19 Apr – Although it has been several years since actors Zizan Razak and Shaheizy Sam have worked together as buddy cop duo Inspector Sani and Inspector Khai, nonetheless both their return to set in action film "Polis Evo 3" proved to be seamless.

The actors took the steps to become the characters that they portray while also working on their on-screen chemistry as partners, and this has been the case since they worked together for the first "Polis Evo" film back in 2015.

"From the first film itself, I have felt Zizan's love and support. Perhaps we were too deep into our characters ourselves that I felt that it was Zizan who touched me, and not Inspektor Sani. Hence it was easy to bring our partnership back on screen again for "Polis Evo 2."

"So needless to say, there isn't much effort to work on our partnership for this third movie as we already have that in the bag," explained Sam during the "Polis Evo 3" press conference at Six In The City, Petaling Jaya, late last week.

Zizan shared that they both had spent a lot of time together to discuss and just chat, especially since Sam has moved to his new home near Zizan's not too long ago. The actor had relocated from Bukit Antarabangsa to Shah Alam and they are now in the same neighbourhood.

"Before filming began, we opened our hearts and our thoughts to each other and had a good chat. Sam also always advised me to dispel ego and emotions," Zizan explained.

Talking about the action scenes in the film, Sam said that he only agreed to do it as long as it is not too risky that it would affect the filming progress.

"I would do the fight scenes myself. But if the stunts are such that there is a high risk of injury, I would leave it to the stunt team. It's not because it is difficult, but because if I do get injured, it doesn't just affect me but the whole production team. So what I can do, I would do," he explains.

Sam revealed that they have worked with different directors in the franchise – each of them showcasing their abilities and unique direction. The first "Polis Evo" (2015) was directed by Ghaz Abu Bakar and grossed RM18 million, "Polis Evo 2" (2018) was directed by Joel Soh and Andre Chiew and grossed RM25 million. And for this third instalment, director Syafiq Yusof takes on the task.

"Each director has their talents, focus and personal touch. Ghaz likes a fresh and feel-good story, while Joel's is darker and Shafiq is more relaxed," Sam revealed.

Zizan added that every director understood the characters development of Inspector Khai dan Inspector Sani, and that is important.

In addition to Sam and Zizan, the film also stars Sharnaaz Ahmad, Nora Danish, Syafiq Kyle, Douglas Lim, Farali Khan, Fauzi Nawawi, Fezrul Khan dan Eyka Farhana.

"Polis Evo 3" is set to be unleashed in cinemas starting 25 May!
