Didn't realise Marvel films were so popular in India, it's overwhelming: Chris Hemsworth
Chris Hemsworth's upcoming film, Extraction, will premiere on Netflix on April 24
Actor Chris Hemsworth found shooting in India "overwhelming" because of the positivity and enthusiasm that he experienced while filming the upcoming Netflix film, Extraction, in the country.
"I loved shooting in India. The people were incredible. I didn't realise how popular the Marvel films were in India. So that was, at times, overwhelming," Hemsworth told IANS during a special video call before the release of his Netflix movie.
"There was such positivity and enthusiasm for all of us and our crew... During shooting, we had hundreds and thousands of people on certain days lining up on the streets and up on top of bridges and in buildings, you know, after every take, cheering and applauding. I've never experienced anything like it. And as I said, I have such fond memories of India and the people there," he added while recounting his time in India.
Hemsworth shot for Extraction in India in 2018. He shot in Ahmedabad and Mumbai. The Thor star was scheduled to be in Mumbai on March 16 to promote the film. However, the promotional tour was called off due to the global coronavirus outbreak.
Originally titled Dhaka, the film also stars Indian actors Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi, Priyanshu Painyulli, and Rudraksh Jaiswal.
Extraction, directed by Sam Hargrave, will premiere on Netflix on April 24.
