Akshay jumps from 45 feet height
Akshay Kumar is an action star. His stunts always impressed his fans. He returns to action after a long time with 'Rowdy Rathore' which received a grand opening at the box office and huge applause from audience. Riding high on the success of ‘Rowdy Rathore’, Akshay has yet again impressed his crew member for his dare devil stunt which he has done all by himself without seeking any help or using body double.
Akshay Kumar jumped from 45 feet height for his new co-production venture with Himesh Reshammiya. Although a cable and harness was arranged for his safety but Akki decided not to use any of these safety materials. He used only mattresses and cardboad boxes with cushion for safety if he falls down.
An eye-witness from the unit says, “The shot was picturised on Tuesday evening at Madh Island. The production unit and stunt director Jai Singh insisted that Akshay use a cable wire but he refused. The entire unit got together to watch Akshay’s stunt scene and were amazed at his decision to do it without any duplicate or safety measures.
The scene had Akshay jump from the balcony of a bungalow to come face-to-face with co-star Asin. While the entire unit clapped on the one-take shot, the actress was stunned by the Khiladi’s act and could not stop complimenting Akshay on the shot.”
Akki will be next seen in Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’ opposite Sonakshi Sinha.
