Hemsworth and Pataky tied the knot back in 2010 and welcomed their first child later in 2012. Two years later they gave birth to twins Sasha and Tristan. The name for their first child India is inspired by the nation which the duo holds very close to their hearts.

On the other hand, the Thor actor also spent a considerable amount of time shooting for Extraction in India.

There was real excitement for us shooting there. We had never shot there before. From the crew, it felt like there were not many films like this being shot there so there was a unique sort of originality to it.”
