“The experience is purely divine and we have no words to express the beauty of Almaty. The snow-capped mountains, golden sand deserts, the scenic canyon as beautiful as the Grand Canyon and many such lovely places give one an experience of walking through dreamlands. We as a team are extremely happy and proud that Agni Siragugal happens to be the first-ever Indian film to be shot here in Almaty. We will be shooting some of the breathtaking action sequences with the famous Nomads stunt team here, which is popular for martial arts and horse fights. I firmly believe that soon after the film’s release, Kazakhstan will turn into a major tourist attraction site for Indians,” said Naveen.

They have been a part of movies like Mongol (Mongolian), Mulan (English), Kelin (Kazakh), 47 Ronin (English), Nomad (Russian), Myn Bala (Kazakh), and Viking (Russian). The group has worked with various Hollywood icons on set including Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Bruce Willis. It even worked with SS Rajamouli for Baahubali: The Beginning.
