Rohit Shetty: “Sooryavanshi stunts performed by Akshay Kumar”
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty says 90 per cent of the action sequences in his upcoming film Sooryavanshi are performed by lead actor Akshay Kumar. “Firstly, 90 per cent of the action sequences are performed solely by Akshay sir. During the helicopter sequence, Akshay sir performed the stunt of jumping on a helicopter from the bike that he was riding without the support of harness, which quite shocked me and the rest of the crew,”Shetty said.
“Initially, we had kept a cut in between the sequence of jumping on a helicopter from the bike, so we can fit the harness to him. But we didn’t know when this man spoke with the pilot as he supported him in continuing the action sequence without the support of harness,” he added.
Sooryavanshi also stars Katrina Kaif and features extended cameos by Ajay Devgn as Singham and Ranveer Singh as Simmba. Sooryavanshi is set to release in cinemas screens on 24th March 2020.
