Upon its release, Main Hoon Na was adored by the fans for its every aspect but action was one of the biggest highlights. Action Director Allan Amin has now opened up about the process he followed for the film's action and how it was working with SRK & Farah. He also talked about why the action of SRK's latest blockbusters Pathaan & Jawan's action didn't have enough impact.

Shah Rukh Khan's 2023 films Pathaan and Jawan proved to be historic Blockbusters. During an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Allan talked about it and said the superstar did a good job in those films but added that it was special effects mostly. "In Main Hoon Na, he did action for real. We put him on cable, and we hung him from the helicopter. We made him do all those things," he said, while mentioning that In Pathaan and Jawan it was all done against the green screen leading to less impact.

Allan Amin opened up about how he was the first one in Bollywood to introduce the concept of using cables for action. The action director said that the 2000 film Mission Kashmir was the first one to have cable work and then he followed it with Aks, Qayamat, and Main Hoon Na.

Talking about doing a new kind of action with Shah Rukh Khan, he said that SRK was always sure what he wanted and that the action director just made it simpler and doable. "Main Hoon Na was the first film in which we brought deep freeze… it was a 180-degree camerawork. It was used in the cycle rickshaw scene," he said. While adding more about the cycle rickshaw action scene, he said that a motor was put in it so that it goes faster.

Allan spilled the beans about the most difficult scene in Main Hoon Na and said that it was the climax where we see SRK running while the building explodes in the back. "We had to time it well," he said. Revealing more details about it, he said that they first made the superstar run and then the explosion was conducted. The shots were merged during the post-production.
