Salman Khan will be seen in the distinctive Thai rickshaws performing action scenes for upcoming film, Ready
Salman Khan recently shot some high-voltage action sequences while driving a tuk-tuk (see box) in the narrow streets of Pattaya, Thailand last week.
Perhaps inspired by Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan's fast-paced ad in the ubiquitous Thai rickshaw, Khan suggested to the director Anees Bazmee that they shoot some action scenes in one, as it hasn't been done in a Hindi film as yet.

Every month, thousands of backpackers descend on the island of Koh Phangan where the event has been for each full moon since 1985.
It's a cash-cow for the Thai government, drawing about 30,000 revellers during peak seasons and around 10,000 to 20,000 others on any given month. And now more than ever, Australians are joining the party.
Lured by the guarantee of low-cost flights, a wild time and cheap alcohol, they cram themselves onto the island's exotic Haad Rin beach to dance the night away.
Now an investigation by The Sunday Telegraph has uncovered a high-risk, unregulated and dangerous culture of drinking and drug taking -- among revellers and "officials" -- which any parent would shudder to think their child is walking into.

Liam Neeson has described his time filming a cameo for The Hangover 2 as "intense".
Talking to MTV News, the actor - who portrays an Irish tattoo artist living in Bangkok in the upcoming comedy - recalled working with the film's stars on a set built to look like a Thai city on the Warner Bros lot in California.
"Oh, it was [fun], it was. It was pretty intense. I was only there for one day - a Sunday, as far as I remember," he explained.
"But it was good to be with Bradley Cooper - he's a buddy - and the other two gentlemen [Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis], I'd never met them before, but I love what they do."
Neeson added: "The three of them are just, they reinvent the Three Stooges in a very funny way."
The Hangover 2 will hit theatres in the US on May 26 and in the UK on May 27.
