Extraction was shot extensively in India last year. The film also stars actors Pankaj Tripathi, Priyanshu Painyulli, and Rudraksh Jaiswal. It revolves around Tyler Rake (essayed by Hemsworth), a fearless, black market mercenary, who embarks on the most deadly extraction of his career when he is enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. It has been shot extensively in India, along with other places around the world.

Talking about working with Randeep in the film, Chris told Hindustan Times in a recent interview that he rehearsed his scenes a lot with Randeep. “Most of my stuff was with Randeep…we had endless rehearsals and it was so exhausting for the both of us,” Hemsworth continued, but “none of it felt like work” because everyone was putting in “110%.”
In another interview, he said, “With Randeep, it’s wonderful. Our first introduction was… We had three weeks of fighting each other and we both had our fair share of cuts and bruises. And actually a couple of times I nicked him, but it was by accident and I felt very embarrassed,” he said describing the intense combat sequences they shot in hot weather.
