did most of the stunt scenes and I got to sit with Sam sir and Chris sir for readings. We delved into our characters, the back story of the characters and it was truly a big learning experience working with these legends,” he adds.

Priyanshu Painyuli says he had a hard time trying to brush up his Bengali and the Bangladeshi accent. “I was sweating and really nervous and in Hindi, I can at least improvise if I forget a line. But here I had no option but to know what the lines were. A lot of the actors with me were Bengali and I could see the confidence in them and I was so slow in catching up,” Priyanshu says.
