Actor Michelle Lee, who specializes in filming action scenes, will be seen kicking some asses in the action film Tiger 3, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. She brought to life the Turkish hamam towel fight scene in Katrina, which went viral when the trailer was unveiled earlier this month.

Michelle isn't surprised that the scene with the towel fight from the Tiger 3 trailer has become one of the most talked about! She explains that the actress, Katrina Kaif, had practiced for more than two weeks before filming the scene.

She remarks, "I'm not surprised." She found the process of filming it to be quite epic. After a few weeks of learning and rehearsing the battle, they 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 added.

Michelle boasts about Katrina Kaif, saying that her commitment to perfecting action scenes has exceeded her expectations. Katrina was as graceful and professional as can be, according to her. She put a lot of effort into making sure that every action flowed and was precise. "It was clear she had experience in choreography so it was super easy to work with her. We worked up a sweat!”

Further, she talked about how the biggest challenge of the action sequence was that they had to manage the towels that were wrapped around their bodies. 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.” Striking each other at the ideal distance so that it looks close enough to be strong and dangerous but far enough to not actually hurt each other was another challenge, she continues.

Meanwhile, Michelle Lee has acted alongside Tom Hardy in Venom, Brad Pitt in Bullet Train, Scarlett Johannson in Black Widow, and Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean.
